EMI 2024 Request for Proposals

The ABA Health Law Section is requesting proposals for the 25th Annual Emerging Issues in Healthcare Law Conference (EMI) April 3-6, 2024, in New Orleans, Louisiana.

The deadline to complete and submit the Program Proposal Form is Thursday, September 7, 2023.

As the name suggests, EMI is focused on emerging issues in healthcare law. We welcome submissions on the issues you see affecting the healthcare legal and business environment. While the EMI Planning Committee is open to all emerging topic proposals, the Committee developed the following list of broad topics that it believes would be of particular interest to attendees:

  • Artificial Intelligence/Augmented Intelligence
  • Disruptors in Health (including care models, digital health, etc.)
  • Legal Challenges in the Aftermath of the Dobbs Supreme Court Decision
  • Healthcare Workforce Considerations (including nursing strikes and workplace violence)
  • Innovative Approaches to Improving Health Care Access
  • Growing Interest in Provider Risk-Based Arrangements
  • Legal Implications of Private Equity Investment in Healthcare
  • Medicare Advantage
  • Evolving State Regulation of Healthcare (including corporate practice and transaction notices/approvals)
  • Risks and Rewards of Transparency & No Surprises Act
  • Antitrust
  • HIPAA/Privacy (including recent FTC and state law efforts and cyberattacks)
  • Legal Issues in Behavioral and Mental Health
  • Ethics
  • What is New and Next in Enforcement (including provider relief fund auditing and enforcement)
  • Environmental Issues (including legal issues associated with rising temperatures and associated care demands)
  • Healthcare Litigation (including payor-provider disputes)
  • Medicare Reimbursement Changes

Our strong preference this year is for no more than two panelists per proposal. We also encourage submitters to consider proposing speakers who work in-house or at government agencies.

If you have any questions about the submission processes, please contact Danielle Daly, Meetings Manager, at [email protected].

We value your participation and look forward to your proposals!
