Academic medical centers link medical education, clinical excellence, research and unique health care access settings to train the next generation of medical professionals. In the context of these linkages, an academic medical center often needs to operate on a 24/7 basis. As a consequence of this health care innovation, teaching hospitals, faculty practice plans, university physician groups and medical schools face a broad and complex array of regulatory challenges to advance medicine.
At Hall Render, our academic medicine attorneys understand the need to map the core medical competencies within the domain of health care quality and organizational structures that are needed to develop strong teaching hospitals and strong faculty practices, as well as the intricacies of health care finance and graduate medical education reimbursement. Depending on the legal structure of the academic medical center, challenges may exist involving the state constitution and/or state and federal regulations. Taking a practical approach to solving the myriad issues that arise on a daily basis while balancing a strategic analysis of health care reform and the transformation of the clinical structures in the industry, Hall Render attorneys can help academic medical centers maneuver to success.
