Foreword
     The American Bar Association (ABA) Health Law Section
proudly presents its 2004 Supplement to E-HEALTH BUSINESS AND
TRANSACTIONAL LAW—a book that has helped lawyers and their clients
better understand and find solutions to the legal issues arising from
the integration of the Internet and other technology into the health
care delivery system. This book is the second full-length book pub-
lished by the Section with our friends at BNA Books, a Division of The
Bureau of National Affairs, Inc., the first having been HEALTH CARE
FRAUD AND ABUSE: PRACTICAL PERSPECTIVES. Both are down-to-earth
references that were written by practitioners for practitioners.
     The Health Law Section expresses its continuing appreciation to
Editor-in-Chief Barbara Bennett, who has spent many hours of ser-
vice in writing, editing, and chasing after the other authors in order
to keep this book current and meaningful. We also want to recognize
again the contributions of past Section Chairs Howard Wall and Pa-
tricia Meador, who helped initiate this effort and saw it become a re-
ality. Thanks also to James Fattibene and Ann Gerster at BNA Books
and, particularly, to the Supplement authors for their hard work and
service to the profession.
     On behalf of the ABA and its Health Law Section, we are pleased
to have this continuing opportunity to share our members’ collective
experience in the dynamic area of e-health. We believe you will find
this Supplement to be a continuing valuable resource. We would wel-
come your thoughts about how the Section can further use its BNA
book series to address your practice needs.

Preface
     The term “E-health” has taken on a new meaning since this trea-
tise was first published in June 2002. The idea for the book originally
grew out of the need of businesses and their counsel for legal guidance
in the “dot com” days of the Internet bubble. When the downturn ar-
rived, the attraction of the “e” moniker seemed to dissipate, and those
of us involved in this project wished we had used “health technology”
rather than “E-health” to describe an area of health care that was
larger and much more pervasive and solid than the Internet bubble.
     Very soon, however, the financial markets reflected an increased
interest in biotechnology and life science businesses, each of which
also faces the regulatory issues that make the health care industry
both an opportunity and a challenge for those willing to thread that
needle. A new convergence of interests in the development of elec-
tronic medical records; the Medicare Prescription Drug, Improve-
ment, and Modernization Act of 2002 with its e-prescribing grants; the
appointment of a federal government E-health czar; the popularity of
and controversy surrounding Internet sites enabling drug reimporta-
tion; and the seemingly endless HIPAA regulations all reinvigorated
the cache associated with the E-health label.
     Thus E-health remains an extraordinarily fertile field for growth
and development and, as before, it is impossible to publish a hard copy
text that remains altogether current. The pace of development is
breathtaking, and those who authored chapter updates for this Sup-
plement have simply tried to stay within sight of the emerging issues.
Nonetheless, the new developments and issues covered in this Sup-
plement are remarkable and many.
     Without repeating my acknowledgments of the numerous au-
thors and champions that are found in my original Preface, I would
like to recognize each of them again without reservation. All that was
said before shall stand, and then some.
     I would like to take this opportunity to acknowledge new authors
who have contributed to this Supplement. Cheryl Reicin and Joel
Rubinstein very ably assumed responsibility for updating Chapter 2
on business and finance issues. Paul Gilbert and his coauthors have
expanded and improved Chapter 7 on contracting principles for E-
health transactions. Alan Goldberg and Daniel Orenstein stepped up
to the plate and contributed an entirely new and remarkable Chap-
ter 14 on HIPAA enforcement issues. Andrew Ferren provided the im-
pressive supplement for Chapter 5 on property rights in technology
and information.

xii         E-Health Business & Transactional Law—2004 Supp.

     As before, I invite and welcome comments and suggestions, criti-
cal and otherwise, from readers so that each future supplement is an
improvement as well as an update of recent developments.
