Hospitals and Health Systems
Hospitals and health systems are experiencing unprecedented financial pressure and transformation because of health care delivery and payment changes including, efforts to pay providers for value as opposed to volume (e.g., increased financial risk, unrelenting audit activity, and emphasis on health care industry integration efforts).
Hospitals and health systems continue to operate under overlapping layers of regulation, including Federal and State fraud and abuse laws, Medicare and other payor requirements, HIPAA and State privacy laws, and Federal tax-exempt principles and bond financing considerations. Having a qualified health system or hospital attorney is critical.
