Pre://view '08 Mintz Levin Health Law Practice Looks Ahead

“Give me insight into today and you may have the antique and future worlds.” Ralph Waldo Emerson had it right: To understand current events, you must be aware of preceding developments, and, in doing so, you can better prepare for the future. Mintz Levin’s Health Law Practice believes

that an in-depth grasp of the issues driving the health industry must be grounded in their history, and only then can those insights inform legal and business strategies going forward.

We therefore have assembled the following overview of a few significant issues and developments that have recently become prominent in the health industry and that certainly will continue to take center stage in the coming year.

Steve Weiner, Chair of Mintz Levin’s Health Law Practice, describes the 2008 outlook as follows: “Government enforcement will continue in intensity and will affect major structuring decisions in the fields. On a more positive note, we have reached an exciting and challenging

intersection of technological innovation and services delivery. How new technologies are used, and how the law facilitates or impedes their application, have enormous implications for the cost, quality, and accessibility of care. These are key developments to watch in 2008 and beyond.”
