When will the FDA guidance on mobile medical apps get updated?

The FDA Guidance on Mobile Medical Apps was released in Feb 2015. Apple has ResearchKit, CareKit, and HealthKit. Developers can build mobile health apps that integrate more closely into the daily lives of individuals using iOS devices.

ResearchKit is a software framework that allows medical researchers gather robust and meaningful patient data.

CareKit is a software framework for apps that let you better understand and manage your medical conditions.

HealthKit APIs work with your user’s shared health and activity data.

We're seeing confusing intersections across disease management, health and wellness, fitness and nutrition, and much more. Innovation is right around the corner, so let's hope that regulatory hurdles don't hinder tremendous opportunities for medical advancement that's powered by these ubiquitous mobile devices.
