First few Article Sentences
Disputes between health care providers and physicians are often predictable. Many of these disputes can be avoided through the use of a well-crafted employment agreement. For providers, a solid agreement can reduce the risk of bringing a new physician into a practice. It can also improve morale and motivation by clearly communicating rights and responsibilities. For physicians, a clear agreement reduces the uncertainty involved with taking a position on blind faith, and makes it easier to give up a current position or to choose between competing offers, particularly when relocation is required.
