Distinguished attorney and health policy strategist, Charles Bond, J.D.,will provide an analysis of the current state of the medical profession andpropose a vision for its future.  He will explore challenges in our system of medical education and the pressing need to train doctors how to work together using new and sophisticated skills that are essential in the evolving health care market. Mr. Bond will discuss, in practical terms, how physicians might realize and mobilize their individual and collective power for the good of the patient, for the good of the physician, for the good of the medical profession and for the good of health care reform in the country.   

 

About the Speaker

As a lawyer, Charles Bond has written and lectured nationally on virtually all legal and practical aspects of the practice of medicine. He began by helping to draft MICRA, California's malpractice reforms that still serve as a model nationwide. He and his firm have created or represented more medical groups and physician organizations than any other lawyers now practicing in America. Drawing on his vast experience with managed care strategies and physician organizations, he has written and spoken widely on Accountable Care Organizations (ACO's) and Continuum of Care Organizations (COCO's) and consults with such organizations nationwide. He has taught AMA's course on how to set up a medical practice, and has spoken and published extensively on all forms of physician contracts, especially physician employment contracts. He has also worked with faculty practice plans and academic physicians across the country, as well as with medical students and physicians in training.

 

Throughout his 40-year career, Mr. Bond has always been active in health policy, not only advising medical organizations, but serving on numerous health policy think tanks. In recent years, he has devoted much of his efforts to the founding and fostering of the Patient-Physician Alliance, a non-profit, non-political national organization dedicated to reforming and re-designing health care from the grassroots up.

 

He is also the author of Training the Helpless Physician and AMA's first book on Physician Employment Agreements.
