Healthcare systems and providers and healthcare IT businesses turn to Beth Pitman for advice and guidance navigating healthcare privacy and cyber-security regulations, other healthcare regulations and government reimbursement program matters. Her previous experience as general counsel for a health IT company is a valuable asset for healthcare companies who appreciate her operational insight regarding the impact on their businesses of privacy and data security regulations and other healthcare regulatory and related contract issues.
Certified in Healthcare Privacy Compliance (CHPC), Beth advises a wide range of healthcare providers and businesses, including hospitals and healthcare systems, physicians, dentists, therapists, labs, provider management service businesses, outpatient services providers and HIT companies on HIPAA compliance, data security and technology licensing matters.
Beth's experience includes the development and ongoing management of comprehensive HIPAA compliance programs, drafting and negotiating business associate agreements, developing internal policies and workforce training modules for patient privacy and data security, and providing advice, guidance and representation in investigations before government regulators related to data breaches. She also provides advice to clients related to the frequent changes associated with the many federal healthcare payment programs. Her HIT-specific experience includes the drafting and negotiation of software licensing and services agreements and interoperability licenses and services, including data liquidity/data use contracts.
In addition to her HIPAA and HIT experience, Beth advises executive management teams and provides counsel on health care regulatory matters involved in mergers and acquisitions of healthcare providers and facilities, and technology, revenue cycle management and healthcare management services companies.
