Introduction

Companies engaged in the health care industry – whether they provide direct patient care, develop information technology or research new drugs or medical devices, among a range of other services – are subject to complex regulatory and business risks. In addition, there are a number of employment law concerns specific to employers in the health care industry. Staving off the risks associated with these concerns can help prevent disputes and costly litigation.
