Welcome to your first edition of the Digital Health Download Blog. Our mission is to provide substantive cross-functional analysis of noteworthy digital health industry developments. For decades, Arnold & Porter LLP’s FDA and Healthcare practice has been a leader in helping pharmaceutical, biotechnology, medical device, and diagnostic companies, as well as other healthcare entities, respond to complex regulatory and compliance challenges. The convergence of software, digital, mobile and medical technologies is changing the way consumers and healthcare providers (HCPs) manage health and treat disease. These products and solutions provide greater flexibility, connectivity, and information to patients, providers and government and private payors. While they present numerous opportunities to revolutionize healthcare, these technologies also present a number of legal and regulatory challenges that encompass issues such as litigation, privacy and cybersecurity, telecommunications, mergers and acquisitions, intellectual property, healthcare compliance and corporate governance. We have a long tradition of leveraging the knowledge, experience and know-how of attorneys across various disciplines and practice areas to maximize efficiencies and provide practical advice and assistance to our clients. Our editorial team and contributors will strive to provide news, information and thought-provoking analysis that reflect our cross-functional approach and diverse perspectives.
