Health Care Information Technology And Telecommunications Counsel

The nexus between technology and healthcare is rapidly becoming one of the key opportunities and challenges facing providers today. At Shackelford Law Office, PLLC, I regularly represent clients in the procurement, acquisition and management of information technology (IT) and telecommunications products and services, IT and business process outsourcing, and discovery solutions. From my law office in Lexington, I represent healthcare providers throughout Kentucky.

Every healthcare provider today faces the difficulty of managing information and responding to discovery in a world of ever-expanding electronically generated information. Privacy and security requirements complicate the matter, often competing with legal obligations to identify, preserve and produce information in response to demands for information, whether such demands pertain to litigation, regulatory requirements or internal investigations.

I commonly help clients as they navigate the complete information life cycle, from record creation through discovery responses. I work with clients to create practical, business-oriented solutions to the challenges relating to record retention, discovery readiness and discovery response.
