Health IT Bill • A new Health IT bill that aims to reduce regulatory burden in the industry is drawing backlash from mHealth advocates who believe it may risk lives and damage the industry • The Preventing Regulatory Overreach to Enhance Care Technology (PROTECT) Act of 2014 aims to clarify the extent to which the US Food and Drug Administration Authority (FDA) can regulate Health IT • The proposed bill aims to limit the FDA’s focus on technologies that pose the greatest health risk rather than giving the agency complete authority over low-risk Health IT and therefore hindering innovation

Health IT Bill • A Washington DC lawyer Bradley Merrill Thompson advocating mHealth Regulatory Coalition, terms the proposed bill a “meat cleaver” that would do a lot of damage if passed, particularly to clinical decision support applications • Thompson thinks the proposed legislation is similar to the SOFTWARE Act of 2013, proposed by Marsha Blackburn, a Republican from Tennessee

Health IT Bill • In Thompsons opinion, both look to reduce the FDA’s regulatory powers by deregulating what legislators feel is less risk Health IT such as EHRs, practice management and wellness apps • Both pieces of legislation aim to free mHealth technology that needs to be regulated, according to Thompson
