The Texas Health Services Authority has an enormous task on its hands: coordinate the implementation of strategic and operational plans for the health information exchanges (HIEs) that will provide access to electronic medical records throughout the State of Texas. Waller was recently selected to provide legal services to help the THSA achieve its mission.
Following a rigorous RFP process, Waller was chosen to provide counsel to the THSA less than two months after opening our Austin, Texas office. Waller will develop privacy and security policies that local HIEs can use to help ensure compliance with federal and state patient privacy regulations. Waller attorneys in Austin and Nashville will also negotiate state-level shared service agreements between the THSA and vendors selected to provide the interoperability services needed to facilitate the Texas HIEs.
