Mobile Medical Apps and FDA’s New Cybersecurity Guidance: It’s a New World


With mobile platforms more user friendly, and with computers, tablets and smartphones 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.

This webinar provides an overview to this fast-paced area. It will define "mobile medical app," and discuss when the app is just an accessory to a smartphone and when it becomes a regulated medical device. Medical Device Data Systems where data is stored and displayed are also discussed in addition to cloud computing concerns.

Who should tune in: manufacturers that create, design, develop, label, re-label, manufacture, or modify to create a medical mobile app software system from multiple components; distributors, and those entities that need to know how the FDA intends to regulate those software applications for intended use on mobile platforms; and physicians and their staff that use and implement mobile apps into their practice.

The live presentation of this program was approved for 1.0 hour general CLE credit in California and Illinois, and 1.2 general CLE credit in Missouri. CLE credit is no longer available for this recording.
