re: Bluetooth low energy enabled iPhone applications for mobile health

This technology is certainly going to alter the landscape of healthcare treatment in the United States. The most serious concerns regarding mobile medical apps and devices are going to be discussed regarding the FDA regulations of this market. Although the FDA has already released its guidelines, the user fee acts for mobile medical devices may seriously favor big companies over small scale independent business. Many of whom are doctors that develop the apps. Although any sort of regulation will not be mandated until 2014 under the guidelines, major legislative issues around this topic will need to be dealt with prior to any sort of major widespread tech boom. For a look on the regulations of the reauthorization of MDUFA check out the link below:

BLE can pave way to many great technologically advanced products like wireless patient monitoring. Looking forward to hear about the reliability of this technology.

Advances in this area move us closer to the day when we can easily provide more complete and accurate patient monitoring to health professionals thereby enabling them to provide better, more targeted, and complete care. Of course, the privacy issues need to be addressed (and will probably come after the technology as usual), but ultimately these kinds of advances will benefit us all greatly.
