A doctor`s contract is tied to a doctor-employment contract, but it differs from a doctor`s employment contract. In employment contracts, a hospital or other health care provider sets the conditions for hiring a physician who must work for them. As a general rule, employment contracts are specifically established to comply with federal laws that process transfers. In the event of hiring, the recently hired physician is able to obtain federal transfers to hospital and outpatient settings (called in Stark Health Services or “DHS”). The proposed financial relationship must remain in agreement with Stark and face very strict requirements for both parties. (For more information, click here.) Service agreements for outsourced third parties who, instead of working directly for the hospital, work as non-salary contractors for the hospital or health care providers. Many health care providers see purchased service contracts as a way to reduce costs. For hospitals, these types of agreements are generally categorized into four categories of contractors: clinical, ecological, support and financial services. According to beckerhospitalreview.com, purchased services can account for “up to 35 percent of the operating costs of a typical U.S. hospital.” If managed properly and effectively, the use of purchased service agreements can save hospitals significant savings, but if mismanaged, they can pose a serious risk. The contract manager must ensure that the best prices are guaranteed and that all necessary legal and regulatory requirements are met. 10.
