Our team of attorneys and consultants understand the complex regulatory requirements and financial pressures facing health systems and physicians today. These pressures have led many organizations to hire in-house legal counsel. While having in-house counsel allows for efficient “real-time” solutions to many challenges, the frequency and complexity of issues may sometimes make it difficult for a sole general counsel or even a smaller in-house legal team to tackle every problem that might arise in a timely or comprehensive manner.
That is why Krieg DeVault and Integrity Health Strategies work together to offer a turnkey solution. Whether it is because of a temporary vacancy in your legal department, a workload surge due to a pending government audit or investigation, or as an interim step before adding another full-time in-house lawyer, we can craft a solution that fits both your needs and your budget.
A sampling of recent in-house projects include:
Negotiation of hospital service line co-management arrangement
Expedited internal audit of organization’s HIPAA policies and forms in preparation for a possible HIPAA phase 2 audit
MOB development with hospital and physician investor group
