Healthcare Law Fundamentals for In-House Counsel HIPAA, PHI, PII, OCR, oh my! What You Need to Know About Federal Healthcare Privacy Laws

Event Description

Many In-House Counsel are corporate generalists and are often called upon to weigh in on matters that require specific subject matter expertise.

 

Health care law is one of those subjects that frequently arises outside of the traditional healthcare company context. For example, In-House Counsel for organizations that provide services to hospitals, doctors’ offices, treatment facilities or pharmaceutical companies may be called upon to advise the organization regarding HIPAA patient privacy matters and review Business Associate Agreements.  It would be great to rely on outside counsel when these questions arise, but that is not the reality for most when time and cost are priority considerations.

 

With that in mind, In-House Connect is thrilled to offer programming featuring Radha V. Bachman, Partner, FisherBroyles LLP, and Elena Kohn, Associate Regional Chief Legal Officer, AdventHealth, representing both the private practice and in-house healthcare law perspectives. In this dynamic, fun, and informative presentation, Radha and Elena will focus on healthcare privacy (aka HIPAA), traditionally the most common health care law-related issue that arises for in-house counsel. Radha and Elena will be answering some of your most burning questions:

 

– Is it HIPPA, HIPAA or HIPPO – What do all those letters stand for and when do they apply?

 

– CE, OCR, BAA, PHI, PII – what do those acronyms mean? What are the special privacy rules and regulations with respect to PHI and PII?;

 

– How should we approach and analyze BAA Agreements? What are the legal obligations of entities that are defined as Business Associates, and is there any room for negotiation?

 

– What regulatory bodies are involved in enforcing these regulations and, as a non-healthcare company, what exposure do we have for noncompliance?

 

While answering these questions, Radha and Elena will help drive things home by providing examples, case studies and representative enforcement actions involving non-healthcare companies doing business with healthcare organizations.

As the daughter and sister of physicians, she is uniquely aware of the intersection between clinical, business and legal objectives in health care.

On behalf of hospital and senior living clients, Radha provides counsel regarding system operations, joint venture and transaction structuring, physician employment and contracting, federal and private payor issues, HIPAA, licensing matters, and tax exempt issues. She also represents physicians and physician organizations of all sizes in structuring and executing deals with third party investors and private equity organizations, provider-to-provider mergers and acquisitions, corporate document preparation, Medicare revalidations, and general contract review. Radha is experienced in state and federal licensure, enrollment and permit filings and represents clients with the preparation of necessary applications through final approval.

Radha’s expertise extends to state and federal health care regulatory matters. She regularly helps health care clients develop legally compliant relationships, taking into account the myriad governmental and payor requirements. On behalf of her clients, Radha has participated in the Stark Self-Disclosure Protocol and interacted with CMS to achieve favorable settlements for clients under the protocol.

After receiving her law degree, Radha spent six months as an education fellow at a matriculation school in rural India. As a fellow, she developed and directed an intensive spoken English workshop for elementary school teachers and implemented long-term methods for advancing computer literacy among village students. Radha is conversant in Gujarati, the state language of Gujarat, India.

 

A graduate of University College London and Stetson University College of Law (both with honors), Elena has spent her entire legal career in the healthcare space, having worked for BigLaw and in-house.  She understands the challenges businesses face when navigating the ever-changing healthcare regulatory landscape.  At AdventHealth, Elena is responsible for advice and counsel to AdventHealth Medical Group in the West Florida Division on healthcare legal issues, including physician contracts, practice acquisitions, corporate matters, and federal and state law.  She has two children and loves fine-tuning her debate skills with her young daughter. For an extra challenge, she takes on her teenage son – and sometimes wins.
