Lisa Schmitz Mazur is a partner in the law firm of McDermott Will & Emery LLP and is based in the Firm’s Chicago office. Lisa maintains a general health industry practice, focusing on the representation of hospitals and health systems and other health industry providers.
Lisa’s representation of hospitals and health systems includes providing guidance on not-for-profit corporate governance matters, tax-exemption issues, conflict of interest compliance and overall corporate compliance effectiveness. In addition, Lisa regularly assists hospital and health system clients to develop and negotiate physician compensation programs, and prepare agreements with physicians and helps to guide governing boards and committees in the review and approval of such arrangements.
Lisa advises a variety of healthcare providers and technology companies involved in “digital health” – the intersection of health software applications, analytical tools, medical technology and electronic data assets enabled by the Internet and mobile devices – on the applicable legal and regulatory infrastructure, with a particular focus on telehealth, telemedicine, mobile health and consumer wellness programs. For example, Lisa has assisted numerous clients in developing and implementing telemedicine programs by advising on issues related to professional licensure, scope of practice, informed consent, prescribing and reimbursement. Lisa assists her clients to identify and understand the relevant legal issues and develop and implement practical, forward-thinking solutions and strategies that meet the complex and still-evolving digital health regulatory landscape.
Lisa also co-leads the Firm’s Digital Health affinity group, which brings together McDermott lawyers from within and outside the Health Industry Advisory Practice Group to develop thought leadership, share information and collaborate on best practices.
