Long Term Care and the Law 

February 27-29, 2012
Arizona Biltmore, A Waldorf Astoria Hotel
Phoenix, AZ
Principle Valuation LLC and Plante Moran have provided sponsorship in support of this program.

Program Description
AHLA’s 2012 LTC and the Law program includes an individual educational track for nursing facility, assisted living and home health attorneys and providers.  The Program Planning Committee has made a concentrated effort to include sessions with practical information useful to providers, as well as those who represent them in areas of Medicare, Medicaid, Enforcement, Fraud, Diversification, Transactions, Risk Management, etc.  Each track also includes “hot topic” issues such as predictive modeling, physician integration, Accountable Care Organizations (ACOs), bundling, social media, increasing patient acuity, patient mental health issues to only mention a few.  During the opening general session, a CEO panel with Mark Parkinson (American Health Care Association and National Center for Assisted Living), Richard Grimes (Assisted Living Federation of America), Larry Minnix (Leading Age) and Val Halamandaris (National Association for Home Care & Hospice) will discuss how providers are responding to the current operating and regulatory challenges arising from both health care reform and the current market place.  Further, Dr. Robyn Stone also will join us during the opening session to talk about the future of long term care. 

Special thanks to the following associations for their support of the program: LeadingAge, AHCA, ALFA, NCAL, ASHA, AQNHC and NAHC
