Connecting in-house lawyers, government officials and private practitioners to address the most important issues of the industry

Fall/Winter 2012 Health Law Reporter Preview

Wednesday, January 09, 2013
In anticipation of the forthcoming 2012 Fall/Winter issue of the Health Law Reporter, we are pleased to present this sneak peek into the issue. First, a Policymaker Profile of Laurance Stuntz, the Director of the Massachusetts eHealth Institute, the state entity responsible for helping providers and payers in the state connect to the Massachusetts Health Information Exchange (“Mass HIway”). Second, a related article that provides an inside look at the policy and technology of the Mass HIway, co-written by four leaders directing its development and deployment. We know you will find both articles interesting and informative. The full 2012 Fall/Winter issue will be published shortly, and will include articles about HIPAA enforcement trends, the CMS demonstration project in Massachusetts concerning dual-eligibles, and the development and growing trend of Medical Legal Partnerships. It will also include four health law case briefs covering topics ranging from the application of the psychotherapist-patient privilege to whether application of a hospital’s intellectual property policy resulted in violations of privacy. Be on the lookout for the full issue in the coming weeks, but for now, here is your sneak preview.
