Health care organizations, health plans and regulars increasingly point to gainsharing and pay-for-performance strategies as key to securing needed key physician buy-in and performances to achieve desired health care quality and cost objectives. Using physician gainsharing to promote desired performances within the bounds of the law without undesirable side effects involves more than staying within the STARK exceptions and anti-kickback safe harbors.
Curran, Tomko Tarski, LLP attorney Cynthia Marcotte Stamer will discuss key strategies and processes for designing and administering legally defensible pay-for-performance and other gainsharing arrangements that promote desired outcomes in operation at the Dallas Bar Association Health Law Section meeting on June 17, 2009.
