Healthcare Information Technology

Healthcare providers, software developers and investors turn to Waller for advice and guidance on the rapidly advancing and increasingly critical area of healthcare information technology.

Waller's multidisciplinary team of intellectual property, corporate and regulatory attorneys provides vital assistance in licensing, distribution and outsourcing arrangements, transactional matters, and patient privacy and data security issues. Three of the six largest investor-owned hospital systems in the United States, along with many midsize healthcare organizations, rely on Waller as their primary outside counsel for information technology and intellectual property matters because our experience provides a critical advantage with software and systems licensing, intellectual property due diligence and more. Our attention to detail and strategic guidance are key elements in both transactional matters and day-to-day operations.

Our legal services include:

  • Negotiating agreements between licensors, licensees, buyers, sellers and third-party technology providers involving software, hardware, outsourcing arrangements and confidentiality agreements
  • Guiding clients through business formation and growth, equity and debt financings, and negotiation and execution of strategic and private equity transactions involving health information technology
  • Advising on patient privacy and data security and compliance matters, healthcare compliance and other regulatory compliance issues
  • Structuring policies and practices for industry consortia 
  • Reviewing copyright and patent licenses (including software and database licenses) with respect to assignability following mergers or acquisitions
