  • In Support of S. 2007, the Protect Act

    Patients and their caregivers are using health information software on their smartphones and tablets to manage their health and wellness, particularly among those with rare or less common conditions, those who are chronically ill, and those with service-connected conditions.

    Use of these technologies has allowed patients and their caregivers to easily integrate disease management activities into their daily lives.

    Recent actions to regulate mobile health apps and other health IT software have created confusion in the market about what technologies may be regulated next. We are concerned that this might inhibit development of these products or dramatically increase their price to consumers.

    S.2007, the PROTECT Act, would clarify the regulation of medical device and health information technology, an important first step in updating how new health information systems and software are regulated to help ensure that products are safe and that patients and caregivers have access to these innovative technologies.

    If you would like to add your organization to our PROTECT Act endorsement letter, please contact mike@hydrocephaluskids.org by Wednesday, April 9.
