Healthcare General Counsel's Need Support from Outside Hospital Attorneys

Often Healthcare General Counsels/Inhouse Counsels are the inside firefighters in healthcare organizations. Their value comes from their ability to predict and quell internal issues that have a multitude of ramifications. For them to be effective they must be able to off-load three types of work:

  • Complex, unique and time-consuming document drafting,
  • Redundant and repetitive document drafting, and
  • Conflicts i.e. litigation or investigations, continuing in the outside world.

These are highly time-consuming tasks, that General Counsels do not have time for while they are steering a ship. This is where Healthcare Law Partners can be most helpful, and earn your business.

If you are looking at this website, it is because you have a need:
  1. To speed up contract review (or to free up the contract clog);
  2. To understand the rights and obligations, limits, and restrictions in a contract that will affect the future. Gain a better understanding of what is a high-risk versus low-risk contractual provision; 
  3. To know whether you are in compliance with Stark Laws and the Anti-kickback Rules, or understand the potential risk to your license; 
  4. To defend or assert a legal claim in court, or if you just want a second opinion on your case. 

The healthcare triangle is not easy to navigate through, and you need an outside counsel to help you deliver what you promised the operations team.

Today's requirements upon healthcare organizations and post-acute care facilities are mounting, from taking care of patients, and keeping up with ever-changing protocol, to maintaining health records and making sure you get a fair reimbursement for the services provided. Most in-house counsels need well-rounded attorneys on the outside who can also provide specialized knowledge about the healthcare industry, patient protocol, financial strategies, and the law.
