Faced with increasingly complex privacy and security regulations related to patient information systems licensing, technology licensing and outsourcing relationships, healthcare providers throughout the United States rely on Waller’s health information technology attorneys for assistance. For more than 40 years we have helped a broad spectrum of providers of healthcare services navigate the complexities of health information technology, intellectual property and evolving federal regulations.
Three of the six largest investor-owned hospital systems in the United States rely on Waller for representation in Information Technology and Intellectual Property matters. Our attorneys have provided counsel in hundreds of software licensing matters within the healthcare industry in agreements ranging from $200 million to $1.8 billion. We also represent clients in agreements that may not have the same direct financial impact but are nevertheless critical components of plans to implement a parsed IT outsourcing strategy. The depth and breadth of our experience provides clients with a critical advantage when negotiating agreements between licensors, licensees, buyers, sellers and third-party hardware and software providers.
Healthcare clients also rely on our information technology experience in transactional matters. We understand the complex intellectual property aspects involved in these transactions related to software licenses, hardware contracts, outsourcing arrangements, confidentiality agreements and data security. Additionally, we represent healthcare information technology companies in corporate and transactional matters.
