Guidance on health apps

Added: Tuesday 20 September 2016

The UKs Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency (MHRA) has brought out updated guidance on the use of medical software, including smartphone apps. Many healthcare apps are classed as medical devices and need to comply with the relevant legislation. The MHRA guidance is aimed at all users of medical software, not just healthcare professionals, and includes useful flowcharts to help you classify a device. The legislation covered by the guidance is EU-wide, so the guidance is useful to nurses in all EU countries.
