Have You Registered for the AHCLA February Webinar: "The Electronic Health Records Incentives Program," Feb. 20, 12-1:30 pm CST?

February 20th Webinar:

  The Electronic Health Records Incentives Program: The Good, The Bad and The Ugly

Please join the Asian Health Care Leaders Association (AHCLA) on Wednesday, February 20th from 12:00 -1:30 pm CDT for the final webinar of our HCA-sponsored webinar series, "The Electronic Health Records Incentives Program: The Good, The Bad and The Ugly."


As we know, health care law requires a depth of understanding that goes beyond that commonly found in general practice firms with health care law departments. Such depth can only be achieved through industry specialization and experience. Listen to unique insights from those talking directly to the providers and suppliers in all aspects of their business needs: regulatory transactions, litigation, arbitration and dispute resolution needs, as well as advocacy and public policy.


The two presenters for this webinar, Felicia Y. Sze and Eric D. Chan, are affiliated with Hooper, Lundy & Bookman, PC, the largest full service law practice in the country dedicated solely to the representation of health care providers and suppliers. With offices in Los Angeles, San Francisco, San Diego, and Washington, D.C. and clients in 50 states, Hooper, Lundy & Bookman, PC meets the business, litigation, regulatory and government relations needs of a broad array of health care providers--ranging from the largest national health care organizations to community hospitals and individual physician practices.


Key Takeaways:

  • Attendees will understand the fundamental basics of the EHR incentive payments, including eligibility for payments and general timeframes
  • Attendees will learn about the auditing that CMS is currently pursuing with respect to EHR incentive payments
  • Attendees will learn about threats of liability that providers have received related to the adoption of EHR systems
