Reed Smith not only assists our pharmaceutical and medical device clients with their current legal challenges and opportunities, we look around corners to anticipate the next industry disruptor – and to help our clients navigate the legal issues that come with it.

For our life sciences clients, the Internet of Things is clearly a game changer. That’s why we’re pleased to be offering a free CLE webinar this Thursday, November 9 at 12 p.m. ET on “The Internet of Things’ Impact on the Health Care Industry: Diagnosing the Dangers with Disruptive Technology.”

Traditional health care delivery systems have fully integrated Internet of Things (IoT) devices into their processes, which has led to increased efficiencies but also heightened exposure to new risks. As IoT technologies continue to innovate at an accelerated pace, IoT is also on the verge of significantly disrupting the traditional processes of health care delivery and giving rise to heightened risks.

This webinar will provide those in the health care industry with an overview of the current legal exposures involved with IoT use, including: regulatory implications, security, privacy, and litigation risks; and liability insurance as an additional protective measure. It will also address the expected concerns with near future applications.

The webinar is presumptively approved for 1.0 general CLE credit in California, Illinois, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Texas and West Virginia. For lawyers licensed in New York, this course is eligible for 1.0 credit under New York’s Approved Jurisdiction Policy. To register for the free webinar, please click here.
