Webinar – Antitrust 101 – A Must for Chat Users
Register today for this FREE webinar held May 8 at 1:00 PM EST. Can’t make it? View it later On Demand!
Speaker: Heidi Christianson, Attorney, Nilan Johnson
This webinar will educate you regarding the most common types of antitrust concerns that you should be aware of as an in-house physician recruitment professional. ASPR has recently required re-registration for the Chat listserv with a focus on educating members on antitrust issues. Many members have questions about what is and is not ok and legal to ask others electronically (Chat), at meetings, on the telephone, etc…regarding physician compensation and benefits packages and other related questions.
This webinar will discuss the most common “off limit” topics of discussion, the types of activity against which regulators have taken action, and penalties for engaging in antitrust behavior. We will discuss hypotheticals to bring this topic to life. Learn how to protect yourself, your employer, and ASPR by becoming educated on antitrust and what you can and cannot discuss with others.
JASPR Feature: Mentor Program is Mutually Beneficial
Mentor program is mutually beneficial
By Maddie Wagner, FASPR, CMSR, ASPR Membership Committee Co-Chair, Reading Health System, Reading, PA
Ask any mentee and you are sure to hear positive stories about how they benefited — personally or professionally — from having a mentor. But consider this…the experience can be just as beneficial for the mentor!
In the process of teaching someone else, you will learn. Everyone has talents and skills, regardless of the amount of recruiting experience they have. You may be surprised that you can teach an “old dog” some new tricks — perhaps a new job-specific skill, people-development skills, or how to use the latest and greatest technology. David Andrick from Wilson Memorial Hospital says, “Mentoring gives you the opportunity to be instrumental in the success and development of a fellow physician recruitment professional! You are allowed to share in their success and professional growth. It has also been my experience that I have learned from the people that I have mentored — which is always good! Thus you tend to grow in your own professional development.”

April Webinar – Value-Based Physician Compensation: Considerations in the Transition
Register today for this FREE webinar held April 24 at 1:00 PM EST. Can’t make it? View it later On Demand!
Speakers: Len Henzke, Principal and Maria Hayduk, Senior Manager, ECG Management Consultants
The U.S. healthcare system is in the early stages of a transition from a volume-based to a value-based reimbursement methodology that will take many years to take effect. Regardless of your beliefs about the long-term effectiveness of payment reform, physician organizations, including hospital-based and independent medical groups, will need to adapt to a payment environment that rewards value over volume. As payment models shift toward a focus on value and reimbursement becomes increasingly linked to measurements of quality and efficiency, physician organizations will need to incorporate this new focus into the day-to-day actions of their physicians. The most effective mechanism to accomplish this goal is to modify today’s physician compensation structures to better align with organizational goals in a value-based payment environment. The purpose of this presentation will be to address the critical success factors for integrating nonproductivity incentives into a market-based compensation plan.
