May Webinar: Pay for Performance – Impact on Hiring for Quality
Date: May 28, 2014
Time: 10 a.m. PT / Noon CT / 1 p.m. ET
Presenters: Greg Schoen, M.D. (Family Medicine); Chair, Physician Compensation for Fairview Health Services; Lynne Peterson, Director, Physician Recruitment-Fairview Health Services
You’ve probably been hearing a lot lately about pay for performance and the importance of quality with respect to reimbursement. Perhaps your organization is considering or in the process of implementing a compensation model based on pay for performance. What metrics are used in pay for performance models? How does quality play into compensation?
With quality being highly emphasized, it has become imperative that physician recruitment departments incorporate new processes to address this priority. How do you recruit for quality? How do you assess candidates differently during the interview to ensure that you will hire physicians that will be focused on quality? This session will discuss various physician compensation models with particular focus on pay for performance. Presenters will also discuss tips on how to interview and recruit physicians that will focus on quality resulting in improved clinical care and overall organization performance.
