Reduce Regulatory Risk with Legal Services from Wise Carter

The transactions of healthcare providers span the same wide spectrum as those in other sectors of commerce, but contract terms that may be best practices in other business contexts can be illegal or fraught with regulatory risk is the healthcare industry.

A variety of state and federal laws and regulations often dictate the permissible provisions in transactions involving those in the healthcare business. Indeed, some contracts, such as HIPAA business associate agreements, are themselves required by law in situations where parties ordinarily would not choose to have contracts at all.

In light of these regulatory realities, properly structured healthcare transactions require legal counsel experienced with both commercial transactions and the special rules that apply to those transactions in the healthcare space.
