The U.S. Food and Drug Administration released today its much-anticipated final guidance on how it will oversee mobile health apps and devices. If you're inclined to read the whole document, it's here. If not, in a nutshell the FDA has clarified that it will not enforce its rules over apps that are intended for general wellness, like fitness or weight management.
It's good news for folks in consumer health, many of whom took to Twitter today to breathe a big old sigh of relief:
@chrissyfarr Minimal regulation on the tools that may move population health/wellness. 👍— Ernesto Ramirez (@eramirez) July 29, 2016
