Health Care, Medicare, Affordable Care Act, HIPAA Legal News

Healthcare law is constantly changing, especially in today’s data driven online world.  Healthcare providers have unprecedented concerns related to privacy and cybersecurity as different technologies and threats intersect in ways never seen before.  With the growth of cloud computing and electronic health records, more regulations and greater scrutiny has been given to the industry, as hospitals, medical providers and healthcare agencies are liable in new and different ways.

The National Law Review covers all legal aspects of the healthcare industry, with expert legal analysis on HIPAA regulations, non-profit organization status, to home health and nursing care abuse.   Additionally, the National Law Review covered all aspects of the Affordable Care Act, or Obamacare, and its implementation, as well as the various attempts to repeal the ACA and new legislation in the healthcare arena, including the American Health Care Act of 2017.

Visitors can read about the US Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), the Office for Civil Rights (OCR), and regulations being promulgated by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA). The Center for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) is also frequently discussed as it relates to drug pricing plans and premiums, new insurance policy requirements and other industry norms.

A major issue in healthcare is the prominence of Ransomware attacks and other cybersecurity concerns, as they relate to patient protected information and HIPAA compliance.  Healthcare systems wanting to maintain compliance with HIPAA regulations and protect patient privacy can find legal analysis and information on how to do so.

Additionally, the rise of Telehealth initiatives in a variety of areas is another area covered by the National Law Review.  With these new technologies, there is a lot of opportunity for innovation, however, careful understanding of telehealth legislation, reimbursement policies and regulations is essential to maintain a standard of care and avoid litigation.

Hospice care, the opioid epidemic, Medicare reimbursement, and issues with antitrust when healthcare systems merge are among the news stories covered by the National Law Review.  Visitors will consistently find updated stories on regulating medical devices, new life sciences technologies, and legislative developments in the healthcare arena. Because the industry is ever-changing, the National Law Review always has new content related to healthcare law.
