“The MMA Roadshow”

Managing mHealth App Development Under FDA Regulation

FDA recently published its final guidance on mobile medical apps, and while helpful, the guidance leads to more questions. This workshop will focus on answering those questions for app developers in or close to FDA regulated territory.

We have selected some of the world’s leading engineering universities – in the US and in the EU – to be our partners in this program. We have sought out not only the best schools, but those located in population centers near where developers are working.

We will dive deeply into the regulatory issues associated with bringing new mobile apps into the healthcare space.

Locations include:
  • University of Illinois at Chicago
  • Johns Hopkins University
  • University of California San Diego
  • Stanford University
  • University of Texas at Austin
  • Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT)
  • mHealth Europe Summit (Berlin, Germany)

Over the course of a four hour program, we will examine topics such as:

  1. How to develop mobile apps that come as close to the FDA line as possible, but don’t cross over into regulated territory.
  2. For those apps that FDA does regulate, how to figure out the appropriate classification in a system that frankly hasn’t been updated in a long time.
  3. If your app requires premarket clearance, what predicates are available and more importantly what strategies are there for showing substantial equivalence.
  4. Practical steps for developing an FDA quality system that is nuanced to fit mobile apps, and is designed to be as economical as possible.
  5. In a global economy, what are the differences between the US regulatory system and the EU system, and how can a company efficiently enter both markets?
  6. From the perspective of seasoned executives, what are the management challenges you can anticipate in mobile app development in a regulated environment?

You will hear directly from the experts, including regulatory attorneys, regulatory affairs specialists, quality system experts, European law attorneys, experienced mHealth executives and of course, the FDA.

Who Should Attend

These workshops will focus on mobile medical apps issues that will help both the novice and experienced FDA regulatory professional alike.

2013RAPS – The Regulatory Convergence

September 28- October 2

Boston, MA

Every year, RAPS hosts The Regulatory Convergence, where people from industry, agencies and universities all over the world come together. They teach, learn, share ideas and make connections in a safe harbor environment, where the common denominator is an ambition to find out more and push things further.

These are your regulatory colleagues who work in research, clinical, pharma, medical devices, biologics, compliance, and at all different stages of the regulatory spectrum and product lifecycle. They’re specialists and CEOs, directors and statisticians. And The Regulatory Convergence is where they figure out how to turn drive into action.

Radcliffe Exploratory Seminar: Mobile Health

Bradley Merrill Thompson will join a panel discussion on FDA oversight at the Radcliffe Exploratory Seminar on Mobile Health.

This seminar explores how mobile health technologies, including “medical apps” for smartphones and tablets, might change health care in the United States, including how we deliver, measure, consume, pay for, and regulate health care. It examines the legal, regulatory, and ethical implications from the perspective of various disciplines, including law, medicine, government, and public policy. Several federal agencies are actively involved in the mobile health space, and Congress is considering multiple bills to confront these technologies. This seminar provides an intense two-day discussion among experts in these fields in the hopes of generating inputs to help guide future policymaking and scholarship.
