Legal Triage:
DCMS Benefit
L

egal triage is a local program that assists members of
the Delaware County Medical Society in assessing their
need for legal services in areas related to the business
of medical practice (i.e., excludes medical malpractice related
matters). The service consists of an initial telephone consultation
for members without charge by Attorney Karen E. Davidson, an
experienced health care lawyer who will assist DCMS members in
assessing their legal needs.
Attorney Davidson has been providing legal guidance in health
law for more than 20 years. She has represented health care providers including physicians/groups practices, non-profit foundations, hospital/health systems, billing companies and others that
do business in the health care market.

Ms. Davidson is offering members a free initial telephone
consultation. Types of matters that may need legal consultation
by members include:

Sale of your medical practice to a hospital/health system,
and/or negotiation of a related employment agreement

compensation

formulas

third party payers including contract negotiation, repayments, etc.
Review and analysis of accountable care organization
documents
Separation and/or medical practice retirement/departure
Start-up of medical practice, or
HIPAA breach issues and/or compliance issues/
concerns

Within the last year, several of these issues have come before
Ms. Davidson by health care providers. Once the legal triage
consultation has been completed, DCMS members can seek
outside counsel or utilize the services of Ms. Davidson. If additional services are provided by Ms. Davidson, DCMS members
will receive a discount on her then applicable hourly rate. You
can reach Ms. Davidson at her Conshohocken office, (610) 9404014 or by e-mail, karend@kdavidsonlaw.com.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------In addition to offering this service to DCMS members,
Ms. Davidson will also share information about
legal matters related to the business of health care
through this publication, DCMS Physician. If there
is a health care related topic you would like addressed,
send ideas to DCMS Executive Director David
McKeighan, dmckeighan@comcast.net or call (610) 892-7750.
