More Than A Valuation

The development of the tool is driven by the healthcare organization’s need to quickly assess new
physician recruitment offers, renewals of existing contracts, and various other compensation
arrangements with healthcare providers. Specifically, the purpose of the calculator is:


Identify a maximum threshold/cap for compensation, based on Fair Market Value and Commercial Reasonableness requirements for the subject specialty.


Provide a printable valuation document/opinion which can be utilized for compliance and contract management documentation.


Identify compensation arrangements which may require a further review through either a consult with
the valuation team or an expanded valuation report.
