  • Lessons from Hahnemann University Hospital Webinar Series - All Parts

    A recurring and troubling theme in news headlines is that hospitals—rural and safety net hospitals, in particular-- are in distress. They are filing for bankruptcy and closing their doors at an alarming rate. Health care news sources publish almost daily reports of hospital bankruptcies and closures, including ongoing coverage of high-profile cases such as that of Hahnemann University Hospital, a 170-year old not-for-profit safety net hospital and academic medical center in Center City Philadelphia, which announced its impending closure in spring of 2019 and has faced various legal woes since.

    Session Dates: March 10 and March 24
    Time (All Sessions): 2:00-3:30 PM Eastern (90 minutes) 
    Sessions Format: Live Webinars

    A recurring and troubling theme in news headlines is that a number of hospitals—rural and safety net hospitals, in particular-- are in distress. Hahnemann University Hospital, which entered bankruptcy in June 2019 and was scheduled to close September 6, is therefore not unique in its general situation, but the public nature of its struggles make it an interesting case study in the number and complexity of legal issues that may need to be addressed by hospitals on the brink. This webinar series uses Hahnemann as a case study and will address legal and operational issues in five general focus areas: 

    1.  Obligations, restrictions and recent changes contributing to safety net providers in distress; 
    2.  Daily operational and legal decisions when a hospital is on the brink of failure, including procurement and employment questions; 
    3.  Issues related to being an academic medical center (what counsel needs to know when an academic medical center is in distress or closing), including duties to residents, faculty physicians and a partner medical school; 
    4.  Labor and employment issues in a hospital wind-down, including notice, pay, and ERISA obligations; and 
    5.  Potential director and officer liability when a hospital is in trouble, including the extent and limits of the business judgment rule

    Representing Hospitals and Health Systems Handbook

    Order Today

    The tremendous growth of hospitals and health systems in the United States was spurred on after World War Two with passage of the Hill-Burton Act, which funded the construction of new facilities, and the Social Security Act of 1965, which established Medicare and Medicaid and greatly expanded the number of people who have some form of health insurance. The universe of hospitals and health systems began to grow and evolve, and continues to do so. This Handbook examines the multitude of issues that those who represent hospitals and health system need to be informed about but will also be a critical guide for those who represent physicians, diagnostic imaging facilities, other health care facilities, as well as financial institutions.

    Coverage Includes:

    •  Establishment of facilities;
    • State licensing requirements;
    • Certification process;
    • Payment methodologies;
    • State and Federal fraud and abuse regulations; and
    • Operational issues, including patient relations, privacy, grievance rights, and consent to treatment

    All health attorneys and others in the health care field who need to understand the intricacies and complexities of hospitals and health systems will find Representing Hospitals and Health Systems Handbook, First Edition an indispensable resource.

    False Claims Act & The Health Care Industry: Counseling & Litigation

    Order Today!

    This Third Edition of False Claims Act & the Health Care Industry has been prepared in response to False Claims Act (FCA) amendments, the surge of false claims litigation and recoveries, and the rapidly developing case law. It is intended to help health care lawyers, accountants, executives, and other professionals assess a company’s potential exposure to false claims liability and reform company practices to reduce the risk of liability by providing a comprehensive analysis of the FCA and its interpretation. This new edition analyzes legislative changes to:

    • The FCA’s reverse false claims provision; 
    • The FCA’s whistleblower retaliation provision; and
    • The FCA’s public disclosure bar.

    In the wake of these changes, courts across the country, including the United States Supreme Court, have issued significant decisions that impact the operation of health care businesses. This book analyzes those decisions, addressing:

    • Defenses that the defendant’s claim is not “false;”  
    • Defenses that the defendant did not “know” that the claim or statement is “false;” 
    • Defenses that the defendant’s knowingly false claims or statements are not “material” to the government’s determination to pay; 
    • The status of actions where the relator’s action repeats public information;  
    • And more.

    The “Listen with a Colleague" option allows multiple registrants from the same organization and location to participate in the webinar at a discounted rate. It may ONLY be used if at least one person from your organization and location has registered at the regular/full webinar registration rate. Please note that those who register under the reduced “Listen with a Colleague" rate must access the webinar from the same location and computer as the full-priced registrant they are registered under.

    The “Listen with a Colleague" option is continuing legal education (CLE) credit-eligible. In order to obtain a certificate of completion for submission to a state CLE accrediting body, those registered under this option must obtain the attendance verification code—which will be displayed at a random time during the webinar—and enter that code under “Verification Code for Live Webinar" section of the webinar description webpage. Please note that each registrant must submit a complete evaluation from their individual accounts to obtain a certificate of completion.

    Corporate Practice of Medicine (CPOM) application is far from simple, and adoption and enforcement vary by state. States adopt various models—with exceptions—and others eliminate the prohibition completely, while some states have CPOM prohibitions that are not enforced.

    In the latest edition of this popular guide, the authors have expanded coverage to include an even broader range of health care professionals.  You will find the latest information on practice restrictions by state as they relate to: behavioral health providers, chiropractors, optometrists, and more.

    A ROADMAP OF STATE CPOM MODELS
    CPOM researchers typically need to review a tangled web of statutes, regulations, case law, and attorney general or agency opinions to gain useful insight. The authors have provided a time-saving roadmap to help you:

    • Learn which model of the doctrine a specific state follows
    • Discover sources to consult for more detail
    • Explore related issues like fee splitting and the unlicensed practice of medicine
