AUSTIN, Texas – Xcertia, a joint mHealth app collaborative effort pioneered by the American Medical Association, American Heart Association, DHX Group and Healthcare Information and Management Systems Society, recently released a preliminary version of its anticipated guidelines for safe and effective mHealth apps for review and comment. “Cooperative input on the guidelines from consumers, developers, payers, clinicians, academia and other motivated stakeholders will provide Xcertia with guidance on where it needs to focus its efforts in 2018 to positively impact the trajectory of the mobile health app industry,” said Dr. Michael Hodgkins, chairman of the Xcertia board of directors, in a statement. The early version of the guidelines assesses the quality, safety and effectiveness of mobile health apps in four key areas: operability, privacy, security and content. The guidelines are available at xcertia.org, and comments will be accepted through the end of January.
