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.
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.

Masaccio is the nom de blog for Ed Walker, former Securities Commisioner for the State of Tennessee. He and Jay Ackroyd discuss the nature of markets and their role in a mixed economy. "Market solutions" have become an objective for policy makers, both conservative and centrists,which is entirely wrong. Markets are policy tools,not policy goals.Moreover,there are no "free markets." Markets can only arise within a framework of complex regulation. There is no more regulated marketplace than securities markets.
One of a series of exporations of income inequality, economics and public policy, the 1%, plutocracy, income distribution, wealth distribution

DON'T BE ENTANGLED IN THE CARES OF THIS WORLD!
QUANTUM ENTANGLEMENT THEORY
RULES; REGULATIONS AND RITUALS
The Ultimate tool of Babylon, Baal, Skalas, Samael is the power of fear of hell, to drive the people into a false conversion that leads to “submission to Godly authority based on religious tradition”.
This is the greatest social and political brainwashing tool of all time! "They" destroyed the teachings of the True Messiah and replaced it with RULES, REGULATIONS AND RITUALS of the Babylonian Mystery school,
called Orthodox __________you fill in the blank!
Everything you love of the material existence drags you down into the darkness, because you become entangled with it by your Intentions or Love. If you love self or things more than others, your entanglement is with yourself, and is a magnetic vortex of increasing hardness and density.

Well, if it isn't time for my weekly 3 hour break from my TBI to my TBI, and how I enjoy talking to you folks! Its my 'break' from the 'scene', if you will. My scene? Past few months it been situated in my bed room or inside the Downtown Milton Studio. Emotional wreck? Far from it, even in the midst of this winter. Emotionally mad about staying inside? Not really, its cold. Emotionally happy? On Sundays and in prep for the show usually. How about Emotionally stuck in a family situation, confused. You know, like deciding what T.V. show to watch, which can be confusing to the mind, before just deciding not to watch anything. I KNOW HOW YOUR LIFE GOES - SO DOES MINE. Yet, pretty well trained by the Dr. Lisa Thompson Foundation Center to regulate my personal stimuli - the process doesn't ALWAYS work in controlling your emotions. But helps. Helps all - Survivor, Family, Caregiver, everyone - even the postal workers (let's hope). Julie Sharp-Kintz will again be on the show, as we discuss Emotional Regulation with you. Call us. Julie, in her final semester in Phsycology at IPFW University, has spent the weekend researching our subject. Except for phone time with me - because we need her on Brain Injury Radio and I 'discussed' (rambled) the subject. What an inspiration. And she says she can be Emotionally bored? Uh, Co-Host's, Kelly, all - that's my primary job on TMDS. Speaking of CoHost's, Jasmine will (hopefully) reflect on her first 'On The Road" experience across America (Greyhound has been an Emotional wreck for her). Call us, let's get Emotional with another.(424)243-9540 or new Toll Free #'s (855) 473-3711. Outside North America (the Islands & Panama Canal on up, I reckon) our Free Number is (202) 559-7907. No Lefty, no cat #.
Join Brett & Jon Rappaport on The Final Say every day, Monday through Friday from 3 to 4 PM EST, as we discuss and analyze current news, politics, policy, issues, and world events.
