FDA official plans meeting on 510(k) rules

There’s an interesting article in Friday’s online edition of the StarTribune about how the medical device industry in Minnesota is being very proactive as the FDA considers changes to the 510(k) clearance process.
This is also an issue important to Memphis. (See “New FDA Rules Could Tighten Medical Device Pipeline” in the Feb. 24 edition of The Daily News.)

Representatives of the Minnesota Medical Device Alliance met earlier this month with Dr. Jeffrey Shuren, who directs the FDA’s Center for Devices and Radiological Health division.
Shuren will travel to Mineapolis on May 18 for a town meeting to discuss the proposed changes. Read the article:

Changes to The Daily News Online

If you’ve looked at our Web site today, you’ve hopefully noticed a series of changes to the look and feel of the site. We’ve cleaned up the articles and presentation of news, as well as moved the data-driven utilities on the site into a more visible and accessible location.

This is the first step in a series of changes. Changes you’ll see in the next couple of months will include:

  • Redesigned Email Edition.
  • More help on the services pages (such as the Name & Property Search).
  • Streamlined sign up pages for paid services such as the Watch Service.
  • A simplified Subscribe page (god knows it couldn’t be more complicated…).
  • Better tools to manage your account and services.

If you have thoughts or comments about changes to the site, let me know at info@memphisdailynews.com.

Thanks to Taylor Wood, lead programmer for www.memphisdailynews.com, and Brad Wilkerson, of 68Comeback, for their work on this update to the site.

New ethics code established for doctors

The reputations of doctors have suffered because of financial arrangements with medical device companies and drug companies that have been the subject of government investigations and media scrutiny.
The Council of Medical Specialty Societies addressed the problem this week. It adopted the CMSS Code for Interactions with Companies to provide guidance to doctors.
For more information about the code, visit www.cmss.org
