FDA Action Plan?
Does anyone have any idea when the FDA will provide clearcut guidelines to developers of these devices? As you say, the creativity is there. Some clinicians are aboard and already 'prescribe' fitness trackers to overweight or diabetic patients. There are so many opportunities -- home health, telehealth, patient engagement, population management, pregnancy (especially teen or at-risk), etc. -- to use new and existing wearables that government roadblocks, while understandable to a point, are extremely frustrating. And not only to those who want to make money off them; they hold-up affects those whose lives might well be positively affected by tech that's ready to go.
