"Like a neutron bomb, national or large regional groups want to take over your hospital-based group's facility contract, vaporize your group, and cherry-pick your desirable assets: your physicians and other providers," Weiss said.
"These large groups often use similar tactics and approaches in attempting to displace the current group. Understanding those approaches and taking proactive steps can help a local hospital-based group to immunize itself against a large group attack."
Attendees will learn the strategies and tactics national groups use to approach hospitals, what local groups can do proactively to immunize themselves against attack, and how to use other tools to protect their group from planned contractual annihilation.
