The #FDA released their #digitalhealth Innovation Action Planand will conduct a public workshop on “reimagining the paradigm” in January 2018. The FDA acknowledges the challenges digital health innovators face in meeting cybersecurity and interoperability standards for their platforms and devices, which is an ever-increasing concern among users of digital health technologies.

On the other hand, the FDA also acknowledges the enormous potential digital health holds in terms of expanding care access to communities that need it most and seeks to implement an efficient, risk-based approach to regulating digital health technologies to support their growth and innovation.
