I was in Utrecht, for Games For Health Europe, a few weeks ago, and had this great interview there. It gives me the opportunity to explain in detail about my company PlayBenefit, about Benergy (our first mobile app that’s about to come to life), and how I got until here 😉 Hope you enjoy it!
The FDA (Food and Drugs Administration) expects to have a regulation for mobile health applications by the end of 2013. As they say, it will be restricted to those applications that are considered a medical device. Medical device apps include those that monitor the patient’s vital signs, as would be blood pressure or blood glucose.
