Alternatives to Employment: Strategies with Independent Physicians

Physician employment is a core alignment strategy for many organizations, but it’s not right for all.

Hear a case study of one system’s successful approach from David Ping, Senior Vice President of Strategic Planning & Business Development, Health Quest.
