Mark, Brandt, and Stephen discuss the differences between independent and employed practices, including treatment of overhead and other financial considerations. Because of these differences, employed provider networks usually require some form of financial assistance.
Ultimately, each organization should consider the value they receive for their investment in the employed provider network. Mark, Brandt and Stephen discuss the different types of analyses that can be performed, what to consider when using market data, measuring the investment in the network, and improving financial performance.
