  8. 8. Pier Angelo Sottile Milano 08/05/2014 Pag. 8 Many Examples of Apps in the Medical and Health & Fitness fields Used for: Improving or facilitating communications between clinicians and patients Used for monitoring clinical parameters Informative on pathologies, drugs, interactions, available services, etc. AND MUCH MORE! What do they do and where are they to get? See for yourself: Several shall be presented in this international conference iMedicalApps.com for manyexamples and reviews Itunes Store Google Store Microsoft Store … all running on ever more powerful smartphones and tablets!
  9. 9. Pier Angelo Sottile Milano 08/05/2014 Pag. 9 Issues around Apps in Healthcare BIG numbers (as seen in May 2014 on appbrain.com and 148apps.biz)! Apps on Google Store: 1.203.791, of which 33.905 regarding Health & Fitness and 16.316 regarding Medical topics Apps on Itunes: 1.555.944, of which 31.737 regarding Health & Fitness and 24,836 regarding Medical topics … But what about App: documentation (technical, about the provider, promoter, testing, and correct use)? quality and safety (risks)? data protection? integration of App data with other patient/person data? scientific/expert review of the app? accreditation of the apps? regulatory aspects? usage in health organisations? …
  10. 10. Pier Angelo Sottile Milano 08/05/2014 Pag. 10 A note Regarding Data Protection It’s today’s news (6th of May 2014) that national body responsible for the protection of data will investigate privacy with respect to Medical Apps!
  11. 11. Pier Angelo Sottile Milano 08/05/2014 Pag. 11 The need regarding Apps in Healthcare There is a need for the proper identification of the apps in the eHealth arena in order to allow: proper use and deployment in healthcare delivery organisations accreditation of apps application of regulatory aspects awareness and confidence in the app user … Use of standards and new ad-hoc norms to obtain: conformity assessment procedures assess manufacturer’s obligations support the implementation of regulatory frameworks, accreditation, qualification, etc. …
  12. 12. Pier Angelo Sottile Milano 08/05/2014 Pag. 12 The need regarding Apps in Healthcare There is a need for the proper identification of the apps in the eHealth arena in order to allow: proper use and deployment in healthcare delivery organisations accreditation of apps application of regulatory aspects awareness and confidence in the app user … Use of standards and new ad-hoc norms to obtain: conformity assessment procedures assess manufacturer’s obligations support the implementation of regulatory frameworks, accreditation, qualification, etc. … This is where SDOs should start!
  13. 13. Pier Angelo Sottile Milano 08/05/2014 Pag. 13 What is being done In the UNINFO eHealth Committee a working group has been activated, the scope of which is to prepare a document (technical specification or report) regarding apps and relevant characteristics that need to be provided by the manufacture/provider. A sort of standard ID Document for apps in healthcare, containing, for example: Promoters of the apps Services provided Sector of application Intended use Intended user population Conformance (to standards/regulations/...) statements … The topic has also been brought up at European (CEN TC 251) and international (ISO TC 215) eHealth Committees, to which the Italian result may be escalated.
  14. 14. Pier Angelo Sottile Milano 08/05/2014 Pag. 14 Many activities already being carried out Reference and evaluate
  15. 15. Pier Angelo Sottile Milano 08/05/2014 Pag. 15 Many activities already being carried out Reference and evaluate
  16. 16. Pier Angelo Sottile Milano 08/05/2014 Pag. 16 European Medical Device Directive and MEDDEV Where the intended use of the app falls under the Medical Device Directive’s prescription, the following directives need to be taken into consideration: 1. 90/385/EEC Active Medical Devices 2. 93/42/EEC Medical Devices Directives (General devices) 3. 98/79/EC In-vitro Diagnostic Medical Devices Amended by 2007/47/EC, to be seen with among others MEDDEV 2.1.6 Qualification and Classification of Stand Alone SW, released in 2012 Qualification and classification of a product as Medical Device with the consequent CE marking! Expecting new regulation on topic? in 2015? Open question…
  17. 17. Pier Angelo Sottile Milano 08/05/2014 Pag. 17 Risk management is important, of course, but… All of the previous examples deal with sole Medical Devices Directive aspects –fundamental and highly important due to risk management- but this however does not cover all apps dealing with Health and all other Healthcare-related aspects. In order to recognise when to apply the Medical Device directives and anyhow implement a sound regulatory framework for apps dealing with health, it is necessary to inform and educate manufactures, providers, and users require that the relevant characteristics of the apps be documented as to easily identify where the app falls in terms of categorisation This facilitates the application of regulatory frameworks in all cases
  18. 18. Pier Angelo Sottile Milano 08/05/2014 Pag. 18 Many activities already being carried out to reference and evaluate But also other scientific literature
  19. 19. Pier Angelo Sottile Milano 08/05/2014 Pag. 19 EN ISO 13485 Quality Systems EN ISO 14971 Risk management EN ISO 12967 Health Informatics – Service Architecture ISO/IEC 25012 Systems and software engineering -- Systems and software Quality (and others in the 25000 series like: ISO/IEC 25010, ISO/IEC 25051:2014) … Also existing standards as reference!
  20. 20. Pier Angelo Sottile Milano 08/05/2014 Pag. 20 ‘Standard’ means a technical specification, adopted by a recognised standardisation body, for repeated or continuous application, with which compliance is not compulsory, and which is one of the following: ‘international standard’ means a standard adopted by an international standardisation body; ‘European standard’ means a standard adopted by a European standardisation organisation ; ‘harmonised standard’ means a European standard adopted on the basis of a request made by the Commission for the application of Union harmonisation legislation; ‘national standard’ means a standard adopted by a national standardisation body; Regulation (EU) No 1025/2012, OJEU L 316 14 November 2012 What is a standard?
  21. 21. Pier Angelo Sottile Milano 08/05/2014 Pag. 21 What is a standard? Transparency Consensus Voluntary Democracy
  22. 22. Pier Angelo Sottile Milano 08/05/2014 Pag. 22 CONSENSUS: approval through consensus of working group members DEMOCRACY: all interested parties may participate to the task TRASPARENCY: The SDO signals the steps of the approval process, sharing the project itself with the interested parties VOLONTARY: standards are the reference that all parties take on spontaneously. What is a standard?
