Hospitals and health systems that are tax-supported, non-profit, rural and/or otherwise part of the public safety-net face many of the same challenges as other hospitals in the transition to accountable and coordinated care. However, they also have some different challenges and issues arising from the specific regulatory scheme in which they operate and the patient populations, capital restrictions and other restrictions and obligations that they must navigate. This three-part webinar series will focus on the emerging legal, regulatory and related operational concerns for these hospitals and health systems as they transition to integrated, accountable and coordinated care models. The webinar series will be a collaboration with the In-House Counsel, Business Law and Governance, Tax and Finance, Health Information Technology, Antitrust and Academic Medical Centers Practice Groups, as well Enterprise Risk Management Task Forces.

  • Crisis or Opportunity?: Hospitals Serving Special Populations and the Legal Challenges of Integrated, Accountable and Coordinated Care Part I: Convergence and Collaboration - On Demand Recording

    This session will explore the historical and emerging legal and regulatory obstacles for public, not-for-profit, rural and/or safety net hospitals and health systems that are looking to coordinate or integrate care through partnerships, affiliations, alliances or acquisitions. Topics will include: (i) special capital-related restrictions for tax-supported and not-for-profit entities, including restrictions related to bond financing, public or charitable mission and private inurement; (ii) unique and heightened contracting risks for some types of health systems from state and Federal taxation, public integrity and payor fraud and abuse laws; and (iii) the sometimes-dueling obligations of transparency, collaboration and antitrust law.
