Three Katten Health Care attorneys will present during IPMI's 2018 Healthcare Law & Compliance Institute. Partner Michael Callahan will present "Integrating Medical Staffs: Challenges and Solutions." This presentation will identify "hot spot" areas that need to be identified and addressed in order to maximize improvement in the delivery of higher quality patient care services while reaping the economic benefits. Topics include:

  • Does moving to a single, unified medical staff make sense?
  • What do you do with significantly different medical staff bylaws, rules and regulations?
  • How to address conflicting credentialing/privileging eligibility criteria.
  • How to evaluate and maximize peer review procedures and immunity and privilege protections.
  • How can physician quality and peer review information be legally shared throughout the system?
  • What forms of "economic credentialing" make sense and how these restrictions can be incorporated into the medical staff governance documents.
  • How to deal with disparate leadership structures.

Partners Ken Davis and Laura Martin will co-present "Evolving Strategic Transactions: Environmental Drivers, and Approaches for Matching Strategy to Market Changes." This session will cover pros, cons, pointers and pitfalls associated with some of the most prevalent strategic transactions in the evolving health care market, including:

  • The current wave of super Clinically Integrated Networks (CINs) and CIN reorganizations: what is driving this wave and how should these organizations be structured to accomplish population health management and business objectives.
  • Service line horizontals (including contractual affiliations and joint ventures) and joint operating company arrangements: key considerations to stay ahead of the market.
  • Verticals with physicians, post-acute care providers and ambulatory care companies (including publicly traded and private equity backed companies): what are the drivers, how have these verticals structurally changed, and what can they accomplish.
  • Ambulatory care arrangements: how hyper-focused strategies morph to stay with the market (e.g., "provider-based" becomes "reverse under arrangement").
