Garlington, Lohn & Robinson, PLLP's experienced hospital and health care law group provides legal services to a broad range of health care providers, including physician practices, hospitals and individuals in all matters related to privacy in the health care industry and the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA). Compliance with HIPAA requirements is a challenging area for many medical providers in Montana and throughout the country. It is important to consult with an experienced attorney in the initial start-up phase of a health care company, in order to avoid violations.
Our attorneys can help you put the proper training and privacy policies into place to ensure your company is in compliance with HIPAA and other health care regulations.
HIPAA Investigations and Violations
When a provider or another party is under investigation for possible HIPAA violations, hiring experienced legal representation can be critical to the outcome. Most violations involve employee misconduct such as releasing patient information to family members or others without authorization, and improperly managing confidential documents resulting in unsecured medical information becoming available online or in other public locations.
If your organization has already been found in violation of HIPAA, our attorneys will take immediate action to help minimize the consequences and remedy the situation.
