Affinity Groups are created to facilitate networking opportunities with other Practice Group members who share similar professional interests.
Please note: You must be a member of the Medical Staff, Credentialling, and Peer Review Practice Group or a government, academician, student, or PG 15 member (all-Practice Groups access) to enroll in this Affinity Group.

Task Forces

Task Forces are established for those health law topics that cross over several Practice Groups, and they provide collaborative, substantive resources for the benefit of the sponsoring Practice Groups' members.
Please note: You must be a member of the Medical Staff, Credentialling, and Peer Review Practice Group one of the other sponsoring Practice Groups to receive benefits produced by these Task Forces.
 
  • Accountable Care Organization Task Force
    The Accountable Care Organization (ACO) Task Force monitors and evaluates the implementing statutes, regulations, cases, and secondary materials concerning ACOs. It provides written materials, webinars, and in-person educational activities to assist AHLA's members to implement ACOs and comply with ACO laws and rules. Since the ACO subject matter is so broad, and impacts the missions and interests of so many Practice Groups, the ACO Task Force is a multi-disciplinary/multi-group entity, and focuses its efforts on the production of a coherent and effective line of ACO-related educational materials using a variety of media and employing AHLA’s vast resources.
 
  • Health Care Reform Educational Task Force
    The Health Care Reform Educational Task Force serves as a single key point-of-contact for the Association membership for institutional resources regarding comprehensive health care reform initiatives at the state and federal levels. The Task Force works to educate AHLA members on proposed health care reform initiatives as well as report on ongoing experiences with recently enacted reform initiatives.
