One hour of additional class time will be held remotely via Zoom in the form of a homework review session in July. Students are required to have a device with a working microphone, camera, and internet connection to be able to fully engage and participate in all aspects of the virtual classroom lectures, discussions and exercises. Attendance will be taken and attendance in all class hours is required to receive academic credit.
This course will explore the latest legal developments pertaining to the use of digital technologies in the delivery of healthcare, focusing on the following key areas of innovation: artificial intelligence (AI) and telehealth/remote patient monitoring. Because these technologies are developing at a faster pace than the laws and regulations meant to address them, this area of law is dynamic and constantly evolving. Lectures and class discussions will consider the various public health motivations for, as well as the legal and regulatory challenges to, adopting and adapting digital technologies in health care, with an emphasis on reimbursement, licensing, credentialing, liability, and privacy protections. The teaching strategies for this course will include readings, lecture, group discussions and mock hypothetical exercises.
