Sponsored by: Making the Business Case for Physician Participation and Engagement in Pay-for-Performance Programs

Making the Business Case for Physician Participation and Engagement in Pay-for-Performance Programs, a September 6, 2006 audio conference, will present case studies of how pay-for-performance (PFP) programs initially engaged physicians to participate in their programs and how they are keeping them motivated for continued participation.

Tuning into the needs and values of physicians can be the crucial element between success and failure of a pay-for-performance program. This 90-minute audio conference will examine communication strategies, work-flow issues and factors that can derail physician participation.

Your expert panel of speakers, Dr. Fred Hosler, senior vice president and chief medical officer at Alegent Health and Mike O'Neill, vice president of strategy with HealthSpring will provide inside details on how their organizations have engaged physicians in PFP programs.
