Typical clients are physicians, physician groups or other health care providers that are developing or expanding physician-oriented health care projects. Current major projects include assisting physicians, hospitals and other health care providers across all practice areas and settings in understanding and responding to the impact of the Health Care Reform Law and, more specifically, Accountable Care Organizations (ACOs) and Electronic Health Record (EHR) initiatives. Other projects range from large physician networks to medical home models, ancillary services and ambulatory surgery centers to large joint ventures involving physicians, hospitals and privately funded national investor groups to traditional physician office practices to. The legal issues involved also cover a broad range of federal and state laws such as the Anti-Kickback Law, the Stark Law, HIPAA, HITECH antitrust law, the myriad of billing rules and regulations as well as general business and tax planning and representation.
