Ann will present a talk entitled Zen and the Art of Representing Hospital-Based Physician Groups at the AHLA’s 2016 Physicians and Hospitals Law Institute in Austin, Texas. Her talk, with co-presenter Jay Martus, Esq. from Washington, D.C., will address business and legal issues faced by physician groups that have exclusive contracts to perform services at hospitals — radiologists, anesthesiologists, emergency physicians and hospitals. The two will address the business dynamics influencing contractual provisions and legal issues in hospital-based physician agreements with hospitals.
