California AG urges mobile app companies to safeguard reproductive health data


As the U.S. Supreme Court inches closer to the end of its term and a decision in a Mississippi abortion law case that is expected to either limit or eliminate the precedent of Roe v. Wade, the California Attorney General has urged mobile health app companies to safeguard the reproductive health data of people who use their apps.

Paul PittsSarah Bruno, and Smita Patil discuss the AG’s request and how the broad protections of California’s Confidentiality of Medical Information Act impact the health information gathering and security for mobile app companies in this Reed Smith client alert.

Reed Smith will continue to monitor Supreme Court decisions as well as any state or federal responses to those decisions. If you have any questions about this topic or how the Court’s eventual opinion will affect your organization legally, please reach out to the health care lawyers at Reed Smith.
