Jones Health Law Podcast: What is Health Law?

Jones Health Law Podcast

“Health Law” is broad and interdisciplinary term used to describe an area of legal practice by which certain local, state and federal laws, rules, regulations and other jurisprudence regulate individuals, the health industry, and the delivery and financing of healthcare services. Many national and state boards and associations have created rules and regulations in order to protect rights of the public and those practicing or working in the healthcare industry. While these rules and regulations are not legally binding under the color of the law, many courts view these rules favorably and they hold great weight in courtroom proceedings.

Many of those practicing within the healthcare industry may not be aware of the laws that govern their practice area. The healthcare industry is highly regulated and the laws governing the industry are complex and interconnected in many instances. It usually takes the assistance of an expert in Health Law to assist you to ensure that you are acting within the confines of the applicable Health Law or any other law that may impact your relationship or transaction. It is important to be proactive rather than reactive to avoid any investigations by governmental agencies, licensing boards, or associations.
