The Philadelphia Inquirer has tapped 3L Erica Cohen to be a weekly contributor to the newspaper's Check Up blog. The blog provides information on health and medical issues across the Philadelphia region.
In her latest article, Cohen discusses some physicians' use of Medical Justice, a company which "offers proactive services that protect physicians' reputations," to censure negative reviews of physicians.
In an earlier article on the blog, Cohen discussed the potential risks to personal electronic health records.
Cohen is completing a concentration in health law and is a member of the school's Health Law Society. Prior to law school, she worked for DKMS Americas, the world's largest bone marrow donor center. She currently works as a legal intern in the Office of General Counsel at the Children's Hospital of Philadelphia.
For the last two years, Professor Robert Field has been a regulator contributor to Check Up, writing articles about health reform, health policy and more. In a Sept. 7 article, Field argued that, while the Affordable Care Act was a step in the right direction, much more needs to be done to address all of the health care system's needs.
