HLB Webinar: Technology Contracts: From Negotiation to Litigation With Your HIT Vendor
November 18, 2014
10-11:30 am Pacific Time; 1-2:30 pm Eastern Time

Please join Hooper, Lundy & Bookman, PC (HLB) for an interactive webinar designed to address the thorny issues that arise in negotiating contracts with vendors relating to health information technology (HIT).  We will discuss how to identify  and the circumstances in which pursuing litigation against such vendors may be necessary to ultimately further your institution’s HIT needs.

During this webinar, we will:   

  • Provide an overview of common issues that arise before and during the negotiation, amendment, and/or renewal of vendor HIT contracts.
  • Identify common pitfalls, such as “boilerplate” provisions regarding remedies and damages, that put a vendor at a significant advantage in potential or actual litigation.
  • Explain why it is essential to include clear “specifications” for any and all software or service components to be provided by the HIT vendor.
  • Discuss ways to work with a HIT vendor that is not meeting expectations, including informal and formal mediation to resolve disputed issues.
  • Provide strategies for pursuing litigation or alternative dispute resolution avenues against a noncompliant HIT vendor.
