Digital health encompasses an ever-growing convergence of digitized data and digital solutions with health care delivery and payment, and is fundamentally transforming health care delivery, health care quality and innovation. As the doctor-patient relationship evolves beyond the in-person encounter, McDermott’s focused digital health teams work with our clients to develop and implement technologies that can improve access to medical services and engage patients in the management of their health while also meeting complex—and still evolving—regulatory considerations.
Drawing on our in-depth understanding of today’s rapidly evolving digital health environment, we counsel clients on the changing dimensions of health information technology (HIT), telemedicine, mHealth (mobile health), big data and data strategies, data privacy and security as they relate to HIPAA and state laws.
We understand all aspects of digital health, including its involvement and impact on today’s health care industry. We offer legal guidance on the formation, financing and governance of business entities, joint venture arrangements, and mergers and acquisitions. In addition, we support our clients in all aspects of development, reseller marketing and distribution arrangements, intellectual property protection and licensing agreements, systems integration agreements, internet and new technology issues, product liability matters, and employment and noncompetition agreements and related personnel issues.
Our digital health lawyers operate at the cutting edge of developing health care technologies. Uniting our depth of experience in health care transactions and regulation, the flexibility and responsiveness of our practice, and our commitment to anticipating changing health care needs, we help clients achieve their patient-care, operational and financial goals.
