NASHVILLE, Tenn., April 14 /PRNewswire/ -- Aegis Health Group, one of the healthcare industry's leading business development organizations, is sponsoring a complimentary Webinar to help hospital executives with one of their top challenges: strong physician relationships. The hour-long Webinar, "Managing Physician Issues to Increase Alignment and Decrease Barriers to Access," will begin at 11 a.m. CDT on April 21. Participants must pre-register online at www.aegisgroup.com/webinar.

This Webinar, the second in a series of quarterly online presentations sponsored by Aegis, will provide practical, real-world solutions to help hospitals enhance their physician relationships. The content is targeted toward hospital-based physician liaisons, business development leaders and medical staff service leaders. "Managing Physician Issues to Increase Alignment and Decrease Barriers to Access" will show participants how to build trust with physicians and identify issues that prevent alignment and hinder increased utilization. The discussion will focus on how hospital leaders can gain buy-in internally to support physician feedback and provide prompt issue resolution.

"Despite the rise of consumerism in healthcare, doctors continue to be the primary influencer of where patients receive care, which means hospitals must create synergistic relationships with their physicians or risk losing referrals to a competing hospital," said Henry Ross, CEO of Aegis Health Group. "With the increased demands being put on physicians, it's more important than ever that hospital leaders find ways to support doctors' personal and professional needs."

Aegis' thought paper, "Physician Relationship Management: Ensuring the Stability and Vitality of Today's Hospitals," also offers extensive insight into physician relationship management challenges, opportunities and solutions. The complimentary paper is available at http://www.aegisgroup.com.
