Alan Adcock Speaks on Digital Health in Thailand and Vietnam

Alan Adcock, partner and deputy director of intellectual property and regulatory affairs, recently joined fellow members of LAN, the Lifesciences Asia-Pacific Network, in a video podcast on digital health and telemedicine in the Asia-Pacific region.

In Episode #10 of On the Pulse featuring LAN – Digital Health in Asia-Pacific, Alan (speaking on Thailand and Vietnam) and lawyers from CMS (China), Atsumi & Sakai (Japan), and Yulchon LLC (South Korea), discuss the following issues:

  • a fragmented situation in APAC in terms of government policy and support for digital health initiatives
  • a lack of a clear definition of “digital health” in most jurisdictions, and a mixed regulatory environment, with a need to update the laws in many jurisdictions
  • how to deal with privacy concerns with the use of personal data with digital health technologies
  • how to protect the intellectual property associated with digital health innovation
  • developments in telemedicine in the APAC region and support for remote care and online consultations

The video podcast is available to watch online, free of charge, here. An audio-only version is also available here.
