The American National Standards Institute (ANSI) is pleased to announce that the next ANSI Caucus Luncheon, to be held Tuesday, March 6, will feature James C. Pyles, principal and co-founder of the Washington, DC-based law firm Powers Pyles Sutter & Verville PC. Mr. Pyles will discuss the public policy landscape with respect to health information technology and privacy and data breaches against the backdrop of the forthcoming ANSI / Shared Assessments / Internet Security Alliance report, The Financial Impact of Breached Protected Health Information: A Business Case for Enhanced PHI Security, and recent changes to Europe's data protection rules.

Mr. Pyles has more than 40 years of experience in litigation, counseling, and lobbying in the field of health law and policy. Upon graduating from law school, he served for six years in the Office of the General Counsel for the U.S. Department of Health, Education, and Welfare, where he received the department's Distinguished Service Award for successfully handling complex Medicare litigation.

Mr. Pyles has crafted major pieces of health care legislation in many areas covered by the Medicare Act. He was a principal designer and author of the Independence at Home program enacted with bipartisan support as part of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act of 2010. He was also involved in shaping the privacy measures in the HIPAA Privacy Rule and the HITECH Act.

Mr. Pyles' expertise encompasses the legislative and regulatory aspects of government and private health insurance coverage and reimbursement; the legal aspects of acquisitions, mergers, joint ventures, and networks; and the law pertaining to fraud and abuse. He writes and lectures frequently on health reform issues and appears periodically on national television as a health care commentator.

Sponsored by ANSI, the Caucus will be held on Tuesday, March 6, from 11:45 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. at the National Press Club (529 14th Street, NW, 13th floor) in Washington, DC.
