Glenn Prives, Member of the Firm, co-presents a webinar, “Due Diligence in Healthcare Transactions: Mitigating Risks,” hosted by Strafford.
Due diligence, a necessary component of any health care transaction, identifies shortcomings in health care law and regulation compliance. It should mitigate potential exposure to liability and is vitally important in health care transactions due to the industry’s highly regulated nature.
Counsel should review the other party’s existing agreements and relationships for regulatory compliance, including the Anti-Kickback Statute, Stark Law, and False Claims Act. There may also be exposure to potentially significant liability with protected health information under HIPAA and HITECH.
Often nonprofit organizations enter into transactions with for-profit entities. Due diligence is essential in these transactions so that the nonprofit can maintain its tax-exempt status.
Glenn and others guide counsel on due diligence measures that effectively identify and mitigate risks and liabilities in health care transactions. They discuss the legal issues in health care due diligence, including key health care risk areas and requirements, compliance programs, certificates of need, ownership changes, licenses, and permits. They offer best practices for conducting due diligence in health care transactions.
Glenn and others review these and other vital issues:
- What are the critical regulatory due diligence issues in health care transactions?
- What hurdles do counsel encounter when involving nonprofit and for-profit entities in health care transactions?
- What are the most effective processes for conducting due diligence in a timely and cost-effective manner?
