Drummond Woodsum's Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) Compliance practice offers sophisticated legal counsel for a rapidly changing healthcare industry.
We work closely with our healthcare provider clients, including hospitals, clinics, therapists, counselors, medical groups, and a variety of similar entities, to design, implement, and provide ongoing advice with respect to HIPAA compliance programs. We have performed in-depth and confidential compliance audits to help strengthen existing programs, policies, and procedures, and ensure that they meet the "effectiveness" standard necessary to provide protection in case of an investigation or enforcement action. We also prepare more general HIPAA compliance plans that help our clients ensure that they have the appropriate policies and safeguards in place to protect the privacy, portability, and security of patients’ protected health information.
If and when issues do arise, we assist our clients in assessing the need to make a voluntary disclosure where potential problems have been identified and, if a decision to do so is made, we provide support in the development and presentation of such disclosures. We counsel clients in a manner that ensures their compliance with current and anticipated statutes and regulations, while at the same time remaining sensitive to clients’ business realities and constituent concerns.
Our HIPAA Compliance team is comprised of attorneys with a unique combination of privacy, data security and health care industry experience.
We would like to hear from you, but please understand that we cannot represent you until we resolve conflicts of interest that may exist and agree to the terms of representation. Also, we cannot treat unsolicited information as confidential. Accordingly, please do not send us any information about any matter that may involve you until we send you a written confirmation that we represent you.
The best way for you to initiate a possible representation is to call us at either our Maine office (207-772-1941) or our New Hampshire office (603-433-3317). We will put you in touch with a lawyer suited to handle the general nature of your matter, and that lawyer will take you through our conflict of interest procedure. When you receive an engagement letter from that lawyer, you will be our client, and we may exchange information freely.
By clicking "continue", you agree that we may review any information you transmit to us. You recognize that transmission of such information is not solicited by us through this website, and does not initiate a prospective attorney client relationship, since, among other things, there is no reasonable basis to believe a confidential relationship may be formed by unsolicited email from a party we have not identified. Our review of your information transmitted in this manner, even if you submitted it in a good faith effort to retain us, and, further, even if it is designated as confidential, does not preclude us from representing another client directly adverse to you, even in a matter where that information could and will be used against you.
