The Supreme Court and the Hospital/Horizon OMNIA Two-Tiered Provider Network Dispute

The Supreme Court announced that it has granted review in Saint Peter’s University Hospital, Inc. v. Horizon Healthcare Services, Inc.  That case, and related litigation involving hospitals and Horizon, has gotten much publicity in the press.  The question presented, as phrased by the Supreme Court Clerk’s Office, is “In this action concerning defendant’s implementation of the OMNIA two-tiered provider network, did the trial court err in ordering the production of certain discovery, which defendant contends was inconsistent with the Appellate Division’s judgment now on review before the Supreme Court in Capital Health System, Inc. v. Horizon Healthcare Services, Inc.; Saint Peter’s University Hospital, Inc. v. Horizon Healthcare Services, Inc. (A-29/30-16)?”

The Court that this appeal be accelerated.  It will be argued together with the Capital Health and Saint Peter’s cases on June 20.  As discussed here, the question presented in those already-pending appeals is “In this action concerning defendant’s implementation of the OMNIA two-tiered provider network, may defendant redact certain information as confidential and proprietary before producing documents in discovery?”
