Bass, Berry & Sims attorney Angela Humphreys authored an article for the American Bar Association’s (ABA) Business Law Today newsletter outlining key operational issues for healthcare companies to consider during the COVID-19 pandemic. Even in the midst of serving patients during this unprecedented period, it is important for healthcare providers to consider the business implications impacted by COVID-19.

In the article, Angela recommends healthcare providers be mindful of the following key operations considerations:

  1. Redouble Your Risk Assessment Efforts.
  2. Focus on Problem-Solving with Your Clients.
  3. Review Information Systems (IS) and Data Privacy Measures.
  4. Evaluate Financing Needs and Options.
  5. Determine whether CMS Waivers Apply.
  6. Analyze Force Majeure Clauses for Material Contracts.
  7. Manage Your Workforce.
  8. Be Prepared for Robust Diligence.
  9. Consider Impact on Deal Terms.
  10. Analyze Existing and Proposed Earnouts.

The full article, “10 Business Considerations for Healthcare Companies During the COVID-19 Pandemic,” was released by the ABA on April 17 and is available online.
