HIPAA and state laws present the health care industry with stringent standards for patient privacy, data security, transactions and code sets. Compliance can require rethinking old procedures and systems and training employees to work and think differently. We help our clients rise to the challenge efficiently and affordably—whether they’re health care providers or entities that come into contact with protected health information.
We draw on extensive industry and regulatory know how to evaluate your current risk and find resource-sensitive compliance solutions. We also work with our clients to structure their transactions strategically, build compliant business associate programs that protect their interests and manage their litigation risk. And in the event of theft or loss of sensitive information, we’ll help you respond quickly and efficiently, take needed steps to avoid future incidents and guide you through any ensuing litigation or government investigation.
