Take Care of Your Health…Data Privacy

While momentum continues to build around what a regulated consumer health data privacy landscape looks like and U.S. states take varying (and often overlapping) steps forward, the environment remains shrouded in shades of gray. Many non-healthcare focused companies don’t even realize that they may be subject to new state data privacy laws. On this webinar, panelists will share the latest trends and new laws in the digital health privacy space, discuss an analysis of recent FTC scrutiny in the digital health space and proposed Health Breach Notification Rule, and provide valuable best practices and practical compliance solutions on how to get up to speed, and stay there.

While businesses can promote and advertise the benefits, all messages reasonably conveyed must be supported by a reasonable basis, which for health-related claims requires competent and reliable scientific evidence. On this webinar, panelists will provide guidance on how to adequately support a health or wellness claim and will discuss best practices for such claims in your marketing.
