Speakers/Faculty:
R. Gregory Cochran, MD, JD

Dr. Cochran received his MD from Georgetown University and completed two years of surgical residency there. He practiced as an emergency medicine physician for several years before receiving his JD from the University of Pennsylvania Law School in 2000. He was a senior editor of the University of Pennsylvania Law Review and was recognized by the Order of the Coif for his academic achievement. Dr. Cochran has spent the last 14 years practicing many aspects of healthcare law and uses his medical training and experience to counsel his hospital, health system, medical foundation, surgery center, medical group and physician clients on peer review, transactional and health care regulatory matters. 

After law school, Dr. Cochran worked for Foley and Lardner and Latham & Watkins, approximately four years each, and he is currently a partner in the Chambers recognized health care practice group at Nossaman LLP, where he structures and negotiates hospital-physician contracts and other healthcare transactions and has thus acquired a comprehensive understanding of, and experience with, all aspects of provider-physician relationships, including the federal anti-kickback statute, the Stark and state anti-referral and fee-splitting laws, tax-exemption laws, and the corporate practice of medicine doctrine. He also represents medical staffs and individual physicians in peer review investigations, credentialing, corrective action and hearings, and medical staff and governing body bylaws issues. 

Dr. Cochran counsels clients on all aspects of the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) and California health information privacy and security laws, including compliance, breach notice obligations and response to accusations from the Office for Civil Rights and the California Department of Public Health. His expertise includes hospital licensing, Medicare certification, health facility accreditation, Emergency Medical Treatment and Active Labor Act (EMTALA), bioethics, medical records and consent.

In addition, Dr. Cochran has authored and co-authored numerous healthcare related articles including “Electronic Health Records Donations: Proposed CMS and OIG Rules Revise Stark Exception and Anti-Kickback Safe Harbor,” Bloomberg BNA Health IT Law & Industry Report, July 1, 2013 and “Lessons On Peer Review For Calif. Hospitals And Physicians,” Law360, June 27, 2013. He is also a frequent presenter for healthcare and legal industry organizations.
