Contracts in Healthcare – Public Health Management and the Law
Monday, June 5, 2023 | 12:30-2:00pm | Online
Why is it important to know some basic law about contracts? Suppose you are asked to work on a provider network agreement, or an affiliation agreement with another health care organization, or you have been asked to work on a grant application. What will you need to know to give meaningful input into the contracting process? You may be asked to negotiate contracts with health care providers, managed care organizations, health insurers, and many other entities, or your attorney may email you a draft contract and ask you to comment on it. As managers typically will be involved in contract negotiation and performance of the contractual obligations, a basic understanding of the legal concepts that apply to health care contracts and contract management is essential. Failing to perform a contractual obligation can result in a breach of the contract and result in legal liability. In this workshop, we will cover basic legal aspects of contract formation and negotiation, and contract performance, and also when you need to get a lawyer for legal advice.
