May's issue of Digital Health Legal

Digital Health Legal is a monthly publication dedicated to exploring the key legal and regulatory developments impacting global digital health. Each month the publication provides indepth analysis from experts involved in the field, covering topics such as eHealth, data protection, telemedicine, mHealth and much more. 

Highlights of the May issue include analysis from Pierre Desmarais, Lawyer at Desmarais Advocats, on the CNIL’s recent guidelines on password security in France, in which he shares his view on whether the guidelines could hinder the development of eHealth. Pierre voices his concerns that absolute rules on passwords in the eHealth sector might “stifle the market with disproportionate burdens.”

Dr Christian B. Fulda, Partner at Jones Day, provides detailed insight into the update to the European Medicines Agency (‘EMA’) guidance that was published in April 2017. Christian explores the scope of the contentious Policy 70 - the rules on the publication of clinical data for medicinal products for human use - and reviews how the guidance has been amended and expanded.
