Physician contracts. Business and legal challenges.


There is no doubt that PPMCs are here to stay, at least for the near future. This article in no way addresses all of the legal and clinical concerns that the CNE may have when facing an arrangement with a PPMC. Even so, if the CNE can help forge agreements with PPMCs that are legally reliable, that are fiscally sound, that can be managed efficiently, and that are supportive of quality patient care, he or she will have made an invaluable contribution to the future of healthcare delivery.
