When a hospital files for bankruptcy, how do you comply with both HIPAA and the  Bankruptcy code? HIPAA, which is all about safeguarding patient information, and the bankruptcy process, which is all about transparency, seem to create irreconcilable and opposing forces at this intersection.

In this episode, Travis Vandell, CEO of JND Corporate Restructuring, and Marcus Helt, Financial Restructuring and Reorganization Partner at Gardere join me to discuss this issue.

Travis and Marcus have co-authored an article in the American Bankruptcy Institute Journal titled “Healthy Outcomes from HIPAA and Corporate Bankruptcy” in which they discuss the unique challenges that arise at this intersection, and creative solutions, based on their extensive experience, which allow for compliance and cost effective solutions.
