James Rosenblum attended the 2018 American Bar Association convention in Chicago.

James Rosenblum attended the American Bar Association’s celebration of the Declaration of Human Rights, held in Paris. It included presentations by leading experts on efforts by the American Bar Association and the United Nations, to promote human rights.


James Rosenblum successfully completed a six-week on-line course given by MIT on the “Internet of things,” including business and financial strategies for implementation. The course raised an array of legal concerns, including of course, privacy. While the internet of things is often considered to be home based, for things like appliances, it will have an enormous impact upon “smart cities,” with collection of data identifying when and where people travel. It will also have an impact on health care as it becomes more decentralized and as “smart devices” can effectively collect and transmit health care information. The “hospital” or the “doctor’s office” is clearly no longer the main repository of personal health care information.

March, 2017. Mr. Rosenblum attended a 3-day conference on cyber security presented by Yale Center for Global Legal Challenges and the Yale Office of International Affairs in New Haven. The conference addressed cyber threats in business and in national security and increasing costs and complexity in addressing them. The focus was to bridge the divide between law, technology and business in cybersecurity. It included practitioners from leading law firms, cybersecurity technology experts, policy experts and academics working at the cutting edge of cybersecurity. It reviewed the technical threat landscape, the regulatory and legal landscape, and the process of making decisions about cyber-security. It also addressed ways to restructure the legal and regulatory landscape to better bridge the cyber-divide.

In particular, the program addressed the following topic:

  1. Vulnerabilities of networks
  2. Effective strategies for determining whether network vulnerabilities exist and the challenges faced in this regard
  3. Ways to safeguard networks including encryption and programs which divert malware into sinkholes
  4. Disadvantages of self-help remedies, such as hacking back and the limits of such remedies
  5. Use of international law enforcement to seek redress against cyber hackers / thefts and the limits of such remedies and
  6. The use, and limits of federal and local law enforcement in assisting privately owned networks


On Dec 2, 2016, James Rosenblum gave a presentation to the Litigation Counsel of America’s Renaissance Symposium at the Harvard Club. The talk involved uncooperative clients and professional liability clients whose goals and approaches to litigation were divergent from their insurers.


James Rosenblum published an article on theories of extra-contractual liability for alleged failure to settle claims in PIAA Magazine, published by Physicians Insurers Ass’n of America. The article is likely to be of interest to insurers facing such claims where exposure may exceed policy limits. It discusses traditional “bad faith” theories, as well as “negligent failure to settle” claims. It also provides guidelines for minimizing liability for such claims.


How cooperative are State Health Departments in investigating claims, providing information, answering questions, and negotiating resolutions. The answer is that little information is usually forthcoming and charges are often unnegotiable. Health care providers need to be prepared early for hearings, even where charges seem unfounded. Jim Biondo has successfully handled several investigations in New York and Connecticut.[email protected] He can provide clients with the challenges presented by such investigations and deft ways of negotiating with these governmental agencies and challenging potentially adverse decisions.

Anesthesia Practice Management Conference
In April, Attorney Jim Rosenblum attended a conference on anesthesia practice management presented, in part, by Tulane University. The conference addressed consolidation in the healthcare industry and how it is affecting anesthesia groups in particular. Featured speakers included leaders of the North American Partners in Anesthesia (NAPA), and business consultants to such groups, including investment banking firms.Issues included dealing with RFPs (requests for proposals to continue relationships with hospitals,), identifying and assessing potential merger partners, pros and cons of independent groups, financial assessments of groups, and related issues.A featured recommendation to add value to anesthesia groups was to establish “peri-operative surgical homes.” The concept is an extension of “medical homes,” which are intended to coordinate care resources. Since “home” and “surgery” don’t seem like an ideal match, a new, more accurately descriptive terms is likely to emerge. The evident point, of course, is that surgical planning and management after the recovery room, are important components of care.By enhancing these resources, anesthesia groups can help to solidify relationships with hospitals or out-patient centers where they work, with surgeons or proceduralists with whom they work, and of course, with patients.Providers do an excellent job with in-patient care. However, studies have indicated that post-discharge follow-up can be very important, as well. Patients may be well-treated but not “cured.” The stress of undergoing medical care is also eased by having a reliable, on-going resource. Enhanced patient care throughout all phases is clearly good for patients and, presumably, for the bottom line.
