ONC to Congress: EHR adoption is widespread, but health IT progress is still stifled
- Despite HIPAA, patients still lack the ability to access health data and that makes it harder to manage their health and shop around for medical care

- And payers often lack access to clinical data about populations of covered individuals

FDA targets De Novo path to shepherd medical software through Pre-Cert
Author David Lim @LimOpinion
Published Jan. 8, 2019
- FDA issued the third iteration of its Working Model for its Software Pre-Certification Program on Monday, outlining plans to utilize the De Novo pathway in the pilot program aimed at testing a regulatory model where firms are pre-cleared to market medical device software.
- Traditional marketing submissions will still be required for firms making Software as a Medical Device (SaMD), but the agency said additional legislative authority from Congress may be needed to enable direct market entry for low-risk products in the future by precertified manufacturers.
- A proposed Pre-Cert pathway made up of an "excellence appraisal," review pathway determination, streamlined review and a real-world performance plan will run in parallel with FDA's traditional review process for each pilot test case. The aim is to see if its Pre-Cert program results in a comparable process for determining safety and effectiveness.
