Information from IVD tests form a significant proportion of all EHRs. Laboratories commonly associate a LOINC® (Logical Observation Identifiers Names and Codes; owned, developed, and curated by the Regenstrief Institute)1 code with each test being performed by a laboratory.

For each IVD test, LOINC provides a unique numeric code associated with test attributes that identify the type of IVD test such as the component, property, time, system, scale and method.2 At present, LOINC is the IVD coding system that is most widely used by clinical laboratories and EHRs, and is the IVD coding standard recommended by the Office of the National Coordinator for Health Information Technology (ONC) in the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) as an essential part of meaningful use. LOINC is a partially FDA-recognized consensus standard, where the recognition is limited to IVD tests.

The purpose of the guideline is to clarify the criteria for qualification of software and apps as medical devices and to highlight the legislative requirements that medical device manufacturers must fulfil.

The purpose of a device is determined by the manufacturer and not by virtue of how it is applied by the users. For example, an app intended to monitor the heart rate during exercise does not qualify as a medical device, not even if the user chooses to use the app for a medical purpose. In other words, it is the manufacturer who describes what the software/app is intended to be used for.

This guidance is aimed at consumers who use health apps and software that are medical devices. It offers guidance on how to tell if a health app is a medical device and how you should go about them.

There has been a large increase in the development of health apps for consumers and patient groups with all sorts of purposes and functionality. The purpose of an app could, for example, be to serve as an aid to monitor disease, health, exercise, lifestyle etc. The vast majority in this group of health apps are not medical devices and therefore are not CE marked.
