Bradley Merrill Thompson, Member of the Firm in the Health Care and Life Sciences practice, in the firm’s Washington, DC, office, was quoted in POLITICO, in “Senators Order GAO Review of ONC-Funded HIEs—Why Wearables Alone Can’t Make Us Healthy—FDA Puts Out Year's List of Guidance Priorities,” by Ashley Gold.
Following is an excerpt:
Bradley Merrill Thompson, general counsel for the mHealth Regulatory Council, said of the announcement: “This is a good — but not great — day for health information technology. Three of the guidance documents that we have been strenuously urging FDA to issue got moved from the B category last year to the A category this year. Those include: general wellness products, medical device accessories, medical device decision support software. We do wish the interoperability issue were also in group A.”
