The FDA's New Digital Health Cyber Unit: What Would It Do?

September 27, 2018 Mayuri Kumar

If all goes according to plan, the Food and Drug Administration will launch in fiscal 2019 a new digital health "center of excellence" that includes a cybersecurity unit. The new unit would not only deal with cyber issues pertaining to new health technologies but also challenges facing older medical devices.

The FDA's $5.8 budget request for fiscal 2019 - which begins Oct. 1 - includes $70 million for the FDA to establish "a new paradigm for digital health technologies," according to the agency's budget justification document released earlier this year.
