Health Law and Regulatory Investigations

Rosenblum Newfield represents multiple health care providers in regulatory investigations involving the New York Office of Medicaid Inspector General regarding extent, adequacy and billing of health care services, particularly on behalf of home health care agencies and in connection with Medicaid Managed Care plans.

Today, companies are storing and transmitting more and more data online. This reality presents a threat that most companies have not yet begun to address. Cyber Liability has become a new and growing area of business risk.

Particularly for health care-related organizations moving to electronic medical records (EMR) and complying with HIPAA regulations, breaches in digital data security can leave them open to serious litigation and penalties. In fact, all manner of commercial businesses need to plan for and implement digital security measures and mitigate cyber liability risk.

Rosenblum Newfield provides specialized services in this emerging area of the law. Its experience and expertise in medical liability defense provides a strong foundation for expanding into this new area of liability and risk management.

The firm has posted its own cyber liability policy for other firms to use as a model. In addition, it has had its own firewalls “hacker tested” to serve as a further example of successful digital data protection measures.

As its Cyber Liability practice involves both legal and technology expertise, on behalf of its clients, Rosenblum Newfield identifies top digital security firms specializing in enhancing security and performing testing to limit the risk of unwanted or untoward breaches. The firm’s cyber liability services fall into three primary categories:

  • Evaluation and Risk Assessment
  • Protection and Risk Management
  • Litigation Defense

EVALUATION AND RISK ASSESSMENT

Prevention is the best strategy. Evaluating where a health care practice, facility or business is vulnerable to cyber liability issues is the starting point of Rosenblum Newfield’s digital risk assessment services. They include:

  • Review by a qualified digital security firm of online security systems, firewalls and other technical aspects.
  • Review or development of policies that outline measures to be taken in the event of a digital data security breach, i.e. notification, mitigation and other actions.
  • Evaluation of cyber liability insurance, if any.
