Book Review: Jelena Madir (Ed.), Healthtech Law and Regulation
While telemedicine and M Health Apps have been credited with increasing life expectancy and quality of life, the Coronavirus pandemic has illustrated many challenges in the efficient application of healthcare technology. For example, digitisation has been a successful addition to healthcare services but has also brought new and unforeseen problems such as outdated anti-virus or anti-malware software issues. Healthtech Law and Regulation addresses these new challenges, providing an overview of international treaties and European Union (EU) directives and regulations, as well as domestic European and United States (US) legislation; identifying gaps in existing laws and policies. Though primarily covering EU and US health law and regulation, this edited collection will be of interest to regulators and researchers in all jurisdictions.
