The FDA has been championing digital health of late with wide-ranging guidance that derives from the 21st Century Cures Act.
This legislation acknowledges the potential that digital health has to make a difference in patient care, potentially leading to more precise therapies. Several developments this week show that the regulator is right to be excited about its potential.

Parsortix works by monitoring a patient’s bloodstream for circulating cancer cells.
