E-Health & The Law
This book is among the first to focus on this important new area of legal practice. It is based on a seminar sponsored by the Medicine and Law Committee of the International Bar Association and held at Cancun in October 2001. The book presents the reports of nine outstanding health law practitioners¿from Belgium, The Netherlands, Germany, the United States, and Canada¿that examine such diverse and significant matters as the following:
Although many more issues continue to arise in this new and complex field, this book provides a clear path to a reasoned analysis of the subject, and is sure to be useful as an ¿opener of the way¿ for future research and analysis. It will be of great value not only to health care lawyers and legal researchers but also to government regulators and providers¿whether medical professionals, hospitals and other health care institutions, or manufacturers and distributors of health care products.
