Hi, I would greatly appreciate suggestions.

I am taking a class on healthcare provider compliance (so far it is covering medicare and medicaid fraud protection statutes and the like).  I am not having trouble with the law so much as I am understanding how business dynamics work in the medical profession.  (e.g. who are the employees vs. independent contractors in a medical business, how do pharmaceutical co's interact with dr's versus hospitals etc.)  It is hard to describe, but it is tricky.  Maybe I should just pick up a magazine about the field.

Can anyone help?
