CBC Releases Health Law and Discrimination CDs

Article excerpt

Clark Boardman Callaghan, New York City, has announced the release of two more law-related CD-ROMs.

National Health Lawyers Association Laws on CD-ROM

With the heightened regulatory and structural changes in health care, the National Health Lawyers Association (NHLA) saw a need to provide attorneys with guidance to crucial health care issues. The result is NHLA's Health Law on CD-ROM, available exclusively through Clark Boardman Callaghan.

In both coverage and treatment, NHLA's Health Law on CD-ROM is designed to help health law attorneys in research, client counseling, contract negotiation, and brief writing. It focuses comprehensively on regulatory activity affecting health care compliance strategies at all levels of the health care system, and proven practice tips and checklists.

Within this focus, attorneys will get a collection of cases related to the health care industry and its constituents, including doctors, hospitals, laboratories, skilled nursing and long-term care facilities, and other health care providers. Over 12,000 cases and documents spanning 11 years are compiled in digest and full-text formats, and categorized into 39 topic areas for easy access.

NHLA's Health Law on CD-ROM also provides health law-related materials from the USCS, CFR, and Federal Register. With an eye toward maintaining compliance and avoiding litigation, the CD-ROM covers Safe Harbor Regulations, Special Fraud Alerts, Merger Guidelines, and DOJ and FTC Enforcement Statements. In addition, attorneys will be able to access NHLA seminar materials going back two years.

The gateway to this information is Clark Boardman Callaghan's flagship print product, Health Law Practice Guide, which conveniently links to all of the other databases. It analyzes issues related to fraud and abuse, facility operations, provider rights and responsibilities, enforcement policies, antitrust concerns, and more.

And, NHLA's Health Law on CDROM features "hot links" so that attorneys can access needed information by topic, case name, statute, regulation, author, seminar paper, or jurisdiction-- even jump back and forth between information databases. …
