PHOENIX (July 10, 2013) – Attorney Kristen Rosati, a shareholder of the national law firm Polsinelli, has assumed the office of President of the American Health Lawyers Association (AHLA). The AHLA has over 12,000 members and is the nation’s largest educational organization devoted to legal issues in the health care field.

Rosati, a member of Polsinelli’s health care practice (the fourth largest in the country), is a national thought leader in the electronic health industry. She will use her term to advance outreach to younger members; increase support for existing programs in the areas of leadership, training and mentoring; expand the use of technology and social media in providing benefits to members; and continue the tradition of collegiality for which the organization is known.

"I am excited to assume the role of President of AHLA at this important juncture in health care law.” said Rosati. "Creating a strong foundation for AHLA’s next generation of lawyers as well as continuing to support the unique programs that distinguish AHLA as the leading health care organization for lawyers in the country is an honor that I am proud to accept.”

Rosati has been an active member of AHLA for many years, serving on the organization’s Board of Directors and Executive Committee, and as Chair of the Programs Committee, Chair of the Finance Committee, Chair of the Professional Resources Committee, Chair of the Quality Council, Chair of the Health Information and Technology Practice Group, and Chair of the HIT Think Tank.

"Kristen has enormous respect among the healthcare bar because of her deep expertise in health information and technology, her prodigious work ethic, and her commitment to collegiality among her peers,” said Peter Leibold, Chief Executive Officer of the American Health Lawyers Association. "Kristen is leading the Association in a direction that will provide significant benefit to members and continue the organization’s recent membership growth.

In her legal practice at Polsinelli, Rosati heads up the "Big Data” initiative. She plays a key role in assisting hospitals, physicians and other health care providers migrating to electronic health records as they tackle the legal complexities associated with HIPAA compliance, electronic health records roll-outs, health information exchange, data sharing for research and clinical integration initiatives and ACO’s, and clinical research compliance and clinical trials contracting.

"Kristen’s leadership in AHLA will not only benefit the organization, but it will also serve as a model for all of Polsinelli’s lawyers as we look for ways to be more in tune with our clients and the industry generally. Our health care group is full of thought leaders who have had the good fortune to work with our clients who are innovating in healthcare in ways that couldn’t even be imagined, let alone implemented, a few short years ago.” said Matt Murer, Chair of Polsinelli’s health care group. "Kristen’s leadership in AHLA brings another facet to that collective experience and broadens and deepens the perspective that we bring to solving our client’s problems.”

Rosati earned her law degree, cum laude, from the University of Michigan and her B.A. from the

University of Michigan, magna cum laude. She clerked for the Honorable Thomas Tang., U.S.

Court for the Ninth Circuit, and the Honorable Earl Carroll, U.S. District Court, District of

Arizona. She has been selected for inclusion in Best Lawyers in America for Health Care (2007-

2014). Ms. Rosati was recently selected as one of Arizona’s Most Influential Women in Business, 2013.

Rosati is a good source for reporters working on stories about:

  • HIPAA compliance and privacy
  • Data sharing in collaborative research and other efforts to improve care
  • Use of health information and bio-specimens for research
