[The] Changing Health Care Industry (20467). 1 unit, credit/fail. This course will investigate the legal and policy implications of the increasing consolidation and integration of the health care industry. or example, how does the practice, payment and quality of medicine change when providers are also insurers? Or when providers are acquired by hospitals? The course is motivated by the inaugural conference of the Solomon Center for Health Law and Policy at Yale Law School, co-sponsored by the Yale School of Management, on November 13, 2015, which will bring together health care, business and antitrust leaders across academia, government, and industry to think about these matters. No prior experience in health care or antitrust is required; the goal is for all to learn. Students will be expected to attend the conference, as well as three pre-conference seminar sessions, and one post-conference session. Students in the seminar will also be invited to all special conference events. Students wishing to receive a credit will either write a very short comment (online or in print) in conjunction with the conference, or assist with the publication of a book coming out of the conference. This course will take an interdisciplinary approach, investigating the impacts and effects from the perspective of physicians and hospitals, insurers and manufacturers, policymakers and government enforcement agencies, law and economists. Given that this topic cuts across a number of academic fields, the readings will do the same. The course is open to participation from the Law School, the School of Management, the Medical School, and the School of Public Health. Permission of the instructors required. Enrollment limited to twenty-five. Permission of the instructors required. A. Gluck.
Note: In addition to participating in all conference sessions, students will be required to attend three pre-conference class sessions and one post-conference class session. The dates and times of the four class sessions are to be announced.
