    Bloomberg Law recently published the article "Health Information Technology and Antitrust: Those Who Forget the Past Are Destined to Repeat It," authored by Squire Sanders partners Mark J. Botti and Anthony W. Swisher.

    This article highlights that while potential antitrust pitfalls are numerous and varied, with careful planning and an appreciation of antitrust policy priorities, HIT companies, as well as their customers and suppliers, can find that very real antitrust risks are also very manageable. Mark and Anthony offer a few preliminary guideposts for HIT companies to sensitize them to the world of antitrust.
