First Thursday Club: Software as a Medical Device: The New Frontier

event information
Thursday, 1 February 2024
8:30am - 9:30am AEST
Live session through Microsoft Teams

Software is transforming how health care professionals detect diseases, prescribe medicines, recommend treatments and generally manage the health care of their patients.

This new frontier in medicine allows patients to play a more active role in managing their health care, eliminate poor outcomes often attributed to human error, and fast track innovation.

On the other hand, there remain risks with incorporating technology into health care and shifting decision-making from humans to computer programs. There are also new hazards which arise in the form of technology, product and cyber security risks.

To kick off our First Thursday Club series in 2024, BN’s Rob Samut and Anna Crawford will examine the regulation of software as a medical device and the extent to which legal liability exposures will shift from human error and negligence to product liability and cyber claims.
