Health Law Networking Social in Raleigh with Highlights from Hamlet HMA v. Hernandez

By Iain Stauffer

The October 2018 decision in Hamlet HMA, LLC v. Hernandez by the NC Court of Appeals broke from decades of case law and held that business disputes between hospitals and physicians can be the basis for claims of unfair and deceptive acts and practices under NCGS Chapter 75. The possibility of Chapter 75 claims multiplies the financial exposure of healthcare providers (and their litigation opponents) in a wide range of commercial and business disputes.

What does this mean for healthcare entities while Hamlet HMA is under review by the NC Supreme Court? How should providers evaluate business disputes and Chapter 75 claims as a weapon in litigation?  Please join us for the highlights and discussion of the Hamlet HMA case and implications for disputes between providers, along with a chance to network and catch up with colleagues in the healthcare bar.
