    FDA Aims to Accelerate Medical Device Reviews

    Associated Press

    WASHINGTON (AP) — Federal health officials have proposed a plan that would speed up the approval of innovative medical devices that hold the potential to dramatically improve patients’ lives.

    The so-called Innovation Pathway from the Food and Drug Administration would aim to review first-of-a-kind devices in five months, which is half the time currently spent reviewing most new devices. The initiative comes amid complaints from medical device manufacturers that FDA review times lag behind other regulators abroad.
