Partnering With Community Pediatricians: Alternatives to Traditional Employment Using the Group Practice Subsidiary Model

February 17, 2016
12:00 PM - 1:00 PM

Related Industry:


Hospitals and physician groups face increased pressures related to rising costs, administrative and regulatory burdens, and reimbursement. Community-based pediatric groups seek to maintain autonomy over practice decision-making and strategy, while also improving revenue and decreasing costs. At the same time, hospitals hope to create networks of both primary-care practitioners and specialists to address population health management, respond to health reform and new payment models, and minimize losses associated with physician practice partnerships.

Join us for a discussion of the Group Practice Subsidiary Model that balances the respective goals and desires of hospitals and community physicians. 


  • Drivers of new hospital/physician integration in the pediatric marketplace
  • Legal aspects of physician alignment and partnership models
  • Discussion of various models including the group practice subsidiary model
  • How the model allows physicians to maintain day-to-day autonomy and decision-making for the practice
  • How the model immediately allows the hospital and physician groups to jointly contract with commercial payors
  • Benefits of such partnerships between hospitals and community physicians
