Biography

This course is intended to be an introduction to the American legal system and the laws that affect public health and health care. Initially, the course focuses on public legal relationships between governments and individuals, and proceeds to review private legal relationships between individuals or organizations. It reviews the source of laws affecting health care, the basics of constitutional law, the right to privacy, state and federal regulation of health care, and negligence in health care. It wraps up with an introduction to cutting edge health care issues such as health care fraud and abuse compliance and medical record privacy.
