August 2, 2013
Expiration Date: August 2, 2013
Hospitalists aren't the only ones becoming employed with the hospitals; increasingly, physicians seeking shelter from the hassle factors of private practice or needing coverage after malpractice insurance evaporates or believing that hospital employment will provide a more livable lifestyle are being hired by hospitals. Should the medical staff treat employees differently from the "unemployed" physicians? Can the medical staff sort out the conflicts of interests of physicians whose relationship with the hospital is primarily financial? How are credentialing, hearing rights and other peer review issues affected? Should employees serve in medical staff leadership? These issues and more are critical to those who are not employed with the hospital. Organized Medical Staffs need to be aware of the conflicts of interests that are presented with these two groups.
1. Identify the conflicts of interests issues that are presented by hospital employment of physicians.
