Medical Device Connectivity: HIPAA, FDA and IP Considerations

Events / Wednesday, June 14, 2017

On Wednesday, June 14, 2017, BakerHostetler hosted a complimentary CLE webinar: Medical Device Connectivity: HIPAA, FDA and IP Considerations

With increasing healthcare costs and the transition to value-based reimbursement, never has the need for connected medical devices been so great – and never have the pitfalls been so daunting. Join us for an overview of the regulatory and intellectual property landscape for this groundbreaking technology.

Our speakers summarized developments in compliance and security issues, FDA guidelines for premarket and postmarket management of cybersecurity, as well as FDA rules regarding software for medical devices and software as a medical device (SaMD).

In addition, IP considerations such as claim drafting strategies, design patents for GUIs and recommendations for layered protection of patient monitoring inventions were also discussed.

Presented by:
  • Hussein Akhavannik focuses his practice on portfolio management, patent prosecution and IP due diligence. He prosecutes patent applications in technologies related to the electrical, computer, medical and mechanical arts. Hussein spent almost four years at the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office as a patent examiner and as a legal intern for the Patent Trial and Appeal Board and the Office of the Solicitor.
  • With a background as a defense, regulatory, and registered patent attorney who has also worked as a registered pharmacist, Lee Rosebush provides his clients with legal counsel that is grounded in first-hand experience.
