Electronic communication and other technologies continue to impact every aspect of our lives, including healthcare.
Patients in Canada can receive medical appointment reminders, advice, testing and treatment through phones, computers and other devices. Physicians direct surgeries and perform procedures remotely. Healthcare records are increasingly electronic and integrated.
We provide advice on regulations, policy development and compliance procedures regarding mobile technology (apps), telehealth, electronic health records, patient direct access, electronic health records and data security.
In terms of contracts, we advise on structuring health information network provider agreements, fees and billing arrangements, and outsourcing contracts for technology and business process providers.
As patients travel more and expertise is sought around the world, our lawyers identify regulatory issues and risk management strategies relating to the provision of cross-border medical advice, diagnostic tests and remote delegation of controlled acts.
We act for private and public health sector organizations as well as non-profits and corporations whose activities intersect with the system.
Fasken is recognized for our large team, deep experience and trusted relationships with a wide range of clients in each of our regional markets, as well as national-level expertise. We share ideas and collaborate with clients wherever and whenever we can.
