Thanks Isabel for the intro.
I specialize in regulatory Affairs of Medical Devices (larger umbrella under which digital health sits).
Currently, toying with idea of participatory regulatory processes for low to medium risk Digital Health App.
This idea stemmed from the work done in Taiwan to regulate Uber.
I am fully aware of the fact, that Uber is very different from Digital Health, the latter having direct consequences on people's lives. But I wonder (still researching the topic) whether one can build a model similar to the Uber one while accounting for the safety and effectiveness of these digital health solutions.
The safest would be of course, the start with a very low risk one.
Please note I have been quite involved with shaping the local discussion in TW, through traditional GVT channels like the TFDA and NHIA. But my personal interest (even though it might leave me jobless) is to think of ways to crowd regulate these solutions.
I lived in TW for the past 2 years. Hence, my interest in using platforms like vTaiwan. However, I am taking off to Canada (Vancouver, BC) on Dec 31 where I plan to connect with Canadian Civic Tech groups and Digital Health associations to see who else is interested in joining.
Using public engagement to improve the quality, effectiveness and legitimacy of the lawmaking process. This is a draft version 1.0 of the report (dated October 12, 2017 ) and will be updated in November.
