This program will address opportunities and consequences of innovation and privacy law as life science companies strive for increased patient interaction.  Innovations such as Artificial Intelligence (AI), Precision Medicine and mobile and always-connected devices, along with the European Union’s new General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) will have profound impacts on your business and how you collect, transfer and protect patient’s personal and health data. Implementing these innovations can create new opportunities for smarter patient segmentation, interactions and post-market data gathering.  However, without the proper compliance and data strategies in place, they can also put your company at risk for significant fines (up to 4% of a company’s global turnover).  
Attendees will learn how this technological era creates both opportunities and new legal consequences unique to life sciences businesses.  Attendees will leave with a list of best practices for reducing risk and maximizing the commercial and scientific impact associated with genetic, health and other sensitive personal data given today’s evolving regulatory environment.
