The tremendous growth of hospitals and health systems in the United States was spurred on after World War Two with passage of the Hill-Burton Act, which funded the construction of new facilities, and the Social Security Act of 1965, which established Medicare and Medicaid and greatly expanded the number of people who have some form of health insurance. The universe of hospitals and health systems began to grow and evolve, and continues to do so. This Handbook examines the multitude of issues that those who represent hospitals and health system need to be informed about but will also be a critical guide for those who represent physicians, diagnostic imaging facilities, other health care facilities, as well as financial institutions.
- Establishment of facilities;
- State licensing requirements;
- Certification process;
- Payment methodologies;
- State and Federal fraud and abuse regulations; and
- Operational issues, including patient relations, privacy, grievance rights, and consent to treatment
All health attorneys and others in the health care field who need to understand the intricacies and complexities of hospitals and health systems will find Representing Hospitals and Health Systems Handbook, First Edition an indispensable resource.
