This book represents the cutting edge of physician law. The publication emanates from the American Bar Association Health Law Section’s 2014 Physicians Legal Issues Conference. The conference and Physician Law: Evolving Trends & Hot Topics have been produced in conjunction with the Chicago Medical Society and the American College of Physician Executives, tailored to an audience including physicians, lawyers, healthcare administrators, and other healthcare business people.
The book includes eight peer-reviewed chapters on core physician-centric legal topics: 1) Entrepreneurial Medicine (including fraud and abuse risk areas); 2) Physician-Hospital Contracting; 3) Trends in Medical Liability Insurance; 4) Social Media Pitfalls for Healthcare Providers; 5) Privacy HIPAA/HITECH (including the HIPAA megarule); 6) Accountable Care Organizations and Principles for Physician Employment; 7) Medical Staff Attorney and Hospital Attorney Ethics and Roles; and 8) Physician Wellness.
Physicians will especially benefit from the content which addresses a broad range of non-clinical topics that are currently transforming American healthcare. The chapters target issues that are not typically covered in most medically-oriented volumes but nonetheless are critically important in the practice of medicine. Physician Law: Evolving Trends and Hot Topics is an excellent reference for clinicians and professionals who want to stay abreast of current legal and regulatory issues impacting their practice.
