MedApps is one of the devices/software services that has been cleared by the FDA. Sometimes what does and does not need FDA approval gets a bit cloudy today. MedApps combines several devices into one platform so you line up an army of devices and have them all respond and post data to one place.

There’s a lot going on at CES this week with many devices and a lot of choices.

Big problem with non participants today that keeps rearing it’s ugly head and now that the new head of the science committee is 90 years old, he’s certainly a candidate to use this product, but don’t expect him to get it anytime soon I am guessing after what I saw yesterday on the floor of the House with still using a paper 3 ring binder to read the Constitution.

Meanwhile, AT&T will connect the MedApps suite to its 3G network and sell MedApps' remote-care monitoring hub and enterprise back-end products with AT&T's ForHealth applications.
"It will help AT&T offer m-health solutions that are user-agnostic and universally accessible, despite carrier, device type or operating system," Porter said.
When designing health-care IT applications that reach a diversity of demographics it is essential to get patients to comply with medical procedures, according to Kent Dicks, CEO of MedApps.
