Today Thomson Reuters introduced Health Care, a new practice area within Practical Law, to deliver legal information related to multiple health care topics and other critical legal know-how content.

Practical Law Health Care provides deep expertise and knowledge in easy-to-understand resources to address federal and state statutes in areas including fraud and abuse, payment and reimbursement, and patient privacy. It also provides compliance guidance for changing health care laws, and advice to help mitigate risks and significant penalties for health care entities and staff.

“Practical Law Health Care is designed with input from our customers to meet their needs and has resources developed by our lawyer-editors to guide users through many health care-related topics,” said Thomson Reuters Practical Law Director Rachel Byrne. “Practical Law Health Care will serve as the expert down the hall for the latest insights and guidance, especially important in today’s work-from-home environment when there often is no ‘down the hall.’”

Covering U.S. laws and regulations, Practical Law Health Care will help legal professionals spend more time serving as a strategic partner for the business, not just a resource to produce legal documents. The six topic areas within Practical Law Health Care include:

  • Clinical Trials & Research
  • Fraud, Abuse & Compliance
  • Payment & Reimbursement
  • Patient Privacy & Security
  • Health Care Entity Formation & Governance
  • General Health Care

Practical Law has more than 600 expert lawyer-editors globally across 16 practice areas who create content including practice notes, standard documents, checklists and other resources, providing comprehensive insights and answers to legal professionals’ “how do I” questions.
