German Regulations for Digital Health Startups
German regulations for Digital Health Startups
What is happening?
Health apps and health software offer a great wealth of opportunities. However, the use of “health data” by such apps and software may be restricted under German data protection law. Additionally, the use of medical documents calls for observance of patient secrecy.
If you work with health data and would like to learn about the legal requirements for digital health startups and the measures set by German laws, come join us at the workshop on German Regulations for Digital Health Startups provided by Dentons Europe LLP, the Legal Partner of Startupbootcamp Digital Health Berlin!
