A large percentage of our healthcare services revolve around cybersecurity, data privacy, and compliance under HIPAA. The widespread transition of sensitive healthcare information to digital formats that are largely accessible from mobile device can put patients and healthcare providers alike at risk. Our attorneys are up-to-date on the latest developments in cybersecurity and privacy regulations and can perform risk assessments, create preventative protocols, deliver training to staff and management, conduct internal investigations, and provide remediation measures if a breach does occur.

On the financial side of things, Barton often assists healthcare providers and manufacturers with mergers and acquisitions, offerings of promissory notes, tender offers, and other financing vehicles. Many of the companies we help finance are on the forefront of medical innovation, exploring areas of genome sequencing, digital therapeutics, online therapy, and diagnostic recognition technology.
