Webinar debates regulatory and data protection aspects of telemedicine
On September 28, the Center for Research in Law and Economics (CPDE) at Fundação Getulio Vargas’ Rio de Janeiro Law School, through its Advanced Center for Health Regulation Research (NAPS), will hold a webinar called “Telemedicine: Regulatory and Data Protection Aspects.” The event will be broadcast live on FGV’s YouTube channel, starting at 6 pm.
The webinar’s purpose is to discuss challenging regulatory issues regarding the use of digital technologies in the health area. Recently, because of the COVID-19 pandemic, the government authorized telemedicine tools on an exceptional and temporary basis. In addition, the General Personal Data Protection Law recently came into effect. This will be crucial for secure data sharing and storage, through appropriate, constantly updated information protection measures, in secure databases to guarantee protection and ethics for all.
The debate will feature the chief prosecutor at the National Health Care Regulatory Agency (ANS), Daniel Junqueira de Souza Tostes; Professor Cláudio Moura de Andrade Júnior, who is the coordinator of the hysteroscopy sector of the graduate program in minimally invasive surgery at Suprema University’s Crispi Institute and a board member of the Rio de Janeiro Regional Medical Council, responsible for its Technical Committee on Health Informatics and Telemedicine; and lawyer Walter Capanema, the electronic process and artificial intelligence coordinator at the Rio de Janeiro branch of the Brazilian Bar Association, a member of the association’s Data Protection Commission, a member of the Bahia State Court of Appeals’ Data Protection Working Group, and the innovation and education director of Smart3.
The moderator will be Professor Flavia Bahia of the FGV Rio de Janeiro Law School, who coordinates the institution’s Advanced Center for Health Regulation Research (NAPS).
