Hall Render attorney David Lips has partnered with Bloomberg Law to publish Health Care Joint Ventures, a portfolio examining the legal issues that can occur during joint venture transactions involving health care providers. The portfolio includes in-depth analysis of the complications that can arise in health care joint ventures and the ways they apply to various types of joint ventures.
“Joint ventures give hospitals and physicians opportunities to expand their businesses, enhance their reputations and grow their patient bases; however, they are also fraught with legal risk,” said Lips. “This portfolio addresses those risks by the type of joint venture and by the kind of participants who choose to partner in this way. ”
The portfolio addresses antitrust and tax-exemption considerations as well as fraud and abuse issues and also includes valuable discussions of types of additional joint ventures types, contractual joint ventures, group purchasing organizations and independent practice associations.
Health Care Joint Ventures is now available to Bloomberg Law subscribers, and an excerpt can be downloaded here.
