Practice Area: Healthcare

Disruptive and transformational change is impacting health care delivery, not just because of health care reform but because of an aging population, obesity, physician shortage, and consumerism. Technologies in the form of telemedicine, healthIT and mobile health are addressing these changes and helping to contain the rising cost of healthcare associated with them.

Wheelhouse Partners help clients throughout the entire spectrum of health care expertly navigate today’s challenging, legislative, regulatory, and policymaking environment. Clients include global biotechnology and pharmaceutical companies, medical device companies, innovative diagnostic, clinical, and research laboratories, academic medical centers, investors, health app and medical software developers, and stakeholder coalitions and associations.

Our consultants have been involved in nearly every major Federal health care initiative in the last two and a half decades, and have extensive experience representing clients before most sources of Federal health care law and policy. These include Congress, the White House, the Department of Health and Human Services, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, the Food and Drug Administration, the Centers for Disease Control, the National Institutes of Health, the Department of Defense, and the Veterans Administration.

We provide strategic advice and counsel on the breadth of issues related to virtually every major Federal health care initiative facing stakeholders in the health care marketplace, including product development and approval, coverage and reimbursement, intellectual property and issues relating to emerging technologies such as digital health, telemedicine, nanotechnology, and biosensors.
