Description

As health information technology (HIT) continues to grow and change the face of healthcare, investors are taking note. Private equity and venture capital firms are increasingly investing in up-and-coming HIT and mobile medical app companies, and larger companies are looking to innovate through acquisitions of HIT businesses. But these investments raise unique questions and require specialized due diligence. When acquiring a medical app company, are you buying the company, its technology or its data? If it includes the latter, who owns the data? Can the seller transfer data that may contain protected health information? What consents are in place? What notices are required? This session will use a hypothetical mobile medical app acquisition to examine the due diligence considerations of HIT investment. The speakers will look at the risks, challenges and regulatory considerations from both the seller’s and buyer’s perspective, as well as solutions and best practices.
