Cove Legal’s Health Sector Update

For our clients in the health care sector these articles may be of interest to you:

  • With the increased use of health and medical apps, as well as tougher data breach and privacy legislation, businesses in the health sector are finding themselves increasingly vulnerable to attack. Hackers are now actively targeting the health sector in order to gain a patient’s sensitive medical information.  Managing the security of the data you hold is key.  You can read more here.

  • The ACCC has warned businesses that non-disparagement clauses in contracts may be considered unfair terms.  Clauses that control or prevent a customer from making a public comment about the business is likely to be unfair under Australian Consumer Law.  Please contact us if you have any queries about your contract terms.

  • With the use of influencer agreements prevalent in the health care sector, choosing the right brand ambassador is key. The following article provides a good overview of the risks and realities of the brand ambassador.

Cove Legal is experienced in helping our health care sector clients navigate through the highly regulated waters of that sector. We have helped countless healthcare service providers address these challenges to leave them free to focus on their business.  Call us to find out how we can help.
