Program Description

View the Brochure

Every year, the Annual Meeting offers an array of health law topics that will appeal to anyone practicing in this area – this year is no different! Offering the most current information and analysis of myriad legal issues the health care industry is facing in a thoughtful, practical solution-oriented way, you will not want to miss the Annual Meeting. The Annual Meeting provides a forum for networking and interaction with colleagues, friends, and family as well as an outstanding educational event.

The planning committee has designed a program rich with content and dynamic speakers. Roni Zeiger, MD, practicing physician, former Chief Strategist at Google, and Founder/CEO of Smart Patients is this year’s keynote speaker! He will discuss the future of health care and the innovations we are seeing and can expect to see that will change the way we deliver and receive health care. There will be in-depth breakout 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. Some of the sessions included are:

  • Hospital and Health Plan Exemption–Meeting Expectations, Managing Threats
  • Fusion Reaction: Political, Business, and Legal Realities Collide as Community Hospitals Look to Partner for the Future
  • Credentialing Issues in Telemedicine
  • Managing Behavioral Health Patients in the Emergency Department: Risks, Challenges, and Solutions
  • Potholes along the Golden Gate Bridge: Legal Ethics in Inside Counsel / Outside Counsel Interactions
  • Preparing to Accept Downstream Risk: What CINs and ACOs Should Be Doing Now

The program will begin at 8:00 am on Monday, June 26 and end at 11:45 am on Wednesday, June 28.
