With mobile platforms more user friendly, and with computers, tablets and smart phones becoming more powerful, we see an increase in the offering of apps. Some of these apps are specifically targeted to assist individuals in the management of their health and wellness, while other apps are targeted to healthcare providers as tools to assist in the delivery of care.

Objectives of the Presentation:
  • When does your mobile app become a medical device?
  • When does FDA consider your mobile app a consumer product which it will not regulate?
  • How does FDA determine not to regulate one app versus another?
  • How does the new guidance impact industry?
  • What is FDA's position on the cybersecurity and mobile medical applications?
Why Should You Attend?

The FDA has released a guidance explaining how they intend to apply their regulatory authority to software applications intended for use on mobile platforms. They have defined what types of apps they consider a medical device. Apps that are medical devices must meet all FDA device requirements, however, FDA will not enforce their requirements on Mobile apps that meet the FDA’s definition of a medical device but pose a low health risk.

This webinar will explain how to determine if your app is a medical device and if it will be subject to FDA requirements. The FDA approval process for a new app will be explained including FDA software validation requirements which are more extensive than just testing performance. Cybersecurity is very important for mobile apps. The FDA requirements for cybersecurity in the app design will be explained.

  • What mobile apps are medical devices
