“Digital Health is the future. It is permeating every aspect and sector of health and life sciences industries. It is a key ingredient for innovation in care delivery and payment, population health management, biomedical discovery, and real-time translation of those discoveries to support precision medicine,” said Bernadette Broccolo. “In this book, we raise considerations that are critical for anyone looking to harness the power of these new technologies. Whether you are a health care provider or payer, a pharmaceutical or medical device manufacturer, a biotechnology company, a clinical laboratory, an information technology company, or an interested investor, ‘The Law of Digital Health’ will help you navigate the road ahead.”Order The Law of Digital Health Today
Published by the American Health Lawyers Association, “The Law of Digital Health” addresses the core, highly interrelated dimensions of the digital health ecosystem and the complex legal and regulatory landscape surrounding it.
“If Digital Health leaders take only one message away from this book, it should be that there is a path forward for the development and implementation of digital heath programs and solutions,” said Lisa Schmitz Mazur. “Our hope is that the book will be an essential guide for digital health innovation—a tool for leaders across industry sectors and in both established and emerging companies—as they continue innovating and creating solutions for the future.”
The book provides an overview of the digital health ecosystem; explores digital health innovation opportunities and their value propositions; reviews current and evolving legal and regulatory frameworks, theories, interpretations, and policy and enforcement in the public and private sectors; and provides practical planning and implementation strategies to achieve a balance between the benefits of digital health innovation opportunities and the associated legal and regulatory risks.
