I was President of a Medical Staff and, thus, am familiar with the JCAHO system; I was deeply involved in Organized Medicine for 20 years and, thus, am familiar with policies generated by professional entities. I have scrutinized the law and how it influences medical and administrative procedures; the interface between law and medicine continues to fascinate.
