Innovation in healthcare occurs most often in pharmaceutical, medical device, medical equipment and medical supply segment of the healthcare industry. This innovation comes at a cost, as businesses that supply and distribute these products to healthcare providers and consumers must navigate a wide array of business and regulatory issues in their everyday operations.
At Duane Morris, our healthcare attorneys are experienced advocates and counselors who understand the opportunities and challenges of suppliers and distributors of pharmaceutical products, medical devices, medical equipment and supplies. Our attorneys work with our clients to help them understand state and federal regulations, apply for and comply with licensure or certification requirements, comply with privacy and confidentiality rules, negotiate and contract with manufacturers and group purchasing organizations, recognize and understand the implications of federal and state fraud and abuse prohibitions and respond to enforcement agency enquiries and audits.
Duane Morris also has experience representing a wide range of public and private suppliers and distributors of pharmaceutical products, medical devices, medical equipment and supplies, along with private equity investors in this innovative healthcare segment.
