AUSTIN, TEX. – With ongoing changes in health delivery and ever-increasing government scrutiny over care, physicians face a number of pressing legal risks this year.
At an American Health Lawyers Association meeting, Birmingham, Ala., health law attorney William W. Horton shared the top legal dangers for doctors in 2016.
From False Claims Act investigations and whistle-blower claims to liability connected to value-based care, clinicians have a lot to consider, said Mr. Horton, who is chair of the American Bar Association Health Law Section.
In a video interview, Mr. Horton also discussed how to reduce liability and limit government inquiries.
