Coming Soon: Good News for Patients and Medical Innovation

October 13, 2011

WASHINGTON, DC -As part of an ongoing effort to improve the medical device review process, members of Congress recently invited innovators in the field to engage in a roundtable discussion about how the FDA's review process impacts their ability to make these devices accessible to American patients. The Subcommittees on Health and Oversight and Investigations have held several hearings to lay the foundation to strengthen the review and approval process. Legislative solutions to protect patients, jobs, and innovation will be introduced soon.
