FDA issues final guidance on mobile medical apps

FDA issues final guidance on mobile medical apps | UX-UI-Wearable-Tech for Enhanced Human | Scoop.it

Here is the result of the FDA regulation evolution on mobile medical Apps. 

The FDA is focusing its oversight on mobile medical apps that: 

 

-are intended to be used as an accessory to a regulated medical device – for example, an application that allows a health care professional to make a specific diagnosis by viewing a medical image from a picture archiving and communication system (PACS) on a smartphone or a mobile tablet; 

 

-or transform a mobile platform into a regulated medical device – for example, an application that turns a smartphone into an electrocardiography (ECG) machine to detect abnormal heart rhythms or determine if a patient is experiencing a heart attack. 

 

Mobile medical apps that undergo FDA review will be assessed using the same regulatory standards and risk-based approach that the agency applies to other medical devices. 

The agency does not regulate the sale or general consumer use of smartphones or tablets nor does it regulate mobile app distributors such as the ‘iTunes App store” or the “Google Play store.”

A Pill That Tracks Your Health? The Reality Of The ‘Quantified Self' Movement

A Pill That Tracks Your Health? The Reality Of The ‘Quantified Self' Movement | UX-UI-Wearable-Tech for Enhanced Human | Scoop.it

Microsensors in your shoes compile data on where you go and what you do. Your workout clothes track your daily progress at the gym and tell you when to slow down or speed up. And as you sleep, a headband monitors your REM patterns.

A far-fetched sci-fi fantasy? Not at all. It's merely a glimpse into what might be possible through a movement called "The Quantified Self," which is part of the wider transformation being driven by the Internet of Everything (IoE).

Why the new HIPAA is good for mobile health developers

Why the new HIPAA is good for mobile health developers | UX-UI-Wearable-Tech for Enhanced Human | Scoop.it

There are two areas that offer encouragement to mobile health application developers.

 

The first is within the final omnibus rule itself and related to the breach notification rule where business associates now have greater flexibility to decide what is reasonably considered to be a breach. (...)

 

The second advantage (...) is related to the increased data rights given to patients , specifically their rights to be informed, obtain copies of, and request corrections be made to their information. Associated with this right is the ability to request their data be copied to a data repository such as a Personal Health Record (PHR).  If this PHR is managed by the covered entity then the data still falls under the rules of HIPAA. But if it is a private PHR, such as Microsoft HealthVault, and the operator is not acting on behalf of the covered entity, then once the data is transferred to this repository it is no longer covered by HIPAA. Instead, it is governed by whatever privacy policy the user consented to when signing up for the PHR.
