Economic, political and regulatory forces, coupled with new innovations, continue to change the delivery and payment of healthcare.  These changes have caused physician practices and community hospitals to consolidate and/or diversify, forming large “super” groups or health systems that are transforming the delivery of care through clinical integration. Additionally, new government payment models, the push by private insurers to share risk, and other market conditions continue to shift physicians, hospitals and other healthcare providers away from traditional fee-for-service reimbursement into value-based payment models. Technology and innovation in the healthcare industry also continues to change the way healthcare services are delivered and how data is usedThe net result is that physicians and other healthcare providers must navigate an evolving landscape of emerging legal risks and challenges to their business models.  

This program brings together physicians, healthcare legal experts, government officials, insurer representatives, and others, who will provide the tools, educational materials, and strategies to improve patient care and healthcare delivery.

Sessions will cover key topics, including new payment models, compliance issues, enforcement trends, contracting, tips for managing transactions, telemedicine, cybersecurity, the implications of new technologies, payor and medical staff disputes, and workplace issues for physicians. Speakers will share practical, and viable improvement strategies to help you work more efficiently while restoring your sense of purpose.

Global Learning Objectives
The following sessions will address legal and clinical topics of importance to physicians:

  • Developments in the use of machine learning and artificial intelligence in healthcare.
  • Recent payment models and initiatives in the insurance marketplace and how they affect payor alignment and marketplace strategies.
  • Key policies for implementing clinical integration.
  • Evaluation of physician and vendor relationships.
  • Important workplace issues, including structuring physician compensation arrangements, particularly in the context of value-based arrangements, contract negotiation and compensation, harassment, reputation management and financial planning.
  • Arbitration of managed care reimbursement issues and resolving litigated health insurance claims.
  • Current trends in False Claims Act cases and practical, real-world ideas for physicians to address and prevent False Claims Act exposure.
  • Minimizing risks in prescribing controlled substances and discussing litigation trends emerging from the opioid epidemic.
  • Insight and practical advice on how to treat a client or patient struggling with addiction while offering a front-row seat to the state of current and proposed public policy on addiction issues.
  • Implementation and compliance challenges related to the use of electronic health records (EHRs).
  • Security and privacy of patients’ data.
  • Practical implications of healthcare fraud and abuse laws, including Stark Law and the Anti-Kickback Act.
  • Challenges presented by advances in technology that may result in professional responsibility concerns for both physicians and attorneys.
