    Mobile Apps for the Caregiver - from AARP??

    in Technology

    When you think of AARP, do mobile apps come to mind? AARP is known to provide discounts to is members, provide branded insurance products, and lobby on behalf of Social Security and Medicare. Recently, this same non-profit has released two mobile apps - targeting the Caregiver community.


    A caregiver is a term for anyone who helps or provides care to another individual, often a parent or spouse, in handling their daily activities. The caregiver can be paid, such as a nurse, but is more often an unpaid relative. And the person receiving care is often suffering an impairment, and/or dealing with health issues.


    These two apps released by AARP (for iOS and Android) provide features designed to help in providing care. For instance, the apps help manage medications, keep a schedule of doctor's appointments and other medical needs, and create and maintain notes you want to share with the doctor. But will this work? Does this actually help someone take care of a loved one? Are these features unique? Are they really the features that a Caregiver needs?


    On May 28th, at a special 11am EST/8am Pacific time, we will be joined by Trisha San Diego of AARP, who is the driving force behind the creation and release of these Apps, and we'll ask her these questions.


    We'll talk about these apps and ask if there is a sign of things to come from AARP?  


    Tune in Live at 11am EST, Thursday, May 28th!

    FDA Regulation of Mobile Apps

    in Health

    Nathan Cortez, JD co-wrote an article on FDA regulation of mobile apps published in the July 24, 2014 issue of NEJM. Luckily, we snagged an opportunity to interview him - you can listen here.


    We covered a wide variety of topics including:



    Why regulate mHealth anyway?
    The new FDA guidance — what needs to be regulated and what does not?
    How does the FDA handle at continual updates of mobile health products – so different from the pharmaceuticals that they regulate?  How do they decide whether an update constitutes a major change, requiring re-review and one that is minor and does not?
    What is “substantially equivalence” and how is it being used in mHealth
    How does the FDA handle mHealth products that provide consumer decision support (CDS)?  What is the difference between low risk and high risk CDS?
    Does the FDA have the right people/processes in place to provide oversight of mHealth?


    Professor Cortez teaches and writes in the areas of health law, administrative law, and FDA law.  His research focuses on emerging markets in health care and biotechnology. Prof. Cortez has become one of the world’s leading legal scholars on medical tourism, patient mobility, and cross-border health insurance, and has published several articles and book chapters on the legal and ethical implications of these phenomena. His research also addresses mobile health technologies, how to regulate innovations that disrupt static regulatory regimes, the First Amendment restraints on FDA regulation (including FDA's graphic tobacco warnings), immigration federalism, and alternative modes of regulation.
