FDA Device Surveillance to Tap Phone App

By Logan Lafferty

Last year, a prominent cardiologist at the Minneapolis Heart Institute, Robert G. Hauser, and colleagues published a study showing that an automated safety-surveillance software tool applied to large existing databases could have identified problems earlier than actually happened…Dr. Hauser, along with David L. Hayes of the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minn., and others, concluded the software tool, "could have identified this implanted cardiovascular device problem substantially sooner than was achieved through existing post-market surveillance methods."
