Health Care and Antitrust Law.

Health Care & Antitrust Law, published by Clark Boardman Callaghan, is the first treatise to systematically treat the applicability of antitrust principles to the health care sector. This three-volume publication covers such topics as hospital staff-privilege issues, physician exclusive contracts, mergers and joint ventures by health care institutions, and market allocation agreements. This material provides insight into dealing with the agencies most directly involved in the enforcement of the antitrust laws.

Also included in this timely treatise are the recently issued Department of Justice and Federal Trade Commission Horizontal Merger Guidelines. Up-to-date case law is presented on a circuit-by-circuit basis so the lawyer is never at a loss for the latest legal rulings and analysis from both a plaintiff's and a defendant's perspective.

The authoritative reference work is intended for health care law and antitrust attorneys, in-house counsel for hospitals, hospital systems, professional associations, insurance companies, managed-care plans, home health suppliers, durable medical equipment suppliers, pharmaceutical manufacturers, health-care libraries, government agencies, and health-care educational institutions.

Clark Boardman Callaghan, a division of Thomson Legal Publishing, publishes more than 500 authoritative legal manuals, handbooks, treatises, and newsletters covering all major specialty practice areas. Related titles in the Health Law Library include: Health Care Fraud and Abuse, Patient Care Decision-Making, and The 1992 Health Law Handbook.
