“Innovative Arrangements for Physician Alignment”

PYA Principal Annapoorani Bhat was a featured presenter at the 2022 American Health Law Association’s (AHLA) Fundamentals of Health Law program in Chicago, November 9-11, 2022. Along with Jeanna Palmer Gunville of healthcare law practice Polsinelli PC, they led a session titled “Innovative Arrangements for Physician Alignment.”

Annapoorani and Jeanna explained the types of arrangements available to providers in aligning with health systems, other healthcare participants, and even private equity firms to achieve common goals and provide incentives to facilitate high-quality patient care. They covered:

  • Operating structures, including value-based care arrangements, integrated networks, Accountable Care Organizations, Management Services Organizations, and Independent Practice Associations.
  • Essential transaction documents for alignment, including professional services agreements, administrative services agreements, management services agreements, and network participation agreements.
  • Key legal and business considerations and how to address them.
  • Valuation basics, including key concepts and application.
  • Case studies highlighting best practices.

The Fundamentals of Health Law program is a valuable training program for both new and experienced associates, health lawyers, and in-house counsel; compliance officers; consultants and others who advise healthcare clients; and health professionals. The program’s faculty not only dispense their knowledge of legal issues, but also provide insight into the challenges ahead to help attendees build an effective legal practice.
