At Dewitt, it is not enough to simply know health care regulation. To provide the kind of counsel our clients need in today's health care world takes a more creative, multi-disciplinary approach. Our approach focuses on all aspects of the health care business: health regulation, compliance, business transactions, contracting, employment, ERISA, litigation, strategic planning, intellectual property matters and legislative relations, to name a few. Our services are cost-effective and client-focused with a deep understanding of the business of health care, as well as the recent trends and complexities our clients face every day.
Our attorneys have provided key regulatory and business counsel in many of the largest health care transactions in the Upper Midwest. For example, the merger of a hospital system with more than 10 hospitals, hundreds of employed physicians and more than 1,000,000 health plan members. We have assisted in the creation of dozens of integrated health systems, as well as Accountable Care Organization (ACO) structures and contracts. Our experience includes acting as general counsel for the largest health care compliance association in the world, with more than 15,000 compliance officers working around the globe.
Day-to-day, we help our clients create effective compliance programs, conduct extensive internal investigations, implement new fraud prevention strategies, and act as board counsel in Medicare and Medicaid initiatives in dozens of states. When needed, we also defend our clients in employment matters and complex class action litigation. With respect to intellectual property advice, our attorneys have worked closely with many organizations on important and new health care innovations.
In sum, we are known as creative problem solvers who know the business of health care. Our clients depend on us to help address the most complicated trends in health care today. Let our health care team help you be more successful in today's complex health care world.
