Product Description

Time to Revise Your Partnership Agreement as Per Current Trends & Issues in the Medical Environment!

When was the last time you reviewed your partnership or group practice agreement to make sure it reflects current trends and issues in the medical environment? The agreement your physician signed ‘light years’ ago may be vague and contain obsolete values for buy-in/buy-outs. Your income distribution formulas may be sowing seeds of discontent or maybe your partnership is suddenly faced with an untimely departure of a revenue generating physician or a steep buy-out. As we know, the consultants are only called in the time of crisis – sudden death, disability, or departure of a physician.  

Join Debra Phairas, MBA, a practice management and malpractice prevention expert, in this informative session to learn the elements of Partnership/Shareholder/Buy-Sell issues and current trends, particularly the differences between junior/senior members.

In this 60-minute webinar, Debra will share the following with you:

  • The Seven Dangers Signs to Look Out for in Partnerships
  • The Four Characteristics of a Good Partnership
  • Code of Ethics
  • Examples of Expense Share Formulas vs. Income Sharing Formulas
  • Incentive Programs to Bring in New Associates
  • In-exact vs. Exact Buy-in Formulas
  • New Trends on Buy-out Formulas
  • Vesting Formulas for External Purchases of Group
  • Tips for Planning MD Retirement
