Digital Health


Technology is quickly changing the way healthcare is delivered and recorded and paid for. Large employers in all industries are adding telemedicine/virtual care visits to their wellness plans; payors and PBMs are partnering with data analytics companies; providers who have implemented EHRs are now adding additional digital services; and technology companies in non-health industries are looking to pivot into offering healthcare technology services – and digital health specifically. As the digital health industry picks up speed, Dorsey’s Health Industry Group is keeping true to its promise to stay “Well Ahead” of industry changes.

With leading industry attorneys around the globe, Dorsey is uniquely positioned to assist in all aspects of the legal, regulatory, and business issues that arise from the use of technology to deliver and improve health care and wellness.
