From the Paper:"The healthcare industry deals with many different contracts on a daily basis just like every other industry however the healthcare industry deals with many different types of contracts and the complexity of the contracts more than any other industry. It is extremely important that every health care organization has the basic understanding and knowledge of what is required in each contract. There are many sources of liability that every healthcare organization needs to ensure they have knowledge on. The liabilities vary from organization to organization and from position to position. The use of contracts in healthcare varies greatly from those contracts with state payers, managed care organizations, employee unions to suppliers."
