The Antitrust in Health Care program continues its rich quarter-century tradition with this jointly sponsored program. The program brings together an expert faculty made up of the leading government enforcers, private counsel representing both plaintiffs and defendants, and forensic and academic economists to share their insights and offer practical advice and policy recommendations.
With stepped up government enforcement in health care, including the FTC’s recent victory blocking the acquisition by a health system of a medical group in Idaho, antitrust issues posed by the collaboration of providers and payers as they respond to health care reform, and a surge of private antitrust litigation, there have been many important developments since the conference was last held in 2012. We hope to see you this spring to share the most timely and significant information on key antitrust issues affecting the health care industry.
