This CLE webinar will provide guidance to healthcare counsel for leveraging big data to improve quality of patient care and reduce costs. The panel will offer best practices to minimize risks and overcome legal and regulatory hurdles when collecting and using patient data.


Big data provides insight to the healthcare industry, enabling the development of new assessment, identification and prevention methods in patient care. Healthcare providers, covered entities, business associates and others can leverage the use of big data in healthcare to control or cut healthcare costs and improve patient outcomes.

While the benefits of using data analytics can be significant, there are risks and compliance complexities associated with the use of big data. The chief challenge may be complying with HIPAA and state privacy requirements. Additionally, Stark, Anti-Kickback, antitrust and security issues may arise.

Healthcare counsel must be able to identify and address the potential legal and regulatory challenges facing covered entities, business associates and others using big data.

Listen as our authoritative panel of healthcare attorneys discusses the use of big data in healthcare and examines the legal and regulatory issues users of big data must address. The panel will offer best practices for overcoming the legal and regulatory hurdles, including HIPAA compliance, Stark and AKS compliance, and security issues.
