On September 25, 2013, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) issued a Final Guidance on Mobile Medical Applications. As applications on mobile devices are increasingly used in health care, the FDA has now provided an  framework for determining if a mobile device running a health app is a medical device. To illustrate the significance of this guidance and what it means for the future use of mobile applications in patient care and education, the AAMC is hosting a webinar with Sharon R. Klein, JD, partner at Pepper Hamilton, LLP to explore how it plays into the larger picture of data privacy, patient care, and government regulations.
