Emergency Preparedness Toolkit
— Published on May 4, 2010

When an emergency hits a hospital, administrators often turn to their lawyers as issues arise in providing care during an emergency. This Emergency Preparedness Toolkit (Toolkit) is designed as a complement to AHLA’s Emergency Preparedness Response & Recovery Checklist: Beyond the Emergency Management Plan by providing a one-stop resource of emergency preparedness form policies, procedures, links, articles, sample contract language, and legal summary memoranda to assist healthcare attorneys, administrators, and providers in preparing for and responding to the issues that arise during an emergency.

​Affinity Groups

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 Life Science Practice Group to enroll in these Affinity Groups.

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.
  • Accountable Care Organization (ACO) Task Force
    The Task Force will monitor and evaluate the implementing statutes, regulations, cases, and secondary materials concerning ACOs. The Task Force will develop a strategic plan and a work plan to provide 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 will be a multi-disciplinary/multi-group entity, and will focus 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.
  •  
  • Healthcare Reform Educational Task Force
    The Task Force serves as a single key point-of-contact for the Association membership for institutional resources regarding comprehensive healthcare reform initiatives at the state and federal levels. The Task Force works to educate AHLA members on proposed healthcare reform initiatives as well as report on ongoing experiences with recently enacted reform initiatives.
