Attorneys Scott Bennett and Marki Stewart recently broke down some of the health care community’s hottest legal trends in a Continuing Legal Education (CLE) seminar for the State Bar of Arizona.

Scott addressed key developments in privacy law, including the California Consumer Protection Act and the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) of the European Union. Both laws affect how companies throughout the United States collect and store people’s personal information.

Marki discussed key developments in the law related to telemedicine, including physician licensure issues, prescribing medications via telemedicine, reimbursement for telemedicine services, and federal enforcement actions related to telemedicine.
