PLI 2023 Request for Proposals

The American Bar Association Health Law Section (HLS) and the Chicago Medical Society (CMS) are requesting proposals for the upcoming Physicians Legal Issues: Healthcare Delivery & Innovation Conference (PLI), which will be held September 7-9, 2023 in Chicago, IL.

The deadline to complete and submit the Program Proposal Form is Friday, March 24, 2023.

PLI is focused on the intersection between business law and healthcare, innovations in healthcare delivery, and regulatory compliance. While the Planning Committee welcomes submissions on any relevant topic, the following broad topics are believed to be of particular interest to attendees:

  • Physician contracting with insurance companies
  • Value Based Compensation and Alternative Payment Arrangements
  • Federal Trade Commissions (FTC) proposed rule on noncompete agreements
  • Physician participation in clinical trials
  • Balancing State law prohibitions on certain types of medical care with physicians’ need to provide medically necessary care
  • Health privacy and Cyber security
  • Best practices to manage payor audits
  • 60-day report and refund rule
  • Transparency & No Surprises Act
  • Physician wellness and other healthcare workforce considerations
  • Ethics
  • Pandemic lessons learned

HLS and CMS continually strive to increase the participation of women, diverse ethnicities, disabled, and LGBTQ speakers in our activities, as well as presenters from distinct geographic locations and practice settings. It is suggested that submitters consider including a physician speaker as a member of the panel to provide balance and an important perspective from within the medical community. Please consider these criteria when proposing prospective speakers.

Please note that multiple proposals covering the same topics are frequently received. At the discretion of the Planning Committee, these proposals may be consolidated. Proposals that are not selected for this program may be considered by the HLS Distance Learning Committee for an upcoming webinar or member benefit program within the ABA.

You will receive notification regarding your submission once the PLI Planning Committee has finalized its selections. If you have any questions about the submission processes, please contact Danielle Daly, Meetings Manager, at [email protected].
