This training on FDA regulation of mobile medical applications is designed to provide attendees with an overview of the U.S. Food and Drug Administration's oversight of certain medical and healthcare mobile medical applications ("apps") designed for use on smartphones and other mobile computing devices. Attendees will learn to distinguish between those apps requiring FDA review and those not subject to regulatory oversight.
Why Should You Attend:
Today, mobile medical apps are used for a variety of reasons that include helping consumers manage their own health and wellness, and helping health care providers improve and facilitate patient care. This webinar is designed to provide attendees with an introduction to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration’s oversight of certain medical and healthcare mobile medical applications ("apps") designed for use on smartphones and other mobile computing devices.
In July 2011, FDA published a draft guidance outlining the small number of mobile apps the agency plans to oversee—those medical apps that could present a risk to patients if the apps don’t work as intended. In the published guidance document, FDA proposed to oversee mobile medical apps that are (1) used as an accessory to an FDA-regulated medical device, and (2) transform a mobile platform into a regulated medical device. This webinar will provide an overview of FDA’s regulation of mobile medical apps, and help attendees distinguish between those apps requiring FDA review and those not subject to regulatory oversight. Additionally, it will clarify the regulatory responsibilities of those who manufacture regulated apps.
