Description

Advances in medical technology are transforming established medical practice and bringing completely new models of treatment, prevention, and diagnosis to patients right now. New devices include not only improvements over existing technology - devices that make less-invasive treatments possible and provide new options to patients whose condition would have been considered untreatable in the past - but also technologies that will be keystones in emerging fields, such as precision medicine. Genetic testing offers the promise of targeting the right treatment to the right patients, reducing ineffective treatment decisions, and speeding the delivery of therapies that work. Health information technology can empower people with chronic diseases to manage their own health and well-being by putting medical "apps" right into the hands of patients. FDA has responded to the promises - and challenges - posed by these devices with flexible, risk-based approaches to its oversight role and with strong performance in bringing new, safe and effective products to market.show more
