The Business of Healthcare

The Business of Healthcare Grand Rounds program explores themes such as clinical practice management, leadership and healthcare’s changing landscape under reform legislation. The lecture series is a collaboration between the Johns Hopkins Department of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery and the Carey School of Business. Lectures are open to all faculty members and residents, as a component of the department’s newly instituted business education curriculum. Selected presentations are also open to the general public.

The 2015-2017 Business of Healthcare Grand Rounds Lectures are made possible by a gift from the Edelman-Gordon family in honor of  Stanley A. Klatsky, M.D.

Upcoming Programs

Non-Clinical Physician Revenue: Managing Your Relationships with Outside Sources

Many physicians and surgeons earn income through non-clinical activities that may constitute conflicts of interest, such as consultant activities, creating and/or marketing technologies or attending industry-sponsored lunches at national meetings. Disclosing potential conflicts of interest can be confusing and further complicated by evolving regulations related to the Sunshine Act, as well as local and institutional requirements. This program will address topics including permissible outside activities for practicing physicians, different types of disclosures required by Johns Hopkins, policies and interaction with industry, and other topics. A Q&A session will follow the presentations.

Speaker presentations will be followed by a panel discussion, during which they will be joined by Jeffrey Rothstein, MD, PhD, Chair of the Johns Hopkins Conflict of Interest Committee, Lisa Broadhead, MPH, Assistant Director of Marketing and Innovation at Johns Hopkins Medicine Marketing and Communications who worked on the Johns Hopkins Sunshine Planning Group, and Joseph Lopez, MD, MBA, Johns Hopkins PGY-3 Plastic Surgery Resident who has conducted research using Sunshine Act data. Audience interaction with the panel is highly encouraged.

Speakers:

  • Christina Doty, JD, MA, Director of the Office of Outside Interests
  • Mary Ann Dunlay, JD, MHS, Director of the Office of Interaction with Industry
  • Lisa Broadhead, MPH, Assistant Director of Marketing and Innovation at Johns Hopkins Medicine Marketing and Communications who worked on the Johns Hopkins Sunshine Planning Group
  • A representative with the Office of Policy Coordination
