- Discussing physician employment trends and physician-hospital alignment -
Pittsburgh, March 06, 2012 - Bryan Warren, Healthcare Solutions Manager for Select International, will discuss Physician Employment Trends at the Advances in Orthopaedic Trauma & Arthroplasty meeting on March 9 in Coral Gables, Florida. The annual event is sponsored by the International Congress for Joint Reconstruction (ICJR) and will be attended by leading orthopaedic surgeons and physician executives from around the country.
Warren’s presentation will focus on the changing nature of the physician-hospital relationship, particularly the increasing trend toward employment of physicians by hospitals and what it means for both. A few questions being addressed during the presentation include:
• In a world of healthcare reform, how can independent physicians partner with their hospitals?
• What is driving the trend toward employment, and what are the factors that make employment a good, or bad, decision?
• The physician of the future: What are hospitals looking for in their physician employees/partners, and what are the skills and competencies that physicians need to succeed?
“ICJR is a leader in physician education and research that improves quality of care,” Warren said. “I’ll be joining other speakers to address some important non-clinical topics impacting physician career satisfaction and the ability to provide the best care within the context of the changing business and regulatory framework of medicine.”
The Advances in Orthopaedic Trauma and Arthroplasty meeting offers a premier educational forum to interact with leaders and peers in areas of orthopaedic trauma care, hip and knee reconstruction, and tips for a more efficient orthopaedic practice in light of the current healthcare environment.
The three-day conference is being held at The Biltmore Hotel from March 8-10.
