  • The Intersection of Public Health and Healthcare in the 21st Century: Hot Topics and Practice Tips, All Parts - On Demand Recording

    The webinar series aims to provide updates on state and federal law, highlight trends and distinctions in state law, and each webinar will offer practical perspectives and tips for lawyers representing hospitals, public health departments, and other health system partners.

    Time (All Sessions): 90 minutes
    Sessions Format: On Demand Recording

    During the 20th century, the historic emphasis of public health on protecting populations from infectious disease and environmental threats expanded to include the prevention and reduction of chronic disease through behavior and lifestyle interventions. As we move forward into the 21st century, new challenges have emerged that have further expanded the work of those in public heath, serve to highlight the critical intersection between public health and health care, and require new and innovative strategies and legal approaches. 

    For example, as we move into the next frontier in electronic health records, and as the nation moves away from the fee-for-service model, an understanding of the state and federal legal framework for improved interoperability and data sharing become critical. The expanded deployment of telecommunications, and remote diagnostic technology, have created more options for how individuals receive healthcare, requiring competency in the laws and legal frameworks supporting the growing field of telemedicine. And, the US is currently in the midst of a devastating opioid misuse epidemic that has resulted in the enactment of a complex set of federal and state laws.

    CDC's Public Health Law Program and the American Health Lawyers Association announce a 3-part series of webinars series will explore three hot topics at the intersection of public health and health care law in the 21st century: data sharing, telemedicine, and the opioid crisis. The webinar series aims to provide updates on state and federal law, highlight trends and distinctions in state law, and each webinar will offer practical perspectives and tips for lawyers representing hospitals, public health departments, and other health system partners.

  • Spot the Antitrust Issue: An Interactive Guide to Identifying and Mitigating Antitrust Risk in a Changing Healthcare Landscape - On Demand Recording

    Recorded On: 08/14/2018

    As consolidation, vertical re-alignment, and disruption continue to transform the health care marketplace, the competitive landscape is changing. Providers, health plans, life sciences companies, and other industry participants are evolving their business practices to meet these changes, creating new competitive opportunities and the potential for new competitive risks. It’s more important than ever for trusted legal advisers to spot antitrust issues early to help clients navigate and mitigate potential antitrust risks. This program is geared to general counsel, in-house counsel, and general health care practitioners. It is intended to help practitioners "issue spot" the antitrust issues that may arise in a fast-paced and dynamic healthcare context. This program is designed to facilitate issue-spotting in the context of common business activities, including mergers, acquisitions, joint ventures, and other collaborations; identify potential antitrust problems and tools for avoiding such problems in the context of trade associations and other activities that involve competitors; and examine potential pitfalls and guidance for "dominant firms" in connection with sales and marketing activities.

    On-Demand+CLE Webinars

    On-Demand+CLE webinars are eligible for Continuing Legal Education (CLE) credit and are approved in every state with mandatory CLE requirements for attorneys unless otherwise specified. Please refer to the Distance Learning CLE State Chart for details regarding specific state guidelines.

    On-Demand Webinars

    Offerings designated as “On-Demand" differ from those designated as “On-Demand+CLE" in that they are CLE-ineligible. However, CLE credit may be obtained by applying directly to the attorney's state accrediting body, but approval is not guaranteed and is at the discretion of said accrediting body and subject to its rules and regulations. Please refer to the Distance Learning CLE State for details regarding specific state guidelines.

    Other, Non-CLE Credits

    AHLA On-Demand+CLE webinars are only 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.
