Hosted By: The Economics and Health Care and Pharmaceuticals Committees of the American Bar Association's Antitrust Section

The Antitrust Section of the Economics and Health Care and Pharmaceuticals Committees of the American Bar Association will host this brown bag program in the Washington, DC office of Hogan & Hartson on 8 November 2007. The program will focus on hospitals, health care professionals, and health care insurers, with an emphasis on how the basic principles of antitrust economics are practically applied in the health care industry. NERA Senior Vice President Dr. Lawrence Wu will participate in the discussion, which will cover the key economic concepts and analyses relevant to assessing competition in the health care marketplace. The faculty will discuss product and geographic market definition; the range of market power (monopoly and monopsony) issues facing health care professionals, hospitals, and health insurers; contracting practices of providers and insurers; the potential competitive implications of hospital-physician relationships; and the factors that affect the ease of entry and expansion into provider and payer markets.
