Every day, Elizabeth advises health care providers regarding regulatory matters, including licensing and certification, enrollment and participation in government programs, compliance, medical staff governance and peer review, and quality assessment and performance improvement. She particularly enjoys helping hospitals, laboratories, pharmacies, and other providers successfully navigate regulatory surveys, audits, and investigations – from preparing for scheduled audits and providing advice during surprise surveys, to developing robust corrective action plans that respond fully to regulators’ concerns.
Counseling health care providers, health plans, and others active in the health care sector regarding data privacy is another key aspect of Elizabeth’s practice. Certified in Healthcare Privacy Compliance, Elizabeth regularly aids clients in understanding their obligations under federal and state privacy laws, including HIPAA, 42 CFR Part 2, and the Minnesota Health Records Act.
When not working, Elizabeth can be found shopping a farmer’s market, flipping through a cooking magazine, trying a new recipe, indulging in foodie TV, or spending time outdoors—in the garden, or on a walk or hike. She also enjoys relaxing with her husband, their two sons, and their Australian Cattle Dog mix.
