Technology has always been part of medicine. Digital health, AI, data analytics, and other new technologies present challenging legal issues for the companies that develop and sell these technologies and the health care institutions that buy and implement them. Often health care technologies companies buy technology to build their technology. Data is not technology and does not manage itself. When AI and data analytics are used as used as change agents, data and IT are combined to provide medical advances, and novel and complex issues come to the fore and must be addressed in the multi-use, multi-vendor, and multi-stakeholder environment that characterizes today’s health care institutions. Examine best practices for negotiating or renegotiating health care IT agreements; addressing intellectual property issues; handling AI and data, and tackling privacy and data security challenges.
