On Wednesday, 16 October 2019 (16.15 - 18.00) Hansjörg Riedwyl, CEO of ISS AG in Biel, will give a guest lecture at the University of St. Gallen, Dufourstrasse 50 (room 09-011). The topic will be "Apps and other Software as Medical Device".
Digital health interventions offer many new opportunities to all involved, but there are also hurdles to consider. This means that digital health interventions can become medical devices according to medical device regulations and these regulations are dramatically changing. It is therefore crucial for managers and developers to understand the borderline between Software as Medical Device (SaMD) and a "normal" software application.
