Digital technology has profoundly changed the medical/biomedical sector and more generally the world of healthcare. The rise of connected objects, telehealth tools (teleconsultation, tele-monitoring/measurement), interoperability, artificial intelligence, access and management of health data (big data) are as many innovations as they are distinct legal issues.
CIRCLE Law assists its clients specialized in the medical field (telemedicine platform, medical diagnosis, software, telemetry tools, connected objects, predictive analysis software).
Connected objects have revolutionized our daily lives; they collect, process and analyze data in real time to meet a specific purpose, an expected functionality.
Connected objects are present in all fields and concern both the design of connected physical objects (sensors, antennas, embedded electronics) with ports for interaction with their environment (sensors, antennas, embedded electronics), and the development of electronic communication networks to transport data from objects or IT infrastructures providing data storage and/or processing capacities.
CIRCLE Law assists a nebulous group of economic players from different sectors (retail, food, e-health, entertainment, etc.) who together make up this new market: designers and manufacturers of connected objects, operators and managers of data flow transmission networks, managers of data collection and processing platforms, designers of software interfaces between objects and users, and service providers who collect, analyze, and exploit the user data provided by connected objects.
The law intrudes into this ecosystem at all stages, whether it concerns the creation, manufacture, distribution or use of the connected object (patent, know-how, personal data, traceability, consumer law, intellectual property, etc.).
