Medical malpractice attorneys are anxiously awaiting the launch of Apple Watch, since the device claims to offer diagnosis and treatment advice for users. A misdiagnosis and/or wrong treatment could lead to mega bucks lawsuits against Apple Corp.
NewsMax reports that, "Apple Inc. faces questions by Connecticut Attorney General George Jepsen over privacy protections for users of the company’s watch, which includes features such as health tracking, unveiled last week as part of its lineup of new products."
Jepsen is quoted as saying that, “When new technologies emerge in consumer markets they inevitably lead to new questions, including questions about privacy. Asking those questions and engaging in a proactive dialogue about privacy concerns before a product comes to market is an effective and mutually beneficial way to ensure that consumer privacy is protected.”
As reported by NewsMax, "He said he would ask Apple if it will review privacy policies for apps, and if it intends to enforce policies requiring it to reject apps that offer diagnoses or treatment advice without regulatory approval."
Apple Watch customers store their confidential medical data on iCloud, which could be vulnerable to hacking.
