Understanding both the technical and regulatory requirements of health care database systems consisting of protected patient information can present uniquely complex challenges. This is especially true in the context of pharmaceutical litigation. The resulting information created from these cases often involves unusual data types, stemming from events including clinical trials, sales, adverse events and FDA filings.
With Epiq, clients have access to industry-best technology and data analytics capabilities. Our expert consulting team will guide you to make better informed decisions for business and legal matters.
eDiscovery for Healthcare
Data leaks have the potential to be disastrous — of all of the security breaches recorded in 2018, nearly 30% were in medicine or health care. Protected health information (PHI) is the second most commonly exposed type of data and, in the event of a breach, organisations must disclose all known information about the breach to affected patients. In an ever-changing landscape of strict data compliance regulations, organisations who mismanage confidential PHI are open to the risk of costly litigation as well as irreparable damage to their reputation.
Our best-in-class HIPAA compliance training has prepared our 600 eDiscovery employees to be well-versed in all data related to the healthcare industry, allowing us to create workflows for clients that will secure and protect all PHI within their digital environment.
Epiq has deep experience applying advanced analytics to eDiscovery matters for the benefit of an its health array of health-related litigated matters, regulatory reviews and internal investigations. Our proprietary applications care clients, using artificial intelligence in over thousands of legal matters in recent years, spanning an array of litigated matters, regulatory reviews and internal investigations. We provide non-technical attorneys with platforms to review, redact and produce complex data drawn from our proprietary enterprise systems.

With Epiq, clients can manage their costs and maximize their data security by minimizing resources spent implementing corrective actions, reducing the severity and volume of any quality incidents.
