Key Legal Considerations for Operating in A Shared Risk, Population Health Management Environment
The U.S. Healthcare Industry is dynamic, complex and evolving. It is gradually transitioning away from a traditional fee-for-service model to one that incorporates value into the payment equation with the objectives of managing populations of health and creating better patient outcomes in a cost efficient manner. As hospitals are under pressure to adjust to the new payment models created by insurers and Medicare, they have to respond to the new environment of Shared Risk, Accountable Care and Pay for Value. No one can stay static and organizations are exploring how to partner and work together to remove the barriers that have until now prevented hospitals, doctors and other health care providers from moving to alternative, more cost effective healthcare delivery systems. Healthcare is one of the most highly regulated industries. In 2015, the government reported a significant number of new False Claims Act (FCA) actions and approximately $3.5 billion in FCA judgements and settlements. It was also a record-breaking year for whistleblower recoveries in non-intervened FCA cases. Furthermore, as regulations are changed, updated or added to on a regular basis, healthcare providers and in particular their legal departments need the agility to modify current practices and constantly navigate new waters.
The 2017 Healthcare Law & Compliance Institute has been designed by Healthcare GCs for Healthcare GCs. The agenda recognizes the importance of keeping abreast of current legal developments in a highly regulated and rapidly evolving environment and over the course of two and a half days, you will accomplish a great deal, digging into a range of highly relevant and timely topics, and gleaning actual pragmatic tips and best practices from your peers.
