Healthcare and Pharmaceuticals

Businesses in the healthcare and pharmaceutical industries face complex legal and business challenges in meeting government and public expectations for how they collect, use, and transmit individually identifiable health information and personal data. Our team works with healthcare providers, insurers, pharmaceutical companies, clinical trial sponsors, health data vendors, patient assistance programs, and a wide variety of other affected entities to ensure their compliance with the broad range of federal, state, EU, EU Member States', and international health information privacy laws and regulations. Those include the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 (HIPAA), the EU Member States' laws implementing the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), the US-EU Privacy Shield Agreement, and the expanding number of state laws governing health privacy.
