Medical Institutions

Medical Institutions such as hospitals, nursing homes or medical care centers are caught between stringent legal requirements on the one side and the need to be economically successful as full-valued business enterprise. During the last ten years, the legal demands on healthcare institutions have increased significantly, non-compliance with these requirements can have severe consequences.

We have far-reaching experience regarding the advice of healthcare institutions in all regulatory and social law aspects, also across sectors. In addition, we are specializing in the assessment and implementation of legal specifics of healthcare institutions in M&A-projects.

Our services particularly include:

  • Support with respect to market access of the institutions (e.g. inclusion in the German States’ hospital plan, conclusion of care agreements in the rehabilitation and nursing home sector, proceedings at admission committees)
  • Social law issues (e.g. legal support regarding DRG, conclusion of care rate agreements, reimbursement of innovative products vis-à-vis payers)
  • Compliance law issues (e.g. referral management in healthcare institutions, cooperation with outpatient care services, drafting and review of custom-fit templates with cooperation and drafting of institiution-own guidelines regarding compliance issues)
