“More and more hospitals are disrupting their relationships with physicians,”
“As to hospital-based groups, they seek to cut stipends and get more for nothing. The favored tool? The request for proposal, commonly known as an ‘RFP.’
“And as a shock to many office based physicians who for decades thought they were immune, hospitals’ moves to ‘align’ physicians include deciding who gets to participate, and who is out. Among the tools: The RFP for office-based specialty services.
“How can an RFP be avoided? Do you respond? How do you respond? How can the rules be bent?
“The resolution of these issues is of increasing importance to physician group leaders.”
