Selected Topics in Health Law Seminar (4400)
The seminar will focus on two important topics in practice of health law: litigation under the the Civil False Claims Act, and the advent of "accountable care organizations." The first topic, addressing what are known as qui tam actions, involves one of the most important tools used by the Federal Government and by whistleblowers in fighting fraud and abuse. The second topic looks at new entities that typically provide organized care to a group of patients using "evidence based medicine." In order to understand "accountable care organizations" one must deal with virtually every aspect of the practice of corporate health care. Successful completion of the Health Law survey course is recommended.
