We advise healthcare organizations in complying with all federal and state laws governing the privacy and security of patient health information. This includes conducting risk assessments, developing privacy and security policies and procedures, training staff, and ensuring that third-party vendors and business associates comply with applicable laws and contractual requirements.
If a healthcare organization faces a data breach, we help them quickly respond and mitigate their risk, which includes notifying affected individuals, law enforcement, and regulatory agencies, as well as conducting internal investigations and implementing corrective actions to prevent future breaches.
We advise healthcare organizations and conduct workshops on emerging privacy and security issues related to digital health, such as telemedicine, mobile health applications, and the use of artificial intelligence and machine learning in healthcare. This includes assessing legal and regulatory risks associated with these technologies and developing strategies to mitigate those risks.
We also operate on behalf of healthcare organizations in negotiating and drafting contracts with their technology vendors and other business partners to ensure that privacy and security obligations are adequately addressed and enforced.
