Make plans to join us in DC - there is no better time or place for AHLA’s Annual Meeting this year. We are pleased to announce that the Annual Meeting will be highlighted by a Keynote Address by Ezekiel Emmanuel, MD. The Supreme Court is expected to announce its decision in King v. Burwell in late June, and the past year’s governmental activity, including increasing legislative, regulatory, and enforcement activity in Washington is deeply affecting the health care industry. We can be certain to see only more changes on the horizon for health care-related business, regardless of the outcome of the Supreme Court case, and our clients will continue to rely on us to advise them on the legal and operational challenges they face. For these reasons and more, you will not want to miss the opportunity to join your colleagues for the AHLA In-House Counsel Program and Annual Meeting from June 28-July 1.

The planning committee has designed a program rich with content and dynamic speakers, offering the most current information and analysis of myriad legal issues the health care industry is facing. There will be sessions on transactional issues, reimbursement, tax, privacy and security, antitrust, fraud and compliance, labor and employment, and more. Whether you represent physicians, payers, hospitals and health systems, long term care providers, academic medical centers, or life sciences companies, there are sessions that will address the issues your clients are facing.

The program will kick-off Sunday, June 28, at 5:00 pm with a Welcome Reception for all attendees. Sessions will end on Wednesday, July 1 at 3:45 pm.

Program Description

View the Brochure

This one-day program is designed to address the unique issues faced by in-house counsel. Breakout sessions will focus on practical, hands-on ways to function in these challenging day-to-day work roles and responsibilities of in-house counsel lawyers.

This year’s In-House Counsel Program planning committee and faculty will explore the question - What’s keeping the nation’s in-house health care counsel up at night? This year’s topic selection was informed by a special survey conducted by AHLA and each session is designed to include the perspective of in-house counsel who have “in the trenches” experience in the particular subject matter. Attendees also will have an opportunity to connect with colleagues who face similar issues in advising clients to exchange experiences, ideas and practices from their own organizations. This year’s keynote address will be delivered by Helen Burstin, M.D., Chief Scientific Officer of the National Quality Forum (NQF). Dr. Burstin will share her views on the NQF’s Choosing Wisely campaign and its implications for the health care industry, how the activities of the NQF intersect and coordinate with the activities of other quality-focused organizations and initiatives, and meaningful performance measurement to assess quality of care.

HealthCare Appraisers, Inc. has provided sponsorship in support of this program and the In-House Counsel Practice Group Luncheon
