Twice each month, PYA experts discuss the latest industry regulatory developments during our popular Healthcare Regulatory Roundup (HCRR) webinar series. On August 30 PYA presented an overview of the Emergency Medical Treatment and Labor Act (EMTALA) and discussed compliance in today’s changing legal landscape.

EMTALA was established years ago, but new challenges in providing hospital emergency care are surfacing due to changes in state abortion laws and related lawsuits.

PYA Principal Karin Anderson and Senior Manager Traci Waugh provided an overview of EMTALA requirements and discussed how to ensure compliance in the face of a changing legal landscape:

  • Overview of EMTALA requirements
  • Impact on provider liability in the face of changing and conflicting state abortion laws
  • Compliance checklist
  • EMTALA enforcement and response to surveys

The complimentary webinar took place on August 30, 2023. Attendees of the live webinar were able to earn 1 CPE* Credit in Specialized Knowledge.
