Health Care Management and the Law, Second Edition is designed for those who will be leading and shaping twenty-first century health care organizations. This unique text raises questions about health law issues such as emergence of the U.S. as a player in the global health care industry, innovative new approaches to the payer/provider model, and the future of tailored therapeutics. Throughout the text, the author addresses the challenges of what many view as a health care crisis in the United States and examines how laws must be reformed to create a system that works properly.

The book bridges research and practice, reflecting new, real world knowledge of the health care industry and government agencies. The health law concepts in this text are practical; application of the concepts seeks to provide health care managers with sufficient knowledge of the law to become intelligent, critical thinkers in professional practice. Students will gain knowledge of when and why they should consult attorneys.

Challenging, current administrative and judicial decisions are presented. Students can customize their learning experiences by selecting from thirty-seven topic chapters or studying a specific topic in-depth, using the text bibliography and multiple resources provided. The author focuses on interpretation, insight, and ideas; i.e. the meaning of the law, not only on what occurred pursuant to it.

Key Features:

  • Explores not only physicians and hospitals, government regulations, and medical insurance issues, but also looks at the producers of medical products: pharmaceuticals, biotechnology and biopharmaceuticals, medical devices, and health information technology
  • Includes unbiased case studies presented in a manner that accurately reflect the function and intention of the courts’ rulings
  • Written with state-of-the-art research methods, using searchable online databases that are revolutionizing research on health care management and the law
  • Reviews jurisprudence and seeks common themes as well as conflicts
  • Clearly explains the innovations transforming global health industry practices and public policy
