Health Law Section Fall Meeting – New Frontiers on Health Care
The ever-changing health care industry continues to struggle with reducing the cost of care while enhancing access and improving the quality of care and patient satisfaction, and finds itself needing to embrace new technology, new applications of emerging technology, and new ways of managing terminal illness and chronic disease as a means of achieving that triple aim. These new frontiers of medicine are not without legal, ethical and
political implications pertaining to data security, patient privacy, and a patient’s right to choose physician-assisted death with dignity or a new (perhaps controversial) course of treatment.
These issues continue to challenge our clients while they keep a watchful eye on the tides of anticipated sweeping change under the current federal administration, and the implications of “repeal and replace” for New York State. This program offers participants insight to regulatory changes, anticipated regulatory changes, and the corresponding legal, ethical, and political implications. Our expert panel of speakers will describe how these
new regulatory programs work, recent changes, and how to avoid pitfalls as we help our clients navigate these new frontiers in health care. This program is relevant for attorneys representing all provider types including, but not limited to, health systems, in-house counsel, insurance /payor plans and governmental attorneys involved in health care regulation.
