Hong Kong Medical Law Brief - December 2021 edition

Artificial intelligence (AI) is increasingly applied in many industries and sectors, particularly healthcare where its application can bring a number of benefits and opportunities. However, the advancement of this new technology also presents potential risks.

In this edition, we will examine the challenge for personal data protection in the application of AI technologies and how we can optimize its use to achieve the greatest benefits without compromising patients’ data privacy. Rapid development of this new technology also calls for changes to the existing regulation.

We will also share a High Court decision, where the Judge dismissed the Plaintiff’s application to claim the loss of entrepreneurial services by the deceased in managing the real estate properties which are inherited by the dependants.

We hope you enjoy reading this edition of the Medical Law Brief.

Sandy Cho and Christine Tsang
