Three mHealth app categories the FDA will regulate, and 6 it won’t... | HIIDubai - Bio Watch | Scoop.it

To define what constitutes a mobile medical app, the FDA bent toward the familiar: Medical devices.

The agency explained that regardless of what platform a piece of software runs atop, “if a mobile app is intended for use in performing a medical device function, it is a medical device.”

The logic behind this conclusion is appropriately straightforward. The “FDA intends to apply its regulatory oversight to only those mobile apps … whose functionality could pose a risk to a patient’s safety if the mobile app were to not function as intended,” the agency explained.

For clarity’s sake, it broke out the three main categories of apps it intends to regulate:

Mobile apps that transform a mobile platform into a regulated medical device and therefore are mobile medical apps;Mobile apps that connect to an existing device type for purposes of controlling its operation, function or energy source and therefore are mobile medical apps; orMobile apps that display, transfer, store or convert patient-specific medical device data from a connected device and therefore are mobile medical apps.

Put another way, if it acts like a medical device, it will be regulated as such. So the FDA's final guidance document pointed to applications that can be used for disease diagnosis, cure, mitigation, treatment or, in some cases, prevention as prime candidates for its oversight.
