Games, Medical Devices and the FDA: Now, Near & Next

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

This year we have a return of our session on regulation information that may increasingly be a factor in the development and deployment of your game for health.

Do you know which video games are subject to regulation by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA)? Answer: All of them! (At least potentially.)

At this session, attandees will learn why some games for health might be regulated as medical devices by FDA, and what that means for game developers. Attendees will also be updated on FDA’s latest efforts to regulate mobile medical apps and how those efforts might affect games for health. In sum, this session will help demystify the FDA process and attempt to remove the “”scare factor”” of government regulation of video games.
