Physicians Services Agreement

While there are many opportunities to run an PPE, compliance is an important requirement. Compensation or service conditions should be in line with VMF standards and economically appropriate, and the overall agreement should not violate federal or national rules (Stark, Anti-Kickback, etc.). As with any agreement, we recommend that both parties work with legal advisors to execute the contract.

The concept of a sticky PPE is no different from the participation requirements set out in the agreements linking clinically integrated networks (CIN). A CIN is a collection of health care providers such as physicians, hospitals and post-acute care specialists who work together to improve costs, quality and efficiency and collaborate with health plans. To participate in NNIs, providers must sign agreements pledging to share data, promote value-based care and participate in quality improvement activities. If suppliers are unable to meet participation requirements (for example. B, they cannot share data because they do not have an EER, they do not meet the minimum quality thresholds), they can be excluded from the CIN. Participation agreements hold suppliers accountable for certain standards, foster cooperation and network integrity. Sticky PSAs shares many of these features.

The main difference is that sticky PSAs can be implemented in any organization, whether or not they meet the high standards for an CIN. Through sticky PSAs, a health system can focus on optimizing the performance of the supplier network and increasing market presence, network stability and competitiveness by creating accountability between medical groups, physicians employed and hospitals. Today, health systems are adopting value-based care strategies and need cooperation between providers and associated medical groups to help them improve the quality and costs of the services provided. On the road to value, health systems are establishing comprehensive supplier networks that must not only demonstrate network adequacy and provide a comprehensive continuum of supply, but also enable organizations to compete with better results and lower costs.
