The LA Offices of Alston & Bird present
Health Care Fitness & Medical Mobile Application Roundtable
Wednesday, June 21, 2017
7:30 a.m. Registration/Breakfast
8:00-9:00 a.m. Discussion
With the advent of health tech and the use of mobile apps/texting to communicate with health care providers and friends about health and wellness, the issues of privacy, Internet of Things, and cybersecurity are front and center.
Many companies do not appreciate the unique issues that surround these apps. For example, for the collection of medical information of California residents, care needs to be taken to avoid violating California’s Confidentiality of Medical Information Act that carries with it penalties of $240,000 per violation. Also new global directives regarding privacy and cybersecurity arising from the General Data Protection Regulation (effective 5/25/18) in Europe and the Chinese Network Security Law (effective 6/1/2017) dictate what information needs to be disclosed to consumers and what behavioral tracking data can be collected and stored.
This roundtable will bring together leaders in the mobile, app/hardware developer, e-commerce, cloud, fitness, nutrition, entertainment, health care, and employer health and wellness plan community to discuss best practices, lessons learned, and innovations for excelling in the creation of a Privacy by Design, Defense in Depth strategy for medical mobile health tech stakeholders.
