Health Care Privacy and Security

Litigation Hero Image.

HITECH amendments to HIPAA and the revised privacy and security rules have the health sector adjusting to new expectations and increased enforcement, all complicated by the rapid expansion of mobile technologies to facilitate access to patient data. The evolution of cloud computing, EHRs, and PHRs potentially enhances both patient outcomes and information risk. We can counsel you on these issues, as well as the complexities of health record interoperability, genetic privacy, and compliance with state health privacy laws.

We can assist your company with HIPAA compliance; privacy and security risks associated with EHR systems and personal health information; business associate agreements; security breach incident response, including mitigation, remediation, breach notification, and working with IT forensics professionals, state and federal law enforcement and regulators, and affected individuals; and notices of privacy practices.
