Health Reform Knowledge Center Offers a Single Point of Reference for Your Research

By TechnoLawyer | Wednesday, November 29, 2017

Today's issue of TL NewsWire covers a research service dedicated to health care regulations, including tools to keep you apprised of regulatory deadlines (see article below). In addition, you'll find links to the previous 11 TL NewsWire features, including our coverage of holiday gift ideas for cultured geeks with good taste, a specialized legal research service for trademark law, including tools for quickly obtaining answers across different circuit courts and international jurisdictions, and much more. Don't miss the next issue.

The Affordable Care Act added to an already rich regulatory environment in the health care industry. Perhaps no other practice area offers lawyers as much opportunity to stay gainfully employed — provided you can stay on top of the torrent of information and find answers fast. A single point of reference is the best option for doing so.

Health Reform KnowlEDGE Center … in One Sentence

Wolters Kluwer's Health Reform KnowlEDGE Center is an online health care law research solution, offering primary and secondary sources as well as specialized tools.

The Killer Feature

Regulations and deadlines go hand in hand. The Health Reform Law and Regulatory Calendar Tracker in Health Reform KnowlEDGE Center enables you to find all applicable deadlines.

Select a source such as a C.F.R. section, a time frame, or one or more topics (e.g., Health Insurers, Medicare, Tax Impact, etc.). This generates a table listing all the effective dates related to your query. Each effective date is accompanied by the source, topic, and instructions written by the lawyer editors who maintain Health Reform KnowlEDGE Center. Click a source to view it. To stay on top of items of interest, you can receive email alerts. You can also export deadlines and related information in a variety of formats, including iCal for importing into a calendar such as Outlook.

Other Notable Features

More than 30 additional Practice Tools exist that work similarly to the Calendar Tracker. For example, Health Reform Navigators enable you to generate summaries on particular topics, including the date the regulation last changed, expert analysis, and links to primary sources. Other tools include Checklists, Decision Trees, and Wolters Kluwer's popular Smart Charts. These tools can reduce the time required to complete a memo or survey.

Among the more popular features of Health Reform KnowlEDGE Center is the Health Reform WK-EDGE news feed comprised of exclusive articles that keep you apprised of new developments related to health care reform. Search the archives back to 2013. Stay on top of breaking news by subscribing to the Health Reform WK-EDGE email newsletter or using the Android or iPhone app of the same name. You can customize the newsletter and app by jurisdiction, topic, and document type. For areas of intense interest, receive an email alert upon publication of a matching article.

You access Health Reform KnowlEDGE Center via a dashboard that you can customize with the references and tools you use most often. Also, you can search through all materials or a subset of content. Primary sources include state and federal cases, administrative decisions, statutes, proposed and final rules, notices, agency documents such as CMS Letters and OIG Reports, and much more.

What Else Should You Know?

"The Health Reform KnowlEDGE Center migration to the Cheetah platform is timely," says Paul Clark, Managing Editor, Health Law, Wolters Kluwer Legal & Regulatory U.S. "Congress is still attempting to repeal and replace the ACA, while the Trump administration is using its executive power to scale back regulation of the law. In this time of uncertainty and change, having a single source like Health Reform KnowlEDGE Center for news, analysis, primary source and tools remains important."

One-Stop Resource for Domestic and International Trademark Research, Checklists, and Forms

By TechnoLawyer | Wednesday, November 8, 2017

Today's issue of TL NewsWire covers a specialized legal research service for trademark law, including tools for quickly obtaining answers across different circuit courts and international jurisdictions (see article below). In addition, you'll find links to the previous 11 TL NewsWire features, including our coverage of a Microsoft Word add-in that enforces firm standards through automated document creation, including data connections to Outlook, document management systems, and other software, a legal research service that automatically locates statements of law in cases and directs you to the best authority for each of them, and much more. Don't miss the next issue.

When you conduct trademark research, it can take a maddening amount of time just to get your bearings. You switch back and forth among several browser tabs, grapple with poorly designed government websites, try to recall which treatise to consult, etc. A better alternative is a single platform with everything you need.

WK Trademark Navigator … in One Sentence

Wolters Kluwer's WK Trademark Navigator is a research service for trademark practitioners, offering single-point access to case law, news, secondary sources, forms, and more.

The Killer Feature

WK Trademark Navigator now runs on the Cheetah platform, offering a modern user experience. A global search bar enables you to search all available references. Beneath the search bar is a dashboard with one-click access to all references and tools.

Case law includes published and unpublished TTAB opinions from 1993 to present. Search by case number, party, or keywords. WK Trademark Navigator also offers more than 160 forms available for download, the ability to search secondary sources such as Allen's Trademark Digest and Manual of Industrial Property (Brown Book), a daily news feed to keep you apprised of the latest trademark cases, and tools for analyzing and comparing requirements and costs in the United States and more than 230 international jurisdictions.

"Regardless of where you are in the process — research, search, application, appeal, or foreign registration — you'll find exactly what you need with WK Trademark Navigator," says Michelle Virzi, Product Manager, Intellectual Property, Wolters Kluwer. "We designed it as a single solution for a multifaceted process."

Other Notable Features

WK Trademark Navigator's news feed has become so popular you can receive the headlines via the Trademark Daily News email newsletter. Unlike competing services, case summaries are written by lawyers. Each case summary links to the court opinion for further investigation.

When clients have questions, WK Trademark Navigator's Smart Charts enable you to provide answers more quickly than a keyword search. For example, the Manual IP Trademark Smart Chart is based on Manual for the Handling of Applications for Patents, Designs and Trademarks throughout the World. After selecting a topic such as registrability of colors and one or more jurisdictions, the Smart Chart provides the answer for each selected jurisdiction with a link to the originating reference.

Other Smart Charts include Likelihood of Confusion by Circuit and TTAB Precedential Decisions. The Likelihood of Confusion by Circuit Smart Chart summarizes the test and factors for the circuit courts you choose. The TTAB Precedential Decisions Smart Chart provides the case citation, case summary, goods and services at issue, marks at issue, and year for the topics you choose.

Like Smart Charts, Checklists and Strategy Guides can save you time. One set of checklists walks you through the entire cancellation process before the TTAB. An accompany strategy guide provides insights and tips for both petitioners and respondents. Other checklists and strategy guides cover trademark filings, classification, and office actions.

What Else Should You Know?

WK Trademark Navigator links to three popular services — Alt Legal for filing domestic applications and responding to office actions, Corsearch for trademark screening and monitoring, and ktMINE for analyzing intellectual property data. Learn more about WK Trademark Navigator.
