    Top Stories

  1. The FDA has proposed new guidance for Medical Device Data Systems or MDDS. These are systems that, in the FDA words, facilitate, “the electronic transfer or exchange of medical device data from a medical device, without altering the function or parameters of any connected devices.” In other words provide second screens for information. FDA is proposing lessening the regulatory process for MDDS as they introduce little additional risk. Please take a moment and add your comments.
