Glenn P. Prives, a partner in the firm’s Healthcare and Corporate Departments, will be a presenter for the live webinar “Due Diligence in Healthcare Transactions: Mitigating Risks,” to be presented by Strafford Publications on Wednesday, December 1, 2021 from 1:00pm – 2:30pm.
Due diligence, a necessary component of any healthcare transaction, will identify shortcomings in healthcare law and regulation compliance. It should mitigate potential exposure to liability and is vitally important in healthcare 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.
This program will guide counsel in healthcare transactions on due diligence measures that effectively identify and mitigate risks and liabilities. The panelists will discuss the legal issues to address in healthcare due diligence, including key healthcare risk areas and requirements, compliance programs, certificate of need, ownership changes, licenses, and permits.
The panel will offer best practices for conducting due diligence in healthcare transactions and will address these and other issues:
- What are the critical regulatory due diligence issues in healthcare transactions?
- What hurdles do counsel encounter when involving nonprofit and for-profit entities in healthcare transactions?
- What are the most effective processes for conducting due diligence in a timely and cost-effective manner?
Mr. Prives concentrates his practice in the areas of healthcare and corporate law. He represents a wide range of healthcare clients, including for-profit and not-for-profit hospitals and health systems, academic medical centers, physician groups, ambulatory surgery centers, home health agencies, ancillary service providers, laboratories, medical technology companies, telemedicine companies, medical billing companies, dental groups, skilled nursing facilities, behavioral health centers, healthcare management companies, and investment funds and private equity firms specializing in healthcare.
