Sharing information and deploying information technology resources are increasingly important to successful treatment of individual patients and management of the health of patient or beneficiary populations. The wealth of technology options, financing mechanisms and regulatory requirements make this evolving area among the most complex in the business of health care – an area where knowledgeable, seasoned counsel can be a valuable asset, whether it involves licensing an electronic medical record system, co-locating equipment for a centralized data center, implementing cloud-based solutions for redundancy or additional operating capacity, licensing SaaS solutions for medical decision support, or the design and deployment of unique interfaces to permit diverse information systems to share data as part of a clinically integrated network or health information exchange.
