Some select industries are just different.
Like sumo wrestling, aerial acrobatics and space exploration.
And, to be sure, the health care industry.
Indeed, perhaps no other realm of focus and professional endeavor is so clearly singular and distinct as the medical field.
And for good reason. The industry is marked by specialized and highly trained professionals, cutting-edge technologies, epicenter status in life-death outcomes, legal vulnerabilities when things go wrong and routine involvement with myriad standards, rules and laws of numbing complexity.
The medical realm is simply of immense importance to residents in New York and across the country, which renders it susceptible of controls perhaps more than any other industry.
We note on our health law representation website at Daniels, Porco & Lusardi, LLP, for example, that “Regulatory and compliance issues within the health care industry add levels of complexity to transactions that might be considered run-of-the-mill in any other field.”
And those transactions, if capable of being comprehensively listed, would likely fill a spreadsheet a football field long.
Medical industry mainstays including hospitals, doctors, nursing homes, ambulatory surgical centers, durable medical equipment companies, billing entities, diagnostic facilities and countless other actors are routinely and closely regulated by professional organizations, state bodies and federal authorities across virtually every conceivable tangent.
That central reality can make it a flat imperative for any medical field participant involved in what we term “the health care transaction space” to timely and closely consult with attorneys who work on a daily basis with health care clients. Lawyers who command experience in both transactional law and medical-related rules and practices can help ensure that their clients are fully compliant with relevant laws, proactive in their business strategies and protected against risk to the fullest extent possible.
From a transactional standpoint, perhaps no other industry is as complex as the health care arena. Experienced attorneys with a proven record of client representation in this changing and dynamic field can help business clients deal effectively with the challenges.
