Health Law

Health care is among the most highly regulated industries, being subject to extensive legislation and agency oversight at federal and state levels. Many of these laws and regulations revolve around health care providers – those delivering services to patients – while a growing body of laws and regulations is developing around protections for patients, including issues such as health information privacy and access to medical care. Another emerging area of practice in the health care sector involves the rapidly expanding use of technology to manage, deliver, analyze, and pay for health care services.
