Health and Social Services

Overview

The legal environment surrounding public and private health care and social services providers is particularly complex. Institutions must deal with increasingly difficult and demanding circumstances. They must meet a growing number of diversified needs and provide more services to an aging population, while respecting serious budget constraints in a highly regulated sector. They must also maintain close relations with a multitude of upstream players (suppliers of medical appliances and equipment, ambulance services, etc) and other stakeholders (general practitioners and specialists, unions, governments, etc.) to better meet the needs of the people they serve.
