Course Materials

This CLE course will provide guidance to healthcare counsel for identifying and handling insurable risks in strategic partnerships and conducting due diligence when aligning with other healthcare and service providers. The panel will offer strategies for protecting electronic information during investigations and in connection with potential losses.


Healthcare organizations are developing and contemplating more strategic alignment agreements with other healthcare providers, professionals and vendors due to accountable care, health insurance exchanges, electronic health record regulations, and general business expansion.

With these strategic partnerships on the rise, counsel to healthcare organizations must understand the potential risks involved in partnerships. Beyond conducting due diligence for providers (and others) considering such partnerships, counsel must identify and respond to potential gaps and requirements for insurance provisions.

Counsel must negotiate and structure important insurance provisions for contracts and agreements with other healthcare professionals and technology service providers. In conducting the necessary due diligence, counsel must also be ready for the unique legal challenges presented by confidential healthcare information.

Listen as our authoritative panel examines the complex issues in strategic partnerships, including risk and coverage considerations, due diligence and sharing confidential electronic information. The panel will offer strategies for managing risks and protecting electronic information during investigations and in connection with potential losses.



  1. Risk and coverage considerations in strategic partnerships
  2. Due diligence in transactions
  3. Electronic health records and “Big Data”
  4. Best practices for protecting electronic confidential information


The panel will review these and other key questions:

  • What risks should healthcare organizations be aware of and evaluating when considering strategic partnerships?
  • What steps can counsel take to manage the risks associated with sharing confidential electronic information?
  • What can counsel do to avoid traps for the unwary in the due diligence process?

Following the speaker presentations, you'll have an opportunity to get answers to your specific questions during the interactive Q&A.
