Digital Health

Leading the way to wellness.

As innovative technologies transform the delivery of healthcare services, Husch Blackwell is on the front line in advising clients on the attendant regulatory and legal issues. We help healthcare clients stay up-to-date on the laws regarding protected health information (PHI), intellectual property, regulatory concerns and more. We assist our healthcare clients with identifying opportunities in the implementation, licensing and management of their technologies, as well as the challenges involved in protecting their data and patients’ privacy.

Our guidance to clients in the digital health sector includes:

Data privacy, security and breach response

The use of digital medications, home-based medical devices, electronic patient medical record portals, wearables and mobile apps creates additional compliance requirements, potential for security and privacy breaches, and liability concerns. Our attorneys advise on risk assessment and mitigation, training and education, compliance, data breach notification and crisis management.

Licensing and software

The Husch Blackwell team negotiates and protects software and technology licensing for our healthcare clients. We protect their interests when they acquire and implement technology, and we provide counsel on critical issues of compliance, intellectual property, privacy and security.


We advise hospitals, clinics and physician groups on emerging telemedicine opportunities and help ensure their telemedicine services comply with federal and state requirements. Reimbursement, patient privacy, risk management and credentialing are other common areas of guidance.
