Health Law Webinar: Health Industry Website Accessibility: 2019 Lawsuit Trends and Practical Steps to Reduce Risk and Promote Compliance for Websites, Apps, Portals and Connected Devices

Description: Lawsuits against developers, owners and operators of websites, apps, portals and devices for alleged discriminatory and “inaccessible” technology continue to evolve and explode in jurisdictions across the country in 2019. The health industry has been particularly hard-hit, and the National Federation of the Blind’s lawsuit against Epic and a related hospital was the highest-profile case towards the end of 2018.

In this webinar we will:

  • Describe what “accessibility” means on legal, technical and human levels

  • Summarize how courts are applying the ADA and other anti-discrimination laws to websites, apps, HR portals, “virtual” spaces and connected devices/Internet of Things

  • Describe practical measures to improve accessibility and reduce risk

  • Provide clauses and tips for vendor/developer contracts

CLE Credits: We have applied for Continuing Legal Education (CLE) credit for this program in Iowa and Minnesota.
