Welcome to the Williams Mullen Health Care Data Aware blog, a blog devoted to the protection and security of health care data! As this is the inaugural post, we wanted to introduce our practice and what HIPAA and health care data privacy and security mean to us.
The Williams Mullen Health Care practice group supports health care providers of all types and sizes, including physician practices, health care systems, long term care facilities, and home health agencies, across the spectrum of their legal needs. Our website, www.williamsmullen.com, fully describes the services that Williams Mullen attorneys provide to the health care industry and can introduce you to the members of the team.
Luckily for us and our clients, we have attorneys who have a special place in their hearts for HIPAA and all things health care data privacy- and security-related. The Health Care Data Aware blog will showcase important current events, explain key concepts in HIPAA and other related regulatory areas, and generally highlight why data privacy and cybersecurity are fast becoming critical issues in health care.
So again, welcome! We are excited to be regular contributors to the body of knowledge around this important topic, and we hope that you will follow us as we bring you the latest in the world of health care data protection.
