FCC, FDA and WWHI Meet to Progress Wireless Healthcare Reform

TMCnet, July 28, 2010

Great minds from across the country, from various industries, are coming forward to discuss the ways in which wireless broadband-enabled medical devices could be made more readily available.

"The joint FCC (News - Alert)-FDA public meeting is a vital first step in providing the regulatory clarity that is needed to spur investment and innovation in health care delivery. The relationship between FDA approval and FCC certification of wireless-enabled medical devices must be further delineated and expedited to overcome hurdles to innovation identified both by both agencies. While the venture capital community has been historically adept at finding and advancing solutions to unmet clinical needs, we must address what may be the most significant unmet need in health care: affordability."
