Translate MedTech – EU Data Protection in Medical Device Regulation

Would you like to learn more about medical device regulations for digital technologies and their changing meaning under data protection?

This brief session will map out the relationship between data protection laws and medical device directive/regulation, explain the UK environment and cover contracts, routes to market and roles.

Find out how to know when you need a Data Protection Officer, the changing roles of being a controller or a processor, which can depend on your route to market, and when it is appropriate to rely on consent as the lawful basis for processing, and when it is definitely not.

You will hear some of the myths that surround NHS patients’ data including:

• cloud computing

• offshoring

• the Health and Social Care Network

Finally, you will discuss a few of the variations across Europe including what age constitutes a ‘child’.
