Attorneys engaged in medical malpractice defense can better represent their clients when they understand the fundamentals of professional licensing in healthcare. There is a national practitioner database containing information about licensed healthcare professionals and the information is shared among the states. Settlements and certain occurrences are reported to the national database on a mandatory basis, which could cause licensing issues in more than one state.
Presenting on licensing issues and their intersection with medical malpractice defense, attorney Favia has more than 25 years of experience in health law and litigation and works in conjunction with a team of litigators, experts and investigators to advise and represent clients. He is experienced working on both sides of professional licensing matters, the prosecution and defense. He is a former Assistant Illinois Attorney General and Chief Prosecutor for the Illinois Dept. of Professional Regulation (“IDPR”), now known as the Illinois Department of Professional and Financial Regulation (“IDFPR”).
