I’ll be speaking on Monday August 2 in Washington DC for CPA Associates Intl at their annual valuation conference on Medical Practice Valuation in the post-Reform era and on the incorrect use of the Cost Approach in valuing practices.

I’ll be speaking at the BVR Divorce Summit in Chicago on September 14 on Reform’s impact on the Valuation of Medical Practices.

I’ll also be speaking at the Michigan Association of CPAs 2010 Specialized Business Valuation Workshop & Simulcast on Tuesday, October 19, 2010 at the Ford Motor Company Conference & Events Center in Dearborn. The following day – on October 20 – I will be reprising my half-day Seminar on the Healthcare Reform legislation for the Michigan Association, which will be updated to reflect the barrage of regulations that have been issued since June.

The Massachusetts Society has me asked me to present the Seminar on the Healthcare Reform again and that will take place on October 25 at a location to be announced, likely Framingham or Natick.

I’ll be presenting two sessions at the AICPA National Healthcare Industry Conference in Vegas this November. One session will deal with antitrust issues in transactions and negotiations between physicians, hospitals and networks, with a focus on the new Accountable Care Organizations (ACOs) as well as what can and cannot be shared with respect to fees and how it is accomplished. My co-speaker will be healthcare antitrust attorney Jim Reeder of Vinson and Elkins’ Houston office. The second session with my friend and colleague Tim Smith of Healthcare Appraisers will deal with Fair Market Value issues in healthcare valuation and compensation, again with a focus on ACO and other integration transactions. Time permitting, I hope to introduce a new Primary Care Compensation Model I am developing for the ACO market.

Finally – for now – I’ll be speaking at the AICPA National Valuation Conference in Washington DC. I’ll be sharing the session with my friend and colleague Carol Carden of Pershing Yoakley, who is also Chair of this year’s Conference. The topic is Factors in Forecasting Cash Flow and Estimating Cost of Capital in Healthcare and will be based upon our joint paper in the June 2010 issue of Business Valuation Update.
