     eligibility to participate.

     location of your organization? If your organization has multiple sites, choose the
     option that represents the location with the largest number of full-time-equivalent
     (FTE) physicians. (Select only one)
     Rural/Nonmetropolitan (fewer than 5,000) - The community in which the practice is located is
     located outside of a "metropolitan statistical area" (MSA), as defined by the United States Office of
     Management and Budget, and has a population less than 5,000.

     or Census Bureau defined urbanized area with a population of 500,001 to 1,000,000.
     Metropolitan (more than 1,000,000) - The community in which the practice is located is a "primary

        Definitions for Active Searches Matrix
        The matrix requests information for all active searches open during the 12-month reporting period.
        Instructions for completing columns 1 through 15 in the matrix follow.

        Search Tracking Code
Col 1 Active Searches Matrix
        Indicate your organization’s internal tracking number for this search. This number may be numeric,
        alpha or a combination of both and may be up to six digits long. This number will make it easier to
        refer to your search benchmarks. If you do not have a unique identifier, create a series of letters
        and numbers such as 12345x.


        Practice Type
Col 2 Active Searches Matrix
        Select one practice type that best describes the location of the search from the drop-down list box
        (in column 2) on the Active Searches Matrix worksheet of the questionnaire. Place that
        corresponding code in column 2. The numbers by the practice type descriptions correspond to the
        practice types in the drop-down list on the questionnaire.
        1 - Solo practice: A medical practice where there is only one “solo” physician within the practice.
        2 - Single specialty: A medical practice that focuses its clinical work in one specialty. The
        determining factor for classifying the type of specialty is the focus of clinical work and not
        necessarily the specialties of the physicians in the practice. For example, a single-specialty
        neurosurgery practice may include a neurologist and a radiologist.
        3 - Multispecialty: A medical practice that consists of physicians practicing in different specialties
        that could include more than one primary care specialty and a surgical specialty such as
        obstetrics/gynecology.
        4 - Hospital department practice: A medical practice that consists of physicians practicing in a
        hospital that could include more than one primary care specialty and a surgical specialty.
        5 - Academic medical center: Clinicians from the medical group practice hold nontenure
        appointments on a medical school faculty and/or are part of a health system that is associated with
        a medical school that grants a MD degree; and the practice has a legal standing with a medical
        school, faculty practice plan or clinical science department.
        6 - Rural health clinic: A clinic that is located in an area that is designated both by the Bureau of
        the Census as rural and by the Secretary of DHHS as medically underserved.
        7 - Critical access hospital: A hospital furnishing 24-hour emergency care services located in a
        rural area; provides no more than 25 inpatient acute care beds; is located either more than 35
        miles from the nearest hospital or more than 15 miles in areas with mountainous terrain or only
        secondary roads; or is State certified as of December 31, 2005 as a “necessary provider” of health
        care services to residents in the area.
        8 - Retail health clinic: Also known as "convenient care clinics", located in retail stores,
        supermarkets and pharmacies that provide medical services for commonplace illnesses. Most retail
        clinics are typically staffed by nonphysician providers (nurse practitioners, physician assistants),
        but they may also be staffed with physicians.
Col 3 Active Searches Matrix
        Majority Owner
        Select the type of ownership that represents at least 51% or majority control over the entity from
        the drop-down list box (in column 3) on the Active Searches Matrix worksheet of the questionnaire.
        Place that corresponding code in column 3. The numbers by the majority owner descriptions
        correspond to the majority owners in the drop-down list on the questionnaire. If the position
        specialty is not listed in the drop-down, enter the corresponding “Other” code in column 3 and
        describe the majority owner in column 3T.
        1 - Government: A governmental organization at the federal, state or local level. Government
        funding is not a sufficient criterion. Government ownership is the key factor. An example would be
        a medical clinic at a federal, state or county correctional facility.

        2 - Hospital/integrated delivery system (IDS): An IDS is a network of organizations that provide
        or coordinate and arrange for the provision of a continuum of health care services to consumers
        and are willing to be held clinically and fiscally responsible for the outcomes and the health status
        of the populations served. Generally consisting of hospitals, physician groups, health plans, home
        health agencies, hospices, skilled nursing facilities, or other provider entities, these networks may
        be built through “virtual” integration processes encompassing contractual arrangements and
        strategic alliances as well as through direct ownership. A hospital is an inpatient facility that
        admits patients for overnight stays, incurs nursing care costs and generates bed-day revenues.

        3 - Insurance company or health maintenance organization (HMO): An insurance company is
        an organization that indemnifies an insured party against a specified loss in return for premiums
        paid, as stipulated by a contract. An HMO is an insurance company that accepts responsibility for
        providing and delivering a predetermined set of comprehensive health maintenance and treatment
        services to a voluntarily enrolled population for a negotiated and fixed periodic premium.

        4 - MSO or PPMC: An MSO is an entity organized to provide various forms of practice
        management and administrative support services to health care providers. These services may
        include centralized billing and collections services, management information services and other
        components of the managed care infrastructure. MSOs do not actually deliver health care services.
        MSOs may be jointly or solely owned and sponsored by physicians, hospitals or other parties.
        Some MSOs also purchase assets of affiliated physicians and enter into long-term management
        service arrangements with a provider network. Some expand their ownership base by involving
        outside investors to help capitalize the development of such practice infrastructure. PPMCs are
        usually publicly held or entrepreneurial directed enterprises that acquire total or partial ownership
        interests in physician organizations. PPMCs are a type of MSO, however the motivations, goals,
        strategies, and structures arising from their unequivocal ownership character - development of
        growth and profits for their investors, not for participating providers — differentiate them from other
        MSO models.
        5 - Physicians: Any doctor of medicine (MD) or doctor of osteopathy (DO) who is duly licensed
        and qualified under the law of jurisdiction in which treatment is received.
        6 - University or medical school: A university is an institution of higher learning with teaching and
        research facilities comprising undergraduate, graduate and professional schools. A medical school
        is an institution that trains physicians and awards medical and osteopathic degrees.
        7 - Other: Describe the majority owner in the column 3T.

         to the majority owners in the drop-down list on the questionnaire.
         1 - Rural/Nonmetropolitan (fewer than 5,000) - The community in which the practice is located is
