    WITHIN YOUR PRACTICE WALLS


    Physician compensation in the value-based era
    HealthLeaders Media
    We will have to do a major change in the next two or three years. We are waiting for the carriers to move toward value in our region. At that point we will have to redo our compensation system. For primary care, without a doubt, there will be some money for panel size, some money for seeing the patients or RVUs, some part for quality, value, some part for customer service, and then we reward citizenship as an organization. For the specialists, that is tougher.

    Ten Things Every Orthopedic Practice Should Be Doing in the New Healthcare Environment
    Fulcrum Strategies
    The past few years have been increasingly difficult for healthcare providers.

Simply put, physicians are getting out-managed, and it’s time that we finally put an end to it. What follows is an important list of ten things that every orthopedic practice should be doing in the new healthcare environment. Written by a former managed care insider, these crucial points can help practices to better position themselves for success in 2015 and beyond.

    Medical malpractice reform may not be reducing healthcare costs
    Clinical Advisor

    Viable health information exchange not likely until 2017
    By Scott E. Rupp
    The results of a new survey show broad insight into the "tentative" progress that health information exchange and true interoperability have made. After polling nearly 2,000 health plan members and patients, 800 independent and employed physicians, 700 hospital executives, 1,200 insurers and 500 health information technology vendor staffers in a span of eight months, analysts have boiled down their findings thusly: "Persistent unpredictability describes the current state of operative HIEs."

    CNBC
    Paying for concierge health care — no longer a just a perk for the super rich — is growing in popularity.
