  • Regulatory considerations
  • Federal laws affecting Gainsharing
  • Fraud and abuse waivers
  • Non-waived arrangements
  • State law issues
  • Tax exempt issues
  • Organizational structures: Contractual and financial arrangements
  • Fair Market Value and Commercial Reasonableness
  • Financial and market impact analysis
  • Crystal-ball predictions

Join HORNE Healthcare Partner David A. Williams, CPA, MPH, FHFMA, Summa Health System Senior Vice President and General Counsel Robert A. Gerberry, and Baker Donelson Shareholder Catherine A. Martin as they present Use of Financial Data in Business Planning for Health Systems.

Hard trends regarding technology and the use of referral data and its impact on health care delivery focusing on:

  • Technology–data repositories available and system support, types of data available, importance of downstream referral information on operations, and the organizations’ mission in the community related to access, quality, and outcomes
  • The do’s and don’ts of utilizing data–downstream referral data used as a business decision tool rather than a compensation tool, legal considerations, practical guidance, and best practices
  • The importance of systems–understanding the importance of clear communication and avoiding the landmines of not properly utilizing data
  • Case study
