Adam Greene, senior health information technology and privacy specialist at HHS' Office for Civil Rights, will join Davis Wright Tremaine, a Washington-based law firm, on May 16.
HHS IT specialist to join private-sector law firm
Greene, 35, spent the past five years at HHS working to administer and enforce Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act privacy, security and breach-notification rules, according to an e-mailed news release from the firm. As a health lawyer, Greene also created the model resolution agreement and corrective action plan for enforcing rules about HIPAA violations and negotiated the first formal HIPAA settlement.
"Adam brings an invaluable base of knowledge to our clients—an internal understanding of policy development and enforcement of HIPAA, health IT, and related regulations," Bob Homchick, chairman of Davis Wright Tremaine's health law practice, said in the release. "He'll be second to none when it comes to advising private-sector companies on building effective compliance models."
