Health Care Law
Thomason Hendrix has experience in providing services to clients in the health care industry on a number of issues affecting health care providers and organizations. With the dramatic increase in the utilization of electronic medical records (EMR) systems, health care providers face more exposure to liability than ever before. We offer services to assist clients in complying with complex and constantly-changing privacy and security requirements pertaining to health care information, including the federal regulations associated with the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA). Our attorneys have also defended covered entities in claims made under HIPAA, represented providers in recovery audit contractor (RAC) claims, and advised clients regarding clinical trial compliance and anti-kickback concerns under the Stark Act.
Clients have sought our firm's services on a variety of issues pertaining to the management of the myriad of risks associated with providing health care services. With the firm's tradition of representing physicians and their groups in professional liability litigation, we understand the importance of loss prevention and risk mitigation in the health care industry.
