ARLINGTON, Va. and INDIANAPOLIS, Ind., June 21, 2017

/PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Bloomberg Law and Hall Render today announced the publication of Health Care Joint Ventures, a new portfolio that addresses legal issues that arise in joint venture transactions involving health care providers. The portfolio,
which was authored by Hall Render health care practice attorney David A. Lips, is now available to Bloomberg Law subscribers. To download an excerpt of Health Care Joint Ventures, visit

The portfolio provides an in-depth analysis of the issues that arise in health care joint ventures and how they apply to different types of joint ventures, including those between competing hospitals and those between hospitals and physicians, either acting individually or as physician groups. Antitrust and tax-exemption considerations as well as fraud and abuse issues are examined in detail and Health Care Joint Ventures concludes with insightful discussions of additional joint ventures types, contractual joint ventures, group purchasing organizations, and independent practice associations.

"Joint ventures give hospitals and physicians opportunities to expand their businesses, enhance their reputations and grow their patient bases; however, they are also fraught with legal risk," said Hall Render attorney David A. Lips. "This portfolio addresses those risks by the type of joint venture and by the kind of participants who choose to partner in this way. It was a privilege to author this portfolio and also to add annotations to transaction documents for practical guidance on Bloomberg Law's Health Care Practice Center."

"With health care reform front and center, industry participants continue to pursue partnerships and alliances such as joint ventures and this portfolio provides a detailed roadmap for navigating these very complex transactions," said Scott Falk, Vice President and General Manager, Health Care & Litigation, Bloomberg Law.  "We are grateful for the efforts of David Lips who has authored a portfolio that gives attorneys an appreciation for some of the key factors for establishing health care joint ventures — and a better eye for recognizing obstacles to be addressed that could become serious issues if not addressed proactively."

Bloomberg Law portfolios are written by expert practitioners and feature deep-dive analysis and practice tools, such as checklists, sample client letters, forms and other supporting material, on a wide range of key legal topics. For information on the full range of health care resources available on Bloomberg Law, including practical guidance on health care joint ventures, visit
