Seth Bilazarian, MD's insight:

Very nice risk calculator - quick and easy to use.  A big advance ovr the cumbersome spreadsheet released by ACC/AHA.

FDA Device Surveillance to Tap App

FDA Device Surveillance to Tap App | Heart and Vascular Health | Scoop.it
The FDA is creating a largely automated surveillance system to monitor safety of high-risk medical devices, and has authorized a cellphone app for doctors to simplify reporting deaths and injuries to the agency.
Seth Bilazarian, MD's insight:

"There's an app for that."  Physicians are often criticized for not doing a better job reporting adverse events and this is largely because the method for reporting to the FDA has been burdensome and difficult. An easy to use reporting strategy from a smartphone will increase my reporting dramatically.  The speed of reporting and analysis by FDA for actionable items should be significantly shortened.
