Health Law


OUR Practice
Stradley Ronon’s health law practice represents a broad spectrum of companies in the health sector, including providers, payors, managed care organizations and companies that supply specialized services and products. Our cross-disciplinary practice has substantial experience representing clients in the health sector on transactional, litigation, regulatory, insurance, and investigation and enforcement matters.

Our integrated team helps our health care sector clients execute their strategic plans; assess, manage and mitigate risk; and succeed in litigation by providing sophisticated, solutions-oriented advice that is delivered in a clear and direct manner. Whether advising on a bet-the-company transaction or a more routine matter, we listen carefully to our clients and tailor our representation to best achieve the desired outcome.

Health Care

Regulatory Oversight
With a keen understanding of the unique regulatory and oversight requirements, we provide practical advice regarding compliance with all significant federal and state statutes and regulations, including the Stark and anti-kickback statutes, Medicare provider enrollment and recertification, health information privacy laws, regulations governing Accountable Care Organizations (ACOs), the Emergency Medical Treatment and Active Labor Act (EMTALA) and state laws governing each of these areas. We can assist companies in obtaining state licenses for a wide variety of facilities, including ambulatory surgical facilities, nursing homes, hospice agencies, urgent care centers, rehabilitation facilities and home care agencies. 

Health Information Privacy & Security
Our attorneys regularly counsel health sector clients on an array of Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) and other health information privacy and security compliance issues, including guidance to covered entities, business associates, hybrid entities, research organizations and sponsors, and health IT vendors. We have significant experience assisting clients in complying with rules governing electronic storage of protected health information and, where unauthorized access to protected health information is discovered, handling any required dealings with the U.S. Office for Civil Rights. One of our attorneys is an IAPP Certified Information Privacy Professional who can provide advice regarding compliance with U.S. privacy and data protection laws and risk mitigation practices.
