Bradley Merrill Thompson, a Member of the Firm in the Health Care and Life Sciences practice, was quoted in an article titled “Decision Support Dangers: Who’s Responsible?“
Following is an excerpt:
Identifying high-risk clinical decision support systems is easy, but deciding how to make them safer and determining who is responsible for doing so is more difficult, attorney Brad Thompson of Epstein Becker Green told FierceHealthIT in an email.
Leaders and industry experts, including Thompson, gathered on Wednesday for day two of a three day event to discuss proposed health IT risk-based framework regulations.
Yesterday’s focus was CDS and the potential dangers of systems that, for example, connect to automated medical devices, Thompson, who serves as general counsel for both the mHealth Regulatory Coalition and the CDS Coalition, told FierceHealthIT.
