RESPONDING TO PANDEMICS: Legal and Clinical Issues

March 26, 2020 

With increasing numbers of cases of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) globally and in the United States, on January 31st Health and Human Services (HHS) Secretary Alex Azar declared a national public health emergency. The emergency declaration of the HHS authorizes additional resources, enhanced federal powers, inter-jurisdictional coordination, and waivers of specific regulations. During crises, government has a special responsibility to thoughtfully balance public health protections and civil liberties.

This special lecture, co-hosted by the Illinois Health and Hospital Association, will bring together the perspectives of public health officials, lawyers, clinicians and academics to discuss questions such as:

  • How do public health systems around the globe and in the United States detect and respond to threats of pandemic disease?
  • What laws and regulations are applicable in a pandemic disease outbreak?
  • What laws and regulations must employers, including healthcare facilities, be aware of as they prepare their business contingency plans?
  • What rights do people infected with pandemic diseases have in regard to their privacy and treatment?

Mobile Health Apps and Other Health Software - What does the FDA Regulate? What Does it Not?

September 19, 2019

Mobile health apps and other health software play an important role in U.S. healthcare.  Healthcare professionals and medical institutions routinely use such technology in healthcare delivery.  Patients and other individuals increasingly use such products to manage their own medical conditions and wellness. 

This session will focus on the following questions, using hypotheticals to discuss key answers and bringing together the perspectives of law firm, industry and provider representatives:

• Under FDA law and policy, what types of mobile health apps and other health software does FDA actively regulate as a medical device?  What types does it not?

• What is the difference between an unregulated health “wellness” product claim and an FDA-regulated “medical device” claim?

• What FDA requirements apply to such products when regulated?

• Are healthcare professionals and medical institutions subject to FDA regulation if they create or modify such products?

 • What other legal issues arise from development and use of such products?
