  • 2018 Telemedicine Webinar Series, Part III - On Demand Recording

    Recorded On: 10/24/2018

    For years, the biggest question around telemedicine has been: “But how can we get paid?” However, as more and more reimbursement pathways become available, both from government programs and commercial payors, providing telemedicine services is increasingly becoming profitable. But with more reimbursement opportunities comes more regulatory risk. In this webinar, we will explore the current telemedicine reimbursement landscape, including Medicare reimbursement rules, fraud & abuse considerations, state parity laws, typical and not-so-typical telemedicine billing models, applicable rules regarding reassignment of benefits, and coding for telemedicine services.

    Healthcare providers and organizations are contracting with vendors and  telemedicine solution providers to improve the quality of care, expand access to knowledge to colleagues, care to patients, and to promote efficiency in care coordination. The definition and scope of drafting and negotiating telemedicine technology and services agreements is key in implementing a complete solution that includes a broad array of equipment and services ranging from a simple clinical consultation to remote patient monitoring.  As telemedicine solutions are integrated into the everyday practice of medicine, healthcare legal counsel will find value in drafting and negotiating telemedicine agreements with considerations from all angles: provider organizations, vendors, and health systems  From cybersecurity to valuation of telemedicine technology solutions attorneys should be aware of applicable regulatory issues and gain the foresight to draft and negotiate a telemedicine agreement to include key terms that will support their client’s business goals including cybersecurity, intellectual property, valuation of services/technology and risk mitigation.

  • 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.

  • No-Poaching and Non-Competes: What General Counsel and Human Resource Professionals Need to Know About Antitrust and Employment Issues - On Demand Recording

    Recorded On: 10/11/2018

    Healthcare and other industries have seen an increased focus on so-called "no-poach" agreements, along with other agreements among employers that are alleged to limit or fix wages or other terms of employment.

    Time: 90 minutes
    Session Format: On Demand Recording
    CLE Credit Available:  No

    For on-demand webinar recordings, streaming access is available for 12-months from the date of the live webinar.  After 12-months, on-demand webinar recordings are available through the AHLA Health Law Archive.

    Healthcare and other industries have seen an increased focus on so-called "no-poach" agreements, along with other agreements that are alleged to limit or fix wages or other terms of employment. The DOJ and FTC have published guidance and are bringing cases against alleged no-poach agreements, with the DOJ stating their intent to bring criminal prosecutions in the future. State AGs, too, are becoming active and a coalition of states are currently investigating alleged no-poach agreements in the restaurant industry. Private plaintiffs are also taking action with a court recently certifying a class in a case alleging a no-poach agreement affected the medical staff of two academic medical systems. 

    Before the current focus on no-poach agreements, antitrust and employment issues were a concern. Physicians and other health care workers are very familiar with restrictive covenants like non-competition agreements, but have found that many states no longer enforce them. Currently legislation is pending in Congress that aims to fundamentally change the application of antitrust law to employment issues. 

    How do employers (and employees) find the antitrust line between lawful and unlawful restrictive covenants affecting employment? Will the DOJ go after healthcare providers and others in the healthcare industry on a criminal basis? What are some best practices and practical advice to avoid antitrust risks in employee and HR matters? 

    On this webinar, a panel of government, private-practice, and in-house practitioners will discuss the current state of the enforcement landscape, help answer these questions, and provide practical guidance.
