Protect your organization and medical directors from compliance risks and very large legal fines by setting up formal structures for medical director administrative roles.
Medical Directors are facing novel legal risks for regulatory compliance, professional liability and careless communication habits.
In order to maintain compliance, health care providers not only have to enter into transactions with physicians, that are at Fair Market Value and address community need, but they also have to ensure going forward that the physicians are meeting the terms of the contract.
