Our team frequently advises health care providers on state and federal statutes and regulations affecting the security of individuals’ protected health information, including HIPAA and the new requirements under the HITECH Act. We inform clients of best practices for minimizing the legal risks associated with such information, and if need be, how to appropriately respond to regulators and take corrective action in the event of a data breach. We also help clients develop or update their privacy policies and procedures and draft business associate agreements, patient privacy notifications and information release authorizations. Our broad industry exposure and deep regulatory knowledge empowers clients to quickly and effectively troubleshoot any critical issues that arise relating to authorizations, records requests and personal representatives. We also stand ready to defend clients in administrative and civil litigation involving privacy issues.
