Health Law 2.0

The Health Law Session at Spring Fling 2012 - Health 2.0 Matchpoint Boston

Storified by David Harlow � Wed, May 16 2012 15:09:42

On Monday, May 14, 2012, The Health Law 2.0 session kicked off Health 2.0's Spring Fling in Boston. Some tweets from the session will give you a taste of the issues we discussed: telemedicine; fraud and abuse; privacy, security and data breach notification rules under HIPAA and HITECH; regulation of mobile health apps by the FDA and other agencies.  We packed a lot into a one-hour session and enjoyed engaging with the attendees on these issues.

First, the advance press:

David Harlow will be speaking during our special Health 2.0 Law session in Boston. First, he answers some... 2.0
