Connected healthcare – connected to legality?

Brought to you by The Legal Group

Technology is revolutionising healthcare. In this interactive SIG you will hear from a connected healthcare company, who describe issues they have been confronted with alongside legal experts who will suggest ways to ensure that your products are fully compliant.

Registration for this event is now closed.

About the event

Traditional medtech companies are reacting slowly to the emerging connected healthcare opportunity. This gives digital technology companies a clear opportunity to enter – and define – this rapidly growing market. Before they do, though, they need to understand and address the peculiar legal and regulatory issues that their products will encounter in this highly regulated sector.

With the now finalised General Data Protection Regulation looming on the horizon, fines of 4% of annual revenues for breaching the new rules, enhanced rights for individuals and emboldened regulators, it is essential for wearable solutions to be designed to ensure compliance with the new regime

The event will include speaker presentations, round table discussion and business networking opportunities.

Welcome and Introduction by Anthony Waller, Partner at Olswang LLP


Braci's multipurpose platform; Juma El-Awaisi, chief marketing officer of Braci

This presentation will talk about how Braci has managed to build its multi purpose sound recognition platform and describe some of the legal issues it had to tackle and some issues it is still dealing with.


Data protection issues in the context of wearables; Ross McKean, head of data protection practice, Olswang LLP

January 28th is European data protection day. This year, the date has particular significance with the now finalised General Data Protection Regulation looming on the horizon. With fines of 4% of annual revenues for breaching the new rules, enhanced rights for individuals and emboldened regulators, it is essential for wearable solutions to be designed to ensure compliance with the new regime. In this session, Ross McKean, head of data protection at Olswang, will consider what the new rules mean for providers and users of data collected from wearable technologies.


Doctors and baristas, pacemakers and coffee machines; Ken Munro, security writer and speaker, Pen Test Partners LLP

Internet enabled and connected medical devices have more in common with dolls and kettles than you might think.
In this presentation you’ll see why device manufacturers need to wake up and smell the coffee regarding their dangerously poor security.
