February's issue of Digital Health Legal

Digital Health Legal is a monthly publication dedicated to exploring the key legal and regulatory developments impacting global digital health. Each month the publication provides indepth analysis from experts involved in the field, covering topics such as eHealth, data protection, telemedicine, mHealth and much more.

In February's cover article, Christian Lindenthal and Dr Daniel Misch of Bird & Bird LLP dissect the rationale to the CJEU's ruling in Snitem et al. v. France, which essentially addressed the question of when software qualifies as a medical device.

Elsewhere, Andreas Leupold, Lawyer at Leupold Legal, and Christian Tillmans, Partner at Meisterernst, provide insight into the use of 3D printing within healthcare, the recent recommendations issued by the FDA on 3D printing medical devices, and the lack of a suitable regulatory framework in Europe that accounts for the differences between 3D printing and traditional manufacturing methods.
