Serwin Quoted on HIT Vendors

30 September 2009 Healthcare Information Technology Alert News

Foley Partner Andrew Serwin was quoted in an article titled "Don’t Let HIT Vendors Pull a Fast One — 5 Expert Pointers Protect Your Interests" in the September 2009 issue of Healthcare Information Technology Alert. Serwin suggests that healthcare providers that house electronic data off-site through information technology vendors consider establishing a right to court intervention in the contract to force the turnover of data. He notes that having a right to appeal to a third-party can be an important fail-safe in the event that a healthcare information technology vendor goes out of business or breaks a contract over a dispute.
