LAWS 352 - Health Care Business Transactions
(3 cr.) This course gives students the opportunity to study health law as it relates to transactions in the healthcare industry. The course is structured around a set of standard healthcare business transactions. For instance: (1) A health system desires to provide professional medical services; we will evaluate options for corporate organization, physician compensation, and related employment or service contracts. (2) A tax-exempt health system desires to create a joint venture with physicians to provide ambulatory surgery services; we will evaluate corporate organization, tax-exemption and fraud and abuse issues, and review key terms of an Operating Agreement. (3) A health system is considering corporate governance issues; we will evaluate different options and good governance practices and review key terms in relevant corporate documents. (4) A health system is considering contracting for medical equipment; we will evaluate fraud and abuse issues and various key contract issues and provisions. (The professor 54 may elect to use other types of transactions as new developments arise in the health care field.)
