Medical Devices, Diagnostics and Digital Health
Chair: Dr Bruno Rosen
The Medical Devices, Diagnostics and Digital Health Expert Group consider discovery, development, regulatory processes and vigilance processes across these areas. External therapeutic devices (eg mechanical ventilators), implantable devices, in vitro diagnostics (in particular we are interested in novel molecular diagnostics and companion diagnostics), wearable technologies and digital therapeutics (eg Apps to support behavioural interventions).
There is some overlap with eHealth, but we do not regard this as within our remit per se.
The group also considers the impact that innovation in these areas has on ‘traditional medicines’.
