Whatever the legal challenge, our attorneys tailor our approach to the unique needs of our clients and work to proactively address compliance with state and federal healthcare regulations.
Risk management in the healthcare industry addresses the systems and processes that mitigate risk in healthcare institutions. Risk mitigation strategies include administrative systems, processes, and reports that protect patient safety and privacy. They also protect the healthcare provider’s assets, accreditation, reimbursement levels, brand, and standing in the community.
The lawyers at Ekblom & Partners work with our clients to proactively promote systems and processes that will not only safeguard patient safety and minimize risk but will also protect the organization from potential legal exposure.
In addition to providing legal advice to keep our clients out of court, we represent healthcare providers in complex litigation involving medical malpractice, employment law, premises liability, and other tort and contract claims.
