Second-generation legal issues in integrated delivery systems

Healthc Financ Manage. 1995 Jan;49(1):54-7.


The formation and operation of integrated healthcare delivery systems raise significant legal issues. Some of these issues, such as antitrust, tax-exempt status, and fraud and abuse, have been discussed extensively. However, other legal issues, such as those involving management of business risk, use of systemwide information management, and securing of tax-exempt financing, have not received much attention.
