MedTech & Regulations: Can Apps be considered Medical Devices?
Presented by SGInnovate and Asia Regulatory Professional Association
Despite multiple studies showcasing how most ‘medical’ apps have little to no clinical research backing, there has been an influx of lifestyle and wellness apps flooding the market which offers illusionary benefits, faulty patient monitoring systems, and even wrong diagnosis. These apps often have exaggerated and unsubstantiated claims of condition monitoring, health benefits and treatments, making it difficult to differentiate and draw the line between apps and medical devices that actually helps patients.
Join us as our panel discuss the regulations and guidelines behind determining whether the app or software is an actual MedTech device, and the requirements of connected devices.
