Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act-Compliant Merger and Acquisition Transactions


Pryor Cashman’s Corporate Group has structured, documented and closed many large M&A transactions involving proprietary databases. It is not unusual for those databases to include information, the use and dissemination of which is heavily regulated. One example is patient information protected by the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 (HIPAA).

Partner Jeffrey Johnson and one of the firm's summer associates, Amanda Stevens, have authored an article entitled “Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act-Compliant Merger and Acquisition Transactions.” In the article, which was published in the Bloomberg Corporate Law Journal (Volume 2, Summer 2007, Issue 3), Johnson and Stevens explore the complications HIPAA compliance can bring to sophisticated M&A transactions involving databases.
