MMA Roadshow: A Workshop on Managing mHealth App Development Under FDA Regulation

mHealth Summit Europe

Berlin, Germany

Bradley Merrill Thompson and Kim Tyrrell-Knott, Members of the Firm, will copresent "MMA Roadshow: A Workshop on Managing App Development Under FDA Regulation" at mHealth Summit 2014, which runs from May 6 to 8.

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.


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 regulatory attorneys, regulatory affairs specialists, quality system experts, European law attorneys, experienced mHealth executives and of course, the FDA.

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