Bringing Healthcare Legal Professionals Together to Share Best Practices.
Leveraging Strategic Legal Leadership to Effectively Navigate the Evolving Healthcare Landscape.
Healthcare providers, payers, and other stakeholders, as well as governments are being pushed to pivot, adapt, and innovate at a speed unlike any chapter in recent history. The pandemic placed unprecedented strain on a range of challenges already facing the healthcare sector – workforce shortages and burnout, supply chain issues, financial sustainability, changing demographics, growing public debt, and socio-economic inequities in the delivery of care. Disruptive innovations such as the rapid adoption of virtual health visits as well as the emergence of new delivery mechanisms and sites hold the promise of transformation in a traditionally slow-moving industry.
As hospital and health system Boards, CEOs and finance committees grapple with an increasingly tough financial environment, there is a recognition that while finances are a driver, there are other factors at play that have less to do with reimbursement mechanisms or trends that are happening with Medicare and Medicaid and more to do with how entities provide care, the settings that are used for care, and the labor crisis and unexpected labor costs. Underpinning these challenges is the reality that in the healthcare industry, there is increasing pressure to work differently; the market is shifting, and the industry is being forced to work more efficiently in order to meet rapidly evolving patient, consumer, and stakeholder expectations.
Within this context, hospital and health system General Counsel have found themselves thrust into bigger roles, those of strategic advisor or partner to their senior executive administrators and boards of directors, demanding different skill sets to be successful. The 2024 Healthcare Law & Compliance Institute provides a unique, intimate environment for experienced and accomplished hospital and health systems legal leaders to gather. Interactive Panels, Think Tank Sessions, Case Studies, and One-on-One Business Meetings will allow you to explore some creative ways that hospitals and health systems have approached these challenges: what worked, what did not work, and what are some ways that General Counsel and Chief Legal Officers have guided their organizations to ensure continued sustainability and future growth.
