In this live webcast, thought leaders assembled by The Knowledge Group will explain how to resolve a range of healthcare conflicts quickly and efficiently through mediation and arbitration. Participants will take away a greater understanding of how to make these processes work for their organizations and clients, with tips for their particular needs.
As the healthcare system in the US adapts to fundamental shifts in organizational composition, reimbursement, and the scope and means of delivering care, the potential for costly and debilitating conflicts is widespread, impairing individual and organization performance and creating systemic stress. Health care providers, executives and their counsel who understand how to minimize the costs and consequences of conflict will improve function and financial performance in their areas of responsibility.
These challenges call for evolving ideas and ways of addressing disputes. Alternatives to the court system, especially mediation and arbitration, play a critical role in addressing a wide variety of disputes within the system. These processes too must adapt to serve the new realities of how health care is delivered, most importantly the need for individuals and organizations to address conflicts quickly and efficiently so they can continue to work effectively together to address patients’ needs.
Key topics include:
- Practical and specific application of arbitration and mediation to healthcare disputes, compared to alternatives
- The key advantages for both the individuals and organization offered through alternative processes
- Most suitable and effective situations for mediation, and how to make the most of the process
- Most important ingredients of a successful arbitration
- How to craft the most effective ADR agreement in healthcare
- ADR in physician business/employment disputes
