MIEC Summit for Insurance Defense – Boise, ID 2019

Published on:

We’re happy to announce the inaugural MIEC Summit for Insurance Defense is taking place in Boise on June 20th. 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.

Get ready for an afternoon in Boise’s Riverside Hotel where you 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. You’ll learn proactive methods of protecting your practice from potential liabilities & how best to defend your 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 & independent providers, effective voir dire strategies, and latest jury selection trends. Furthermore, attendees will gain valuable 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 and 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 & Patrick Gray. Justin and Patrick have been blessed with 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. They believe the most successful individuals are those who understand their own limitations and invite others to be a part of their journey.

Last, but certainly not least, we’ll be close out the seminar with a social cocktail hour. Allowing all our attendees to meet, socialize, and network among fellow medical & liability professionals.
