Product Description

With new apps and devices being developed and put online daily, it's no surprise that legal scrutiny and standards are a step behind and trying to catch up.

 

 Apps that provide medical advice, support diagnosis or treatment and/or engage physicians or health care providers raise many traditional regulatory compliance issues such as licensing law issues, medical information privacy and security, and fraud and abuse and self referral laws. 

As if that’s not enough, if the application turns the mobile device into a diagnostic tool, FDA or other governmental approval may be required.

Get examples of how mobile device applications are starting to be used in medical practices. Join healthcare attorney, Wayne J. Miller, for this 60 minute look at the regulatory issues that can arise if a provider is creating an app or providing services for the app developer. Wayne will also address critical issues to consider if the app is intended to help diagnose a problem or offer medical advice. 

Take a look at some of the topics that will be discussed: 

  • Stay clear of state medical licensing board violations
  • Important points to address in application notices and disclaimers
  • Terms for proper user consents 
  • Avoiding HIPAA violations with respect to user medical information 
  • Deals with app designers: fraud and abuse and Stark law compliance
  • Apps that require FDA review and approval 
  • Critiquing actual medical app examples
