On April 24, 2013, associate Kristi L. Wolff presented the Thompson Interactive webinar, "There's an App for That: Regulating Mobile Medical Devices." Ms. Wolff discussed the regulatory status surrounding health-related and medical device mobile applications, or MMAs. The line between apps that are useful tools for accessing health information and those that are considered medical devices can be unclear but is very important for developers and marketers of health-related apps. Ms. Wolff's topics included FDA's position regarding MMAs as explained in the draft guidance, the recent Congressional hearings on the topic, FTC's enforcement and recent statements regarding health-related mobile applications, and design considerations key to application development, such as privacy. Participants also had the chance to ask Ms. Wolff questions during the live Q&A portion of the webinar.
