Exclusive physician contracts: their benefits and drawbacks.

  • Published 1987 in Health technology

Abstract

Hospital CEOs are mandated to ensure services of high quality at the same time that they control costs and limit malpractice exposure. Especially in resource-intensive specialties such as anesthesia and diagnostic imaging, use of exclusive contracts with physician groups may increase the CEO's ability to realize these objectives. However, exclusive contracts carry some risk; CEOs should know what these are and how to minimize them.
