Learn about the current state of the No Surprises Act, challenges in compliance, and how to navigate the law.

As G2 Intelligence’s 2022 Lab Institute Virtual Event approaches, get to know the legal, laboratory, and healthcare industry professionals who will be presenting in November.

Danielle Tangorre, a partner with Robinson+Cole, will be presenting on “The No Surprises Act: Updates and Lessons from 2022.” Danielle will discuss recent legal challenges to the No Surprises Act, additional guidance from CMS, and what it all means for your lab or company. From this presentation, you’ll learn the current state of the law, challenges in compliance, and other guidance to help you navigate the law.

Read more about why Danielle chose a career in law, her interests, and what she’s looking forward to most about participating in G2’s Lab Institute for the first time.

Q: What made you choose this career?

A: Even from a young age, my attention was drawn to the legal field (despite no lawyers in my family!). Over the years, I fluctuated on what type of law I wanted to pursue. However, when I attended the University of Virginia for my undergraduate studies, I took a bioethics class and fell in love with the intersection of science, ethics, and the law. I knew I had found my passion and wanted to pursue a career in the health law field. After finishing my graduate studies in law and bioethics, I pursued a clinical ethics fellowship at an academic hospital. That practical, on-the-ground experience has guided me in my career and shaped the areas I have tried to focus on when representing clients. The intersection of technology, science, ethics, and law in the laboratory space was particularly interesting.

Q: What is one important skill you think all leaders should have?

A: I believe that active listening is the basis of being an effective leader. It is essential to not only effectively communicate with your team, but without the ability to understand what is happening with your team and meet them at their level, communication, trust, and empowering your team fails.

Q: What hobbies or interests do you have outside of your job?

A: I love to be outside with my family and dog, doing whatever activity suits the season. Part of being outside dovetails with my love of travel, whether it is to the mountains or to a bustling city.  I’m also a foodie and love to try new restaurants.

Q: What’s the best piece of advice you’ve ever received?

A: It may sound cliché, but the saying “there are two (if not more) sides to the story” resonates with me. It reminds you that you need to actively listen, understand the needs and goals of the person/client and that the answer is dynamic. When providing regulatory advice, not only do I have to assess the goals and needs of the client but navigate the myriad laws, both federal and state, and attempt to evaluate how a regulator may view the proposed actions. It also serves me well for fact-finding and guiding clients. 

Q: What do you like most about attending/participating in events like the G2 Intelligence Lab Institute? 

A: While I have not previously had the opportunity to attend the G2 Intelligence Lab Institute, I am thrilled to do so. Events like this allow me to hear from others in the industry, see what is going on at the ground level and continue to know the practical side to aid my advice. It is always good to hear from other knowledgeable people and take the opportunity to learn and see different perspectives.
