June 12, 2019 by matray

MIEC announced its inaugural MIEC Summit for Insurance Defense will take place in Boise, Idaho, on June 20, 2019. The Summit for Insurance Defense is a new annual regional seminar series. Each year it will be hosted in one of MIEC’s territories. The goal of this seminar series is to bring together physicians, practice managers and legal professionals to learn and network.

The event will take place at Boise’s Riverside Hotel where attendees can pick one of two educational seminar tracks focusing on either Idaho Law or Patient Safety & Risk Management. Each track features two, one-hour sessions with communal breaks in between. Attendees will learn proactive methods of protecting a practice from potential liabilities and how best to defend clients, with the opportunity to earn CLE credits for those eligible.

The legal track speaker panel features staples of the Boise legal community: Raymond Powers, Esq., of Powers Farley PC; Keely Duke, Esq., of Duke Scanlan & Hall, and Andrew Brassey, Esq., of Brassey Crawford & Howell, PLLC.

During the second legal session, attendees will learn effective strategies to address jury selection in cases involving hospital and independent providers, effective voir dire strategies and latest jury selection trends. Furthermore, attendees will gain insight into being able to successfully navigate the challenges of presenting evidence in an abbreviated trial schedule, prepare and present witnesses in theses challenged schedules, and develop tactics to keep jurors engaged through disruptive trial schedules.

The patient safety risk management track features nationally recognized practice management specialists Debra Phairas, president of Practice & Liability Consultants, LLC, and Kim Stanger of Holland & Hart, LLP. Their sessions will center around minimizing practice liability. Focusing on aging, impaired or otherwise disruptive physicians in a practice, as well as addressing ways to minimize risk when employing non-physicians in your practice.

Following the educational seminars, both tracks will come together for a joint keynote presentation from Justin Skeesuck and Patrick Gray. Justin and Patrick have had a unique friendship that spans over 42 years. Despite the many challenges of a progressive neuromuscular disease robbing Justin of the use of his arms and legs, the two seek to live life without reservation. Justin and Patrick use their life/work experiences and their adventures as the backdrop to which they explore concepts such as leadership, teamwork, relationship and the power of the human collective.

Finally, the seminar will close out with a social cocktail hour, allowing attendees to meet, socialize and network among fellow medical and liability professionals.
