Digital Health - the intersection of software applications, analytical tools, medical technology and electronic data assets with the delivery of and payment for health care - is having profound effects on all facets of the health care delivery system. Digital health is changing the ways providers deliver care and the ways in which patients access care, and empowering patients with “consumer-like” tools, inviting into the health sector a new generation of companies and innovators that specialize in digital solutions.

Consider, for example, how basic connected devices are changing the ways in which the millions of Americans with diabetes receive health care. Diabetes patients can now download data directly from their personal insulin meters to their smart phones and set up medication alerts and reminders, track their intake of food, integrate this information with weight and cholesterol management recommendations, and transmit all of this valuable health information to a variety of different medical professionals in real time to allow them to reach their patients and make any necessary adjustments before rather than after problems arise. On the other end of the digital health spectrum, artificial intelligence and machine-learning tools are reading retina scans of diabetes patients to automatically identify diabetic retinopathy, a leading cause of blindness among adults.

Bernadette Broccolo and Lisa Schmitz Mazur, both partners with McDermott Will & Emery, will explore the various legal issues surrounding these rapid technological advances.
