    The health-care industry and its professional practice are currently in uncertain times as the outcome of the hotly debated health-care reform is awaited. While the magnitude of potential change may be unchallenged, the past century has been one of continual change for the medical profession and its practice. The rapidity of this change has continually increased with emerging new technologies and changes in the social fabric of society. Even the doctor-patient relationship has changed. Medicine as a profession and the specialties within it have had to adapt to this change in order to be relevant to the physicians it trains, the patients they treat, and to maintain status among their peers. This book chronicles the history of the successful adaptation to required changes in one medical-school department.

    Population health is not possible in a discounted fee-for-service world, and the significant healthcare business challenge is how to transition from fee-for-service to risk-based capitation in a sustainable way. The following represents an outline for how this transition can be staged so that early steps exploit the benefits of fee-for-service while the latter ones exploit a more capitated model:

    Not too long ago, I had the sad task of testifying at a civil litigation and a judicial hearing for two physicians who had been suspended from their respective medical staffs. In both cases, the suspensions and resultant procedural rights were avoidable because proactive communication and management did not effectively take place. Such events should be rare and most medical staffs can easily avoid them by focusing on preventive actions and addressing potential performance issues early in a supportive and assertive manner.

    Hospital CEOs may have once cast a wary eye when a retail clinic opened in their backyard, but that paradigm has shifted as health systems are increasingly opening their own retail clinics or affiliating with retail clinic operators.

    Regulatory hurdles prevent more hospitals from using e-health to its full potential. Federal and state policies and regulations on care rendered via technology from a remote site spin a tangled web for providers either engaged in e-health or who want to be. A February 2014 article in Health Affairs found strong associations between state policies and hospitals' adoption of e-health, also known as tele-health or telemedicine.

    Alarm fatigue has moved to the forefront of hazards on the hospital floor. Nursing staff gets bombarded by hundreds or thousands of beeps, rings, whistles and pings emanating from bedside devices in a shift, and it can be difficult for them to distinguish the critical from the routine. An analysis of hospital alarms at Johns Hopkins Hospital counted a total of 59,000 alarms over a 12-day observation period, an average of 350 alarms per patient per day.1

    Companies invest considerable time, effort and money when selecting and implementing a major mission critical computer system. Successfully completing the process can be complicated and frustrating; as a result, it doesn't take a lot for implementations to fail. The problem is that the business organization that undertook the implementation in the first place is stuck - stuck with the time, money and the inconvenience of not having the system they purchased. The company has not only left without the new system, they are back to using the systems that they originally thought so inadequate that they committed to spending the time and money for a new system.

    Implementing a mission critical computer system has a significant impact upon a business organization. Successfully completing the process can be complicated and frustrating; as a result, it doesn't take a lot for the implementation to fail. Once an implementation fails, there is always enough blame to go around. The problem is that the business organization that undertook the implementation in the first place is stuck – stuck with the time, money and the inconvenience of not having the system they purchased. The company has not only left without the new system, they are back to using the systems that they originally thought sufficiently inadequate that they committed to spending the time and money for a new system. Successful litigation will help – but will not make them whole. But worse, a failed litigation only compounds the problem. Preparing the strategy for litigating a failed implementation takes time and thought. This article will take the reader through the development and implement of a litigation strategy that worked and discuss why it worked.

    The role of the litigation attorney is to tell a story to the arbiter in such a way to effectively represents the client's position. Often the attorney requires a person with unique expertise to understand and present technical information in a manner that is understandable to the lay person. Attorneys often determine the need for an expert witness after discovery and after depositions have been taken for many of the witnesses. In many cases this is too late for an expert to most effective. My experience as an expert witness has led me to recommend considering the use of an expert at the following times
