Send MedCityNews Your Questions for Bakul Patel

October 17, 2017 |

Next week, MedCityNews will host its annual ENGAGE conference in San Diego, and Bakul Patel, director of digital health for the FDA’s recently launched initiative to revamp the certification process, will be a featured speaker. As he will be presenting remotely from his office in Washington DC., MedCityNews is calling for questions in advance for the virtual town hall. What would you ask Bakul Patel?

FDA’s associate center director for digital health — Bakul Patel — is the face of the agency’s efforts to regulate while also fostering innovation in the nascent field.

Less than a month ago, the agency announced the nine companies that have been picked from more than a 100 applications to take part in FDA’s first digital health Pre-cert program that will help to define the agency’s approach to digital health regulation while also helping largely high-tech companies introduce new kinds of products with the agency’s stamp of approval.

Why were those nine companies selected?

That will be one among several questions that will be answered at MedCity ENGAGE in San Diego, Oct. 24, where Bakul will feature remotely from his offices in the nation’s capital.
