John W. Kaveney, a partner in the firm’s Healthcare Department, will be on the faculty for the live webcast “Regulatory Developments in the Healthcare Industry: What’s New and What Lies Ahead.” The program will be presented on Tuesday, September 13, 2022 from 12:00 pm to 1:00 pm (ET) by the Knowledge Group.
Health systems have rapidly evolved to adopt convenient, virtual, and customer-centered care services. The goal is to leverage technologies, such as remote patient monitoring (RPM), artificial intelligence (AI)-based processes, and machine learning to aid in smoother and more streamlined healthcare delivery. However, the adoption of digital transformation requires a proper regulatory framework, particularly in monitoring and evaluating results. While these innovations bring more convenience in delivering healthcare services, they also raise issues on data privacy and health equity. Thus, policymakers are considering stricter regulations to ensure the quality of care.
This program will provide a comprehensive overview of the recent regulatory developments in the healthcare sector, offering best practices in developing and implementing corporate policies to ensure compliance.
Key issues that will be covered in this presentation include:
- Healthcare Regulatory Developments
- Leveraging Technology in the Healthcare Sector: Legal Implications
- Challenges and Critical Issues
- Explore Compliance Strategies
- What Lies Ahead
Mr. Kaveney focuses his practice in the area of healthcare law, representing a range of clients that includes for-profit and non-profit hospitals and health systems, academic medical centers, individual physicians and physician groups, ambulatory surgery centers, ancillary service providers, medical billing companies, skilled nursing and rehabilitation facilities, behavioral health centers and pharmacies. His practice in the healthcare field encompasses advising healthcare clients on corporate compliance matters, including the implementation of new, and the assessment of existing, corporate compliance programs. He also assists healthcare clients with compliance audits and investigations, as well as guiding clients through the self-disclosure and repayment processes. Finally, he provides general legal advice concerning compliance and regulatory matters under state and federal healthcare laws.
In the area of information privacy and data security, Mr. Kaveney advises healthcare clients on issues arising under the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) and the Health Information Technology for Economic and Clinical Health Act (HITECH). This includes the implementation and assessment of privacy and security policies and procedures to ensure the proper protection and utilization of protected health information both by healthcare providers and the business associates with which they contract. In addition, he represents healthcare clients in investigating, reporting, and remediating information breaches and the liability such breaches create under various information privacy and security laws.
