What To Expect From FDA's Approach to Regulate Medical Software - Webinar

  • ID: 4899983
  • Webinar
  • September 2019
  • Region: Global
  • 90 Minutes
  • Compliance Online
Why Should You Attend:

In response to the rapid growth of digital healthcare, FDA has developed a streamlined regulatory pathway for approving medical software which is creating opportunities for life science and healthcare companies including pharma. FDA has advanced a regulatory framework called the Digital Health Pre-Certification (Pre-Cert) Program which is currently in a pilot testing phase. This approach aims to make reviews of digital health products more efficient by rewarding those companies who have been assessed and evaluated by the FDA as having a “robust” culture of quality and organizational excellence for the purposes of developing digital health products. Approved companies will be permitted to have their products reviewed in a streamlined manner, thereby reducing the review time for the products by focusing on what the product is rather than what it does. This would then be paired with real-world health analytics product performance analytics and user experience components, requiring the company to track how the product is being used and to quickly address issues.
