(1) FDA Releases Draft Guidance on Mobile Medical Apps – http://lnkd.in/ZcVN3W

Please feel free to share your thoughts on the implications of this guidance in the following discussion, started by Brian Dolan at MobiHealthNews: “FDA (finally) announces draft regulations for mobile medical apps. Spent the day yesterday going over the draft document published this morning. Also talked to Jeff Shuren and Bakul Patel from the FDA for clarifying remarks. Lots of fodder. I bet the group has a lot of feedback for the FDA on these.”

 

(2) Post your PR (Press Release) or other Company/Startup News Relevant to Wireless Health and mHealth – http://lnkd.in/JKHS8p

For all the entrepreneurs, startups, and small companies – even the big ones! – whose relevant news doesn’t make it into the main industry rags or other news sources, please feel free to post what’s happening at your company/startup in this group discussion. This will be a permanent discussion, similar to the Events list (http://lnkd.in/ppGgcj), which you can post to at any time as well as follow in order to receive email updates whenever a new comment is added. Please read the suggested guidelines in the discussion.

 

(3) Medical Diagnostics via Cell Phone – Cell Phone Counts Cells – http://lnkd.in/gj-jnS

Aydogan Ozcan at UCLA developed a medical device that turns a cell phone into a miniature flow cytometer. There’s an interesting possible convergence with these types of mobile diagnostics and what pharma is doing insofar as co-development models that, as Caroline Popper, MD describes it, are intended to “bring companion diagnostics to market alongside targeted drug therapies”. (See discussion for more info.)

 

(4) Wireless Health Daily – Newsletter-style Aggregation of Trending Items on Twitter (#WirelessHealth, #mHealth) – http://paper.li/WirelessHealth1/1309203497

Just in case you weren’t getting enough news via the Wireless Health group, I’ve configured a daily newsletter that aggregates trending items on Twitter that have been associated with the hash tags #mHealth and #WirelessHealth. You can subscribe to receive this via email.  While unfiltered by me, my impression so far is that these seem to be of generally high quality and relevance due, I gather, to their measured popularity on Twitter.

 

(5) Wireless Health 2011 Academic Industry Conference, Oct 10-13, 2011 in La Jolla, CA – http://www.wirelesshealth2011.org/

The Wireless-Life Sciences Alliance (WLSA) Wireless Health annual conference series convenes the vanguard international research communities in Wireless Health technology and medical research with the rapidly expanding Wireless Health product and service industry, government leadership and policy makers. This second in the series of the Wireless Health conference seeks to build upon the success of Wireless Health 2010, which included more than 400 attendees from academia, industry, government, and press. Wireless Health 2011 will include another outstanding set of peer-reviewed papers, interactive workshops, industrial and academic application demonstrations, topical panel discussions, and world renowned invited speakers.
