Subcommittee on Communications and Technology discuss FDA regulation of mHealth Apps

The collision of worlds in the mobile health – or mHealth – market is a study in contrasts. The app economy is characterized by low barriers to entry, quick time to market, and the ability to adapt to quickly changing user needs. Medical devices, on the other hand, face a long and costly pre-market approval process at the FDA. We all want to ensure patient safety, but why would we treat mobile applications the same as a dialysis machine?
