Theme of our book-
“Healthcare Technologies and Law”
The rapidly growing innovative technologies in the Indian digital health sector are telemedicine, mobile health, health and wellness applications, medical imaging, big data and the Internet of Medical Things (IoMT); robot-assisted surgery; self-monitoring medical devices; electronic health records (EHR); healthcare service aggregation; targeted advertising; personal genomics and individualised medicine; e-pharmacies; cloud computing; cloud computing services (AI).
It is imperative that personal data be protected because of the frequent flow of information and personal data between service providers and patients on health issues and advice. For this, the Information Technology Act of 2000, the Data Protection Rules of 2011 and the Intermediaries Guidelines of 2011 have been made accessible. Despite this, however, no standards have yet been established to require the application of data protection and security measures. Bill 2019 for the Protection of Personal Data was first tabled in Lok Sabha on December 11th, 2019. The proposed legislation aims to safeguard the privacy of individuals’ personal data by creating a Data Protection Authority. Strict adherence to regulations pertaining to the safety, privacy, and confidentiality of patient health information is essential.
Moreover, more recently the Central Government itself has taken a step to digitise healthcare which has provided space for extended discussion. India’s Ayushman Bharat Digital Mission (ABDM) was inaugurated on September 27 with the goal of creating an inclusive and holistic model of health care for all citizens. Accessing and linking personal information with a unique ID to construct a long-term health history are among the goals of this project. The blueprint says that it aims to develop an ecosystem of linked databases of patients, health records, and hospitals based on the concepts of unique IDs, privacy by design, interoperable data, and open standards.
It is important for enforcement to consider privacy and infringement issues while analysing and interpreting data for market research, marketing, and regulatory exchanges.
Moreover, healthcare technologies are brought under the legislations governing intellectual property since, the medical equipment and various drug formulas require patent protection. The introduction and utilisation of AI and assisted tools in medicine, bring the algorithms and software under the purview of copyright protection.
