Alexandra Busto

Alexandra Busto is an associate in the Health Care group. She works with academic medical centers, hospitals, long-term care facilities, surgery centers, foundations and clinics, medical groups/IPAs, accountable care organizations and other entities affiliated with the health care industry. Alex also represents companies in the health information, medical device, and telehealth fields.

What do you focus on?

I focus on transactional and regulatory matters for health care providers and others in the industry. Namely, I assist clients with hospital/physician alignment strategies, joint ventures, mergers, acquisitions and other strategic transactions. My practice also includes providing counsel with respect to physician self-referral (Stark law), anti-kickback, licensing and certification and other health care compliance matters. In addition, I work on projects for both for-profit and nonprofit clients on corporate governance and formation matters.

With the rise of telehealth, digital health and the development of new products and services within the health care market that focus on value-based care, I’ve also worked to address challenges of reimbursement, licensing, state law prohibitions, access to and use of data and fraud and abuse compliance in these areas.

What do you see on the horizon?

I expect that the continuing development of new technologies will encourage greater collaboration between providers and will have the potential to change the way health care organizations deliver care. As federal and state agencies shift their focus to data sharing and coordination and adopt policies promoting digital health technologies, I anticipate seeing increased sophistication in approaches to the provision of accessible, quality care at lower costs.
