    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.

    Regulation on Ranchers, Beer Brewers

    in Politics Conservative

    The proposed rule, which is part of the Food Safety Modernization Act, would tighten regulations on pet food and animal feed "by requiring animal food facilities to take preventive steps to ensure that food for animals is safe," according to the FDA.


    The controversy surrounds the rule's effect on the longtime practice of beer brewers giving their spent grain, the malted barley left over after the beer brewing process, to neighboring ranchers and dairy farmers. The practice serves two purposes: to help the brewers get rid of millions of tons of leftover product, and to provide a free, nutritious food source for animals at local farms.


    Under the new regulation, the practice would be outlawed, unless breweries go through expensive and time-consuming measures to ensure the grain is up to regulation.


    "The proposal is part of the Food Safety Modernization Act's larger effort to modernize the food safety system for the 21st century and focus public and private efforts on preventing food safety problems, rather than relying primarily on responding to problems after the fact," wrote the FDA in a press release.

    SPECIAL BROADCAST: How To Create A Competitive Advantage In Preparing For TRID!

    in Finance

    This is a REBROADCAST of just the HOT TOPIC segment from yesterday's broadcast!  


    No question that TRID is a game changer but how you approach this change could make a difference if TRID works to your advantage or to your detriment.  There's a select group of lenders out there who are turning TRID into an opportunity to differentiate themselves from their competition by reengineering their business processes thereby creating efficiencies resulting in shorter lending timelines.  In a world where mortgage lenders basically sell the same products at close to the same rates, giving consumers and realtors faster service in a post-TRID world could be a huge differentiator.  


    Tune into today's broadcast to hear how to make your business processes more efficent thereby shortening timelines to turn the new TRID regulation into an opportunity instead of an obstacle.  Sharing his expertise and insights on this important topic, we have as our special guest on the broadcast, Tyler Sherman, President and co-founder of Motivity Solutions.  Motivity Solutions is the leading mortgage business intelligence provider in the industry that can play a significant role in identifying  Inefficiencies within lending processes.  On today's broadcast we will be discussing things like (1) how to measure cycle times to (2) establish key performance indicators so you can (3) track the number of business days between the various stages of your lending process.
