Jena M. Grady

Jena Grady is an associate in Nixon Peabody’s Health Care practice group.

Jena Grady is admitted to practice in Arizona and Illinois and is currently being supervised by attorneys admitted to practice in New York.

What do you focus on?

Compliance and Regulatory

I advise clients on Medicare and Medicaid compliance issues, scope of work and licensing issues. I also provide guidance to clients on how to comply with the Anti-Kickback Statute, the federal Stark law and state law equivalents.

Health Care Transactions

I assist clients in health care transactions including joint ventures and contractual arrangements. I also work with private equity firms seeking investments within the health care field including mental health.

HIPAA/Health Information Privacy and Security

I assist health care providers and business associates, including electronic health record vendors and health information exchanges, comply with HIPAA. I also provide guidance on state and federal requirements governing the privacy of mental health information.

What do you see on the horizon?

With the continuing push to pay for value rather than volume, I expect clinical providers to initiate and develop relationships with community service providers in order to address health-related social needs that affect health care costs and outcomes.
