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 healthcare 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 healthcare 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 healthcare compliance matters and serve as outside general counsel to a number of providers.
Increasingly, many traditional healthcare 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 healthcare 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.
Healthcare is increasingly more consumer-facing, fueled by advances in technology and our comfort level with remote communication. The challenge for the industry is navigating this rapid change and staying relevant in the market, while simultaneously juggling regulatory compliance, work-flow modifications, and managing patient expectations.
