What Is A Physician Services Agreement

While there are many opportunities to run an PPE, compliance is an important requirement. Compensation or service conditions should be in line with VMF standards and economically appropriate, and the overall agreement should not violate federal or national rules (Stark, Anti-Kickback, etc.). As with any agreement, we recommend that both parties work with legal advisors to execute the contract. [2] Modern health care.

PPE provides hospitals and health systems with a practical and highly flexible mechanism for obtaining medical services and achieving the goals of coordination of care, access and referral. In the context of an PPE, a physician or medical group remains independent (i.e. not employed in the hospital) and provides professional services in the hospital or clinic. PSAs are used for hospital-based services (z.B. hospital doctors, intensivists, anaesthetists), emergency coverage, and coverage in outpatient clinics. They can range from part-time, narrowly defined, to non-exclusive coverage with a doctor to full exclusive services with a large multispecialty group.

Through sticky PSAs, a health system can focus on optimizing the performance of the supplier network and increasing market presence, network stability and competitiveness by creating accountability between medical groups, physicians employed and hospitals. Today, health systems are adopting value-based care strategies and need cooperation between providers and associated medical groups to help them improve the quality and costs of the services provided. On the road to value, health systems are establishing comprehensive supplier networks that must not only demonstrate network adequacy and provide a comprehensive continuum of supply, but also enable organizations to compete with better results and lower costs.
