The lawyers at Horn Aylward & Bandy, LLC are experienced and highly adept at representing healthcare providers in both transactional and litigation matters. We provide a comprehensive range of services to healthcare providers and particularly to physicians and physician groups. We have expertise and experience in addressing matters such as:
- Anti-trust issues;
- HIPAA compliance issues;
- Third-party payor and managed-care contract issues;
- Physician recruitment and contract issues;
- Regulatory and statutory compliance issues;
- Confidentiality and non-competition agreement issues;
- Disciplinary investigations and/or administrative hearing issues; and Credentialing and/or licensure issues.
We also assist our healthcare providers, if necessary, in crisis situations that may arise such as EMTALA compliance matters and minor consent issues.
In advising our healthcare clients on regulatory and compliance issues, we often employ risk management strategies/techniques, along with a proactive mentality, to attempt to avoid litigation when possible. Our attorneys frequently lead in-house seminars for hospitals, nursing homes, and other long-term care facilities on reducing liability and risk in areas such as HIPAA compliance and patient care/safety matters. In addition, our lawyers have led presentations at seminars sponsored by local, state, and/or national professional associations, including such entities as the American Society of Anesthesiologists, the Annual Medical Device Seminar; and the Medical Group Management Association of Missouri.
