Healthcare law covers an extremely broad area, which includes the full body of legal rules governing the activities of persons and institutions charged with the prevention of illness and the provision of care to the sick.

Questions may also arise regarding the practice of the medical and healthcare professions, conditions relating to licences to practise, the applicable professional and ethical rules, disciplinary procedures or disputes between healthcare providers and insurers (usage of TARMED, unusually high fee notes, reinsurance requests, etc.).

In a stricter sense, medical law is used to refer to the rules establishing more specifically the legal framework for the activities of physicians. This may include the field of medical liability in its various manifestations, the organisation and management of a medical practice as well as the rights of patients (such as informed consent, access to the medical file, professional confidentiality).
