Topic: Economic Tools Used to Evaluate Health Care Provider Mergers

In recently litigated health care provider mergers, the FTC has persuaded courts to use a two-stage competition model to assess geographic markets and competitive effects. In collaboration with a group of health care economists, the AHLA’s Antitrust Practice Group has published a toolkit that provides an overview of the economic tools that antitrust enforcers and private parties use to analyze provider transactions. The toolkit's nine parts also summarize other cutting-edge issues relevant to an analysis of competition in the health care industry. The speakers on this educational call will provide an overview of the economic tools used by the agencies and the courts in analyzing provider mergers, and will discuss how to use the AHLA’s new economic toolkits to assist you in your practice.

Note: No CLE offered for this course.
