  • Cutting Edge Issues and Trends in Health Care Fair Market Value, Part III: Advanced Practice Providers – How the COVID-19 Pandemic Changed the Utilization and Deployment of APPs

    Includes a Live Web Event on 06/18/2020 at 2:00 PM (EDT)

    Historically physicians were the sole clinical provider for most patients across the country; however, over the past few decades nurse practitioners, nurse midwives, nurse anesthetists, and physician assistants (“Advanced Practice Providers or APPs”) have expanded the concept of a provider. The COVID-19 pandemic required health systems across the country to deploy APPs in various ways and the governments around the country waived many restrictions around APPs. This webinar will focus those concepts including strategies around compensation of these individuals with a focus on long term implications for effective utilization of APPs.

  • Value-Based Payments in Public and Not-for-Profit Hospitals in the Age of COVID-19

    Includes a Live Web Event on 06/17/2020 at 2:00 PM (EDT)

    Value based payments have changed the nature and types of arrangements and transactions between providers. The changes have included increases in risk-based contracting and in alignment strategies that rely on payment principles that were previously less common, such as gainsharing, capitation and subsidization. Hospitals and health systems that are tax supported, not-for-profit or otherwise serve the social safety net have special considerations when structuring and entering into new types of risk and payment arrangements. These special considerations are layered on a complex patchwork of more general laws and considerations that affect all hospitals and health systems. Our panel of experts will identify and discuss the complex and expanding scope of considerations in the context of the new hospital realities created by COVID-19.

    Health Care Transactions Manual: Understanding the Consequences of the Health Care Deal

    image

    Health care transactions pose unique and complex legal questions arising from intense federal and state regulation and enforcement. This new Manual is the ideal guide for gaining an understanding of the legal landscape, and for managing the risks involved in structuring health care deals.

    Critical Insight for Attorneys and Other Stakeholders

    What makes sense in the business world does not always make sense in the health care world, and this publication is your key for knowing the difference and avoiding potential pitfalls. The Manual will help you understand nuances such as:

    • When seemingly straightforward business terms can veer toward health care fraud and abuse
    • How health care organization and/or management structure can impact the deal
    • The need to comply with both non-disclosure terms and federal and state privacy laws when conducting due diligence
    • How increased collaboration between health care entities may give raise to antitrust issues
    • How tax-exempt status may be impacted in the course of a deal between exempt and non-exempt entities
    • The need to consider state and federal environmental implications as they relate to radioactive materials used in patient care
    • And much more

    Practical Guidance, Time Saving Tools, and Exhibits

    With contributions from more than a dozen attorney practitioners, the Manual provides invaluable practical guidance covering everything from the transactional basics to deep dive discussions for negotiating complicated deals. 

    The book also contains 22 exhibits including: helpful checklists, downloadable sample documents, contractual language, clauses, and more.

  • Fraud and Abuse in the Age of Coronavirus: Current and Future Federal Criminal and Civil Enforcement Actions

    Includes a Live Web Event on 06/10/2020 at 2:00 PM (EDT)

    The Federal government stimulus in response to the Coronavirus pandemic will lead to a significant flow of federal money to many industries, including health care. We know from past federal stimulus efforts that the risk of fraud and abuse is high, and the federal government is taking proactive measures to combat fraud and abuse resulting from the Coronavirus pandemic response. At the same time, the regulations concerning the stimulus money and guidance related to the Stark blanket waivers and other regulatory guidance is evolving and open to interpretation. Our speakers will cover the potential criminal and civil exposures, the ongoing government response to monitor and pursue fraud and abuse, and guidance for health care entities who are working in this quickly changing regulatory environment. The panel will also discuss DOJ's focus on investigating and prosecuting efforts to take advantage of the pandemic by selling fraudulent services and treatments.

  • Crisis or Opportunity?: Hospitals Serving Special Populations and the Legal Challenges of Integrated, Accountable, and Coordinated Care Part II: Data or Bust

    Includes a Live Web Event on 06/04/2020 at 2:00 PM (EDT)

    Access to appropriate data, technology, and analytics are pivotal to a hospital or health system achieving financial success in the era of value-based payment. Likewise, the ability to attract professional talent and offer both competitive pricing and positive patient experiences and outcomes will be key to ensuring financial viability as we enter an unprecedented age of health care transparency, accountability, and consumerism. For hospitals and health systems that serve a charitable or public mission or are otherwise part of the public health safety net, the common challenges of securing appropriate talent, technology, and patient experience may be exacerbated by the regulatory and financial realities in which they operate, including the obligations of their public or charitable mission, the related heightened compliance risks that come with serving large Medicare and/or Medicaid populations, and the potential stumbling blocks of public purchasing and financing restrictions. Our panel will provide case studies and discuss strategies and solutions for regulatory challenges related to contracting for data, technology, telemedicine, professional staff, and services.

     The Law of Digital Health

    image

    Digital Health is a highly dynamic ecosystem of technological innovation with profound effects on all facets of health care. The key components of today’s Digital Health are:

    • Electronic health records and other health information technology;
    • Big data and data analytics;
    • Telemedicine;
    • Mobile personal engagement tools.

    This book explains how, taken together, these developments transform the provider-patient relationship, change the way research is conducted, trigger privacy and security concerns, alter relationships with health plans, and give rise to a new generation of innovation. Digital Health participants face an outdated and ambiguous legal and regulatory framework and enforcement by state and federal regulatory agencies, including:

    • State attorneys general; 
    • State licensure and accreditation agencies; 
    • Food and Drug Administration; Federal Trade Commission;
    • Federal Communications Commission; 
    • Department of Health and Human Services’ Offices of Civil Rights, Human Research Protection, and Inspector General—among others.

    This book provides both the fundamental understanding and tactical foresight you need to develop a comprehensive Digital Health strategy.

    • For attorneys licensed in states in which live distance learning programs are approved and AHLA does not possess approved provider/sponsor status: participants are able to apply directly to their state accrediting body for approval for and accreditation of AHLA-sponsored webinars. The application and agenda are available for download during the live event and any time thereafter; certificates of completion are made available immediately following the webinar upon completion of the course evaluation.
    • In states in which live distance learning programs are not approved, it is still possible to obtain CLE credit by applying directly to the state's accrediting body for “self-study" credit where applicable.

    Other, Non-CLE Credits

    AHLA webinars are only presumptively approved for CLE credits unless otherwise stated. To obtain other credit types (Continuing Professional Education, Compliance Certification Board, Nursing Home Administrator, etc.) participants may apply directly their desired licensing body, but approval is not guaranteed and is at the discretion of said licensing body and subject to its rules and regulations.

    For additional information about Distance Learning-related credits, please email the Practice Groups staff at dl@healthlawyers.org.
