Conference on Accountable Care Organizations

Accountable Care Organizations (ACOs) are a hot health care reform topic. ACOs are supposed to improve quality and reduce waste by promoting coordination of care and best practices.  But they could spur clinical and business relationships that run afoul of antitrust law and other federal and state regulation.  On Oct. 28, 2011, Seton Hall University's Health Law and Policy Program will feature a stellar lineup of attorneys, academics, and physicians to address the thorny legal issues raised by (ACOs).  The luncheon keynote speaker will be Dr. Jeffrey Brenner, founder of the Camden Coalition of Healthcare Providers. Dr. Brenner was featured by Atul Gawande in a New Yorker story that applauded his tireless work to improve the quality of care for disadvantaged individuals in South New Jersey. Brenner has demonstrated that a rational health care system can “lower medical costs by giving the neediest patients better care.”
