Amy M. Joseph


“Effective advising requires not just knowledge of the applicable law, but also understanding each client’s unique concerns and operational challenges to help craft workable solutions. And that requires truly listening to what they have to say.”

A trusted advisor and respected thought leader on cutting-edge health care issues, Amy Joseph counsels clients in the healthcare and technology sectors on a broad spectrum of regulatory and business matters, with a particular focus on helping her clients assess, develop and implement innovative business models in the health care industry. Amy works with digital health companies, health systems, investors, and other public and private companies to address their regulatory compliance and transactional needs, from seasoned health care stakeholders to newer entrants to the industry.  She collaborates with her clients to understand and evaluate their business goals before developing tailored, practical solutions to achieve those objectives.

Amy is well-versed in the corporate governance, data privacy and security, and scope of practice considerations facing the health care industry as it incorporates artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) solutions into clinical workflows.  Her practice includes structuring and scaling national telehealth practices across a range of clinical disciplines, including complex collaborative arrangements involving labs, medical device manufacturers, remote patient monitoring (RPM) solutions and pharmacies.

Amy spends much of her time working closely with clients on vetting and developing strategic affiliations, joint venture transactions, and other novel business arrangements, including developing value-based enterprises and otherwise identifying means to achieve further alignment among health care ecosystem stakeholders.  She also regularly  advises on related reimbursement issues with respect to federal healthcare programs, private payors, and self-pay business models, as well as developing compliance programs and advising on related protocols and best practices.   In particular, Amy regularly advises on physician self-referral, anti-kickback, and other fraud and abuse law matters applicable to her client base, as well as advising on patient privacy matters, including HIPAA, 42 CFR Part 2, and corresponding state level compliance.  Amy also regularly assists with internal investigations and assessing and responding to the results of such investigations, including developing corrective action recommendations and self-disclosures.

A sought-after speaker and prolific writer on some of the most complex and critical issues in health care law, Amy regularly shares her insights in publications and presentations across the country. Amy co-authored the American Health Law Association’s The Stark Law: Comprehensive Analysis and Practical Guide, and has also co-authored chapters in numerous other publications, including the American Bar Association’s Physician Law: Evolving Trends & Hot Topics telemedicine chapter, and a chapter addressing telehealth in the MCLE Massachusetts Health and Hospital Law Manual.
