People

Kyle Gotchy works with leading hospitals, health systems, medical groups, technology companies, and related businesses in connection with regulatory matters, operational issues, complex contracting, investigations, and enforcement proceedings. He works closely with in-house counsel, leadership, and other business, clinical, and compliance stakeholders on matters related to the state and federal laws governing providers and suppliers, the physician self-referral (Stark) and anti-kickback laws, Medicare reimbursement, and the development of risk-  and value-based payment arrangements. Kyle also works with providers, retailers, and technology companies on the development, implementation, and operation of telemedicine services and other innovative digital health solutions. 

Kyle draws on the operational perspectives he gained while serving as Senior Counsel at Seattle Children’s Hospital and strives to help his clients develop practical legal approaches in furtherance of their key business objectives. His approach to client service is further informed by having completed extensive client secondments at one of the nation's largest health systems and later at a multinational technology company during the launch of its market-leading telehealth product. Prior to entering the legal profession, Kyle completed an internship at the EPA focused on children's environmental health and assisted with analytical and basic sciences research in leading academic and biopharmaceutical laboratories.
