Pepper Hamilton – To assist the health care industry in better understanding the special needs of the homeless population when they seek medical treatment and the recent focus on readmissions of such patients to hospitals, Pepper Hamilton LLP partner Henry C. Fader recently authored two articles:
“Frequent User Patients – Reducing Costs While Making Appropriate Discharges,” which appeared in the March issue of HFM, the magazine of the Healthcare Financial Management Association (http://www.hfma.org/hfm/)
