CDRH’s New Post-Market Paradigm: Why The Public Should Be Worried

Strengthening the flow of real-world evidence on medical devices is at the heart of US FDA's evolving paradigm of device oversight. An underlying promise of the new approach is that a better post-market safety net will allow the agency's device center to take more risk in the pre-market phase, accelerating product development. But while safety surveillance is an important goal, the device center's recent actions and its April-issued Medical Device Safety Action Plan signal that it wants dramatic changes in its authority to decide how best to respond to perceived post-market safety signals, carrying potentially significant negative consequences for the public health, argues attorney Bradley Merrill Thompson in this guest column.
