Negotiating your productivity target: The new payment structures
from American Medical News
The days when hospitals or health systems paid physicians a straight salary may be coming to an end.

"The flat salary contracts that we have seen in the past are now very rare," said Cheryl Waltko, vice president of Equation Consulting in Nashville, Tenn. "There may still be some out there, but it may just be that they have not been revised yet."
