Ensuring all of your bases are covered…Mitigating risk with physician agreements.
With healthcare business arrangements growing increasingly complex and financial reporting of healthcare organizations under heightened scrutiny, fair market valuations (FMV), auditing and contract adjudications are more important than ever before.
Our team of senior appraisers utilize both national and proprietary databases for FMV opinion letters in a variety of business, contractual and asset valuation work. From FMV opinion letters to contract adjudications, we have an experienced team that can provide the third-party review for all your compliance needs.
In addition to our compliance services, Dynafios also offers software products that help reduce compliance risk with physician agreements. The DYNAFIOS APP is an easy to use physician timekeeping and contract compliance app that helps ensure all contractual relationships are compliant and within FMV.
With recent changes to the Stark and AKS statutes created by the Regulatory Sprint to Coordinated Care, providers have a significantly increased ability to move towards higher quality, value-based care arrangements. With the simple requirements of a Value Based Purpose, Value Based Enterprise, Value Based Arrangement and Value Based Activities, organizations can now manage target patient populations in tighter care coordinated protocols.
A VBE can be considered a network of providers engaged in value-based activities. Any type of organization can be a Value Based Enterprise, including CIN, ACO or other contractual professional services agreement. VBE’s must have an accountable body or person who is responsible for the financial and oversight of the VBE and a governing document that describes the VBE, the purpose and participant’s intent to achieve the value-based outcomes. VBE must have a target patient population selected using legitimate and verified criteria defining the need for improvement.
The Value Based Purpose must include one of four (4) purposes:
Written agreement specifying the target patient population and value-based activities to achieve the VBE purpose. It must include the target population, description of the remuneration, and term of the agreement.
Structuring relationships with providers through a VBE provides new opportunities to target activities related to care coordination, directed referrals, and cost standardization given the new AKS and Stark safe harbors and exceptions. Partnering with post-acute providers can now include in-kind remuneration such as cost sharing for Care Coordinators. Direct referrals to specific providers or suppliers are allowed for the target patient population.
