Our attorneys in Stuttgart and Karlsruhe are specialists in the field of e-health
Legal issues relating to digitalization, data protection and IT in the healthcare sector
Our consulting services in the area of e-health cover all legal issues relating to the use of information and communication technology in healthcare. Here, we primarily advise providers of healthcare IT and medical devices, hospitals and other healthcare providers as well as health insurers, e.g., with regard to electronic patient records or health apps.
In addition to health data protection, we advise on issues such as the preservation of evidence in electronic documentation, the “ban on remote treatment”, medical product regulation, IT-supported cooperation between medical service providers and financing by payers. In this context, we also draft and negotiate contracts for special forms of health care integrated primarily by IT (selective contracts, pilot projects or other projects, especially but not exclusively in statutory health insurance). Legal support for medical quality assurance and research is also part of our portfolio. Advice on professional, social and competition law challenges of the IT environment in the health care sector completes our services.
