As a health law and life sciences lawyer, Jill Gordon represents 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. Jill also represents companies in the health information, medical device and telehealth fields. Jill is a member of Nixon Peabody’s management committee.
I assist health care providers and others in the industry with transactional and regulatory matters. My practice is primarily focused on hospital/physician alignment strategies; forming joint ventures and other alliances; structuring mergers and acquisitions; and negotiating managed care and other agreements, such as physician contracts, facility leases and management and co-management arrangements.
Many of my transactions incorporate bundled payment relationships, pay for performance and shared savings incentive programs and the creation of clinically integrated or “narrow” networks. I also provide counsel with respect to physician self-referral (Stark law), anti-kickback, licensing and certification and other health care compliance matters and serve as outside general counsel to a number of providers.
Increasingly, many traditional health care providers and suppliers, as well as emerging companies, turn to me for counsel with respect to the creation of new products and services within the traditional health care market that have some “digital health” component such as sensor technology, remote monitoring, health-related apps or other forms of software. Much of this work focuses on integrating novel products and services into the existing market and addressing issues such as reimbursement, licensing, state law prohibitions, access to and use of data and fraud and abuse compliance.
I expect to see continued consolidation in the industry and increased sophistication in approaches to capturing, reporting and using data with respect to increased quality and decreased cost. Our challenge in this industry is anticipating how data will reorganize the care delivery system and remaining flexible to move with the market.
