Healthcare

Challenges from both a regulatory and management perspective put healthcare providers such as hospitals, nursing homes and medical research centers in a constantly changing environment.

Lydian assists clients with all aspects of hospital regulation (certification, programming, networking, doctor-patient relations, etc.) and provides similar support for individual practitioners such as doctors, dentists, nurses, paramedics and pharmacists.

Finally, Lydian represents its clients’ interests in the various forms of litigation they can encounter, especially before the Council of State. In this respect, Lydian also acts on behalf of interest groups and professional organizations before the Constitutional Court or before Parliament and other law-makers.

Healthcare professionals have to comply with a number of legal and disciplinary rules and obligations.

Lydian represents you throughout all phases of governmental proceedings and disciplinary actions (e.g. with relation to particular bodies within the Belgian National Health Service and councils of physicians/pharmacists). We use our vast knowledge and experience to help you address healthcare compliance issues and we counsel you on how to react when disputes of healthcare fraud or abuse arise.

We also have a special focus on HR in the healthcare sector, in particular on:

  • work relationships between you and healthcare institutions; 
  • work-time schedules; 
  • employment conditions; 
  • liability cases; and 
  • all privacy, professional confidentiality and HR-related issues.
