During this program, our presenters will discuss how litigants and government investigators are focused on exploiting the informality and ambiguity of electronic communications to make their case. They will also explain how the sheer volume of electronic data can often overwhelm even the largest companies, with a tsunami of expense from electronic discovery.

Program Overview

“Look at the email” has become a rallying cry for the weaponization of electronic communications for politicos of all stripes. However, when litigation or government investigations arise, electronic communications also present staggering risks for hospitals and health systems. Unfortunately, these risks are often left entirely unchecked until it’s too late. 

Our speakers will provide concrete, practical steps that hospitals and health care systems can take to quell the risks posed by electronic communications in the litigation and government investigation context.

Program Objectives

At the conclusion of this session, the participants will be able to:

  1. Identify and discuss the risks posed by the informality of electronic communications (emails, texts, and social media) in the context of litigation and government investigations.
  2. Identify and discuss the risks posed by the volume of electronic communication data driving the costs associated with electronic discovery in the context of litigation and government investigations.
  3. Provide concrete recommendations so that hospitals and health systems can take immediate action to address these risks.
