Hospitals and Health Systems
Hospitals and health systems are experiencing unprecedented financial pressure and transformation as a result of changes within the health care delivery and payment regime. Many have been significantly impacted by the third party payors’ efforts to pay providers for value as opposed to volume (e.g., increased financial risk, audit activity and emphasis on health care industry integration efforts).
At the same time, hospitals and health systems continue to operate under several layers of regulation, including Federal and State fraud and abuse laws, Medicare and other payor requirements, HIPAA and State privacy laws, Federal tax exempt principles and bond financing considerations, and for these reasons, having a qualified health system or hospital attorney is critical.
Collectively, the attorneys at The Health Law Partners, P.C. have decades of experience assisting hospitals and health systems in all areas of health law, including corporate governance and transactions, integration and accountable care organization activities, physician practice acquisitions and divestitures and medical staff matters. Furthermore, for health facilities facing issues with licensure and credentialing, governmental investigations and enforcement activities, Medicare and other payor audits, our hospital attorneys can assist you in navigating these complex matters.
For those needing assistance in compliance plan development and implementation, procurement and real estate contracting, telehealth issues, HIPAA and other patient privacy issues, a Health Law Partner attorney would be happy to discuss your matter and provide insight, and careful analysis, for practical, cost-effective solutions.
