In July 2011, FDA issued a draft guidance on Medical Apps that set out the agency’s approach to regulate apps – even as thousands of such apps were being developed and downloaded by users.  Just over two years later in September of 2013 – after collecting and analyzing input, FDA released a final guidance regarding its approach to regulating medical apps.

Study: Online Consumer Health Engagement Expanding

Study: Online Consumer Health Engagement Expanding | Life Sciences Commercial | Scoop.it

Consumer use of health websites and other online tools to collect information about conditions and treatments is not a new trend, but now consumers are looking to broaden their health activity online, according to Manhattan Research. The healthcare market research and advisory firm has released its Cybercitizen Health U.S. 2013 study that shows consumers are using Internet resources to support healthcare decision-making and to manage conditions. The study surveyed 8,605 U.S. adults online and on the phone in the third quarter of 2013.

According to the study, 45 percent of online U.S. adults with a chronic condition reported that the Internet is essential to managing their disease or condition. Monique Levy, VP of Research at Manhattan Research told Med Ad News Daily that patients are not replacing physician guidance or orders with online research. “We think that this is just broader move toward consumer or patient participation in their care,” she says.

In addition, the study found that online content and services influence how consumers approach health management for themselves and their dependents, with 44 percent of online consumers agreeing that the Internet is essential for their health and medical decision-making.
