Panel 1: How Can You Truly Engage Physicians and Patients? 
It’s more important than ever to ensure that both patients and physicians are engaged in the care delivery process.  But what does it really mean to be engaged? Dr. Aggarwal, CMO of BIDCO, and Dr. Licurse, Assistant Medical Director for Brigham and Women’s Physician Organization and for Partners Center for Population Health will explore the various strategies their organizations use to empower their physicians at various levels within the organization to participate in improving the patient experience, enhancing coordination of care, creating systems to support physician wellness, and enhancing organizational culture. Additionally, both speakers will draw on their own personal experience and those of their colleagues to share practical strategies for physicians and their practice teams to encourage patients to take charge of their health and be proactive in managing the care they receive.

Panel 2: What Are the Current and Future Models of Physician Compensation?
As the healthcare environment continues to evolve and focus shifts to value based care, the manner in which physicians are compensated for their work is also shifting. Given the rapidly shifting healthcare landscape, the increased regulatory requirements, and the wide variety of incentive models in existence, creating a strategic and compliant process for compensating physicians is extremely important.  Wondering what you should be thinking in regard to physician compensation?  Learn from three expert panelists that will address current and emerging trends for physician compensation, what can and can’t be offered as part of an incentive or benefits package, what strategies may be employed to link incentives to organizational goals and how to negotiate with potential physician candidates and how to negotiate if you are a candidate for a position.  
With over 20 years of experience, Mr. Barker has redesigned physician and advanced practice compensation plans to align organizational goals and strategies with the goals, strategies and needs of individual physicians.  Mr. Barkerwill share examples of current compensation models as well as the emerging trends in physician compensation and provide practical tips for implementing new mechanisms for physician compensation in your practice. 
Representing employees and employers in diverse employment matter in the health care and other sectors, including discrimination, sexual harassment, reductions in force, reasonable accommodation, and wage and hour claims, Ms. Samuels will focus on the role and nature of negotiating physician contracts. To round out the panel, Mr. Passon will discuss strategies for aligning physician’s risk-based  compensation contracts with the organization’s mission, vision, and values based on his extensive experience in financial operations, mergers and acquisitions, technology innovation, and traditional consulting.
