Legal Aspects of a Healthcare Start-up

Hosted By: Docs and Hackers

Docs and Hackers is back in Mountain View! This time with a special conversation on the Legal Aspects of Starting and Scaling a Healthcare Business with Michael Esquivel, Stefano Quintini and Andrew Harper from Fenwick and West.

Healthcare is complex, the legal framework around it even more so. The healthcare team from Fenwick and West demystifies the legal aspects of a healthcare start-up. From broad legal topics like incorporation to very healthcare specific topics like HIPAA, legal nuances when you provide patient care, FDA - we'll try to touch up on it all. This will be a panel discussion along with plenty of time for audience Q&A.

Technology was supposed to improve healthcare. Unfortunately, it has increased physician work load and decreased doctor-patient time at a significant cost to the taxpayer. Docs and Hackers is a group of medical practitioners and technology builders who aim to reverse this trend and accelerate innovation in digital health.
