Health Care Reform: Why Physician Employment Is Not A Strategy by Itself

    May 2010

    On May 25, 2010 Squire Sanders will participate in a summit designed to assist executive teams and their boards in responding to health care reform. The event will focus on strategies for immediate implementation as well as solutions for achieving sustained success over the next three years.

    Six critical strategies will be identified during the event:


    • Acting on the reality of health reform
    • “Green strategies” to lower costs
    • Building a sustainable physician integration strategy
    • Establishing a continuum of care advantages today with an outlook for the future
    • Managing costs while maintaining a focus on quality and innovation
    • Accessing and efficiently using capital while the financial service industry recovers

    Squire Sanders Partner John M. Kirsner will co-present "Why Physician Employment Is Not A Strategy by Itself" with Charis Healthcare Manager Michael Strilesky. The discussion will address:


    • Market conditions impacting physician employment and integration
    • Key revisions of health care reform considerations that impact alignment
    • Clinical integration and co-management as an alternative to physician employment
    • Strategic considerations for the future
