Helping hospitals fight against defective software from health IT vendors
Hospitals and health systems have never before been so dependent on Healthcare Information Technology (HIT) systems. Seamless patient billing, patient accounting and EMR software is key to 21st-century healthcare – and faulty software can cause not only significant damages to the hospital’s revenue, but a hefty cost of deinstallation.
When software fails, hospitals often believe one-sided contracts shield the vendor from liability. Bass, Berry & Sims Member Michael Dagley and team fight for hospitals in health IT vendor disputes – recently winning more than $100 million on behalf of a health system over a defective patient accounting system.
Hospitals can't afford a failed health IT software implementation or blown conversion. The stakes are too high. From ensuring contracts with vendors are fairly arranged to litigating a software dispute, Michael Dagley and other Bass, Berry & Sims attorneys are ready to assist with health IT software vendor liability.
