CMS On the Pulse episode #3: Digital health law, regulations and developments – Part 1


The Global Life Sciences & Healthcare Sector Group is delighted to launch the latest episode in its new video/podcast series, On the Pulse.

The series brings together CMS lawyers and experts to discuss key industry topics impacting, innovating and disrupting the life sciences & healthcare sector.

In Episode #3 - Digital Health - Part 1, Nick Beckett discusses digital health with Rob Flaws (Dubai), Niall McAlister (UK) and Roland Wiring (Germany).

In this episode (Part 1), we discuss:

  • the need for collaborations and to deal with a potential clash of cultures in bringing the “digital” and “health” sides of the industry together
  • the use of AI in track-and-trace and the search for a vaccine for COVID-19
  • the lack of clarity of the definition of AI
  • whether the EC White Paper sufficiently provides a comprehensive proposal for regulation of AI, and whether new legislation is required
  • where liability rests in respect of software
