privsec922Davis Wright Tremaine LLP partner Louisa Barash will address the legal concerns and risks associated with wearable health technologies in a webinar on September 24 Wearable health technologies provide a great deal of benefits to consumers, health providers, and employers who offer wellness programs to their employees. From fitness bands that help individuals track their exercise progress and sleep patterns to glucose monitors that allow real-time measurements of patients’ blood sugar levels, wearables have the potential to drastically reshape how individuals monitor their health on a day-to-day basis and how their healthcare is assessed and delivered. Given the sensitive nature of the data that these devices collect, Davis Wright Tremaine partner Louisa Barash will examine some of the key legal issues surrounding these new wearable technologies in a webinar entitled “Legal Issues and Risks in Wearable Health Technologies”. As part of Davis Wright Tremaine’s 2015 Health Care Webinar Series: What You Need to Know, this presentation will focus on the legal issues that touch wearable health devices, including intellectual property, consumer protection, product liability, privacy, and data security, and will offer insights on what is on the horizon for this emerging space. Companies, healthcare providers, and other entities and individuals curious about these issues should register for the webinar here. The webinar will take place at 10:00 a.m. PDT on September 24.
