Dermatologists, particularly those in solo and smaller group practices, must assess whether they can remain viable in the evolving environment, and if not, devise an approach to ensure long-term practice viability. It  is  important  to  understand  the  business and legal implications inherent with the decision to enter into any new financial arrangement. This toolkit is a starting point to help dermatologists as they work with their legal and business advisors to achieve their goals.
