Program Materials

Description

The e-discovery federal rules amendments, effective just six months ago, forced companies and attorneys to implement systems and procedures to deal with the retention and destruction of electronic information potentially discoverable in pending and future litigation.

Knowing how to manage e-discovery challenges may, literally, make the difference between victory and defeat in litigation. To successfully handle the delicate demands of electronic discovery in healthcare operations and litigation, it is vitally important to develop highly effective information management strategies.

Listen as our panel of healthcare law and litigation specialists reviews the new rules amendments, how they impact the electronic discovery of information involving healthcare clients and companies, and how attorneys can comply with the latest requirements.
