SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Agenda: On November 15, 2018, the Committee will discuss and make recommendations on the topic ‘‘Connected and Empowered Patients: EPlatforms Potentially Expanding the Definition of Scientific Evidence.’’ The recommendations will address how FDA can leverage patient-driven platforms, such as social media and registries, to better engage patients and consumers as empowered partners in the work of protecting public health and promoting responsible innovation. Social media and other web platform enablers are facilitating the growth of virtual patient communities. Increasingly, patients and health care consumers are using these platforms to share their health experiences and seek information from other patients and consumers, rather than their health care providers alone. Novel approaches and methodologies are being used to tap into some of these platforms as potentially rich sources of patient-generated health data, which could be used as relevant and reliable real-world evidence (https://www.fda.gov/ucm/groups/ fdagov-public/@fdagov-meddev-gen/ documents/document/ucm513027.pdf). This meeting will help advance FDA’s objective to assure the needs, experiences, and perspectives of VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:40 Sep 21, 2018 Jkt 244001 patients are included as part of FDA’s deliberations involving the regulation of medical devices and their use by patients. For this meeting, FDA is seeking input from the Committee and the public on whether and how FDA can harness the emerging potential of these patient platforms to better engage patients and consumers as empowered partners in the work of protecting public health and promoting responsible innovation. In addition, FDA is seeking recommendations from the Committee on ways to leverage these platforms to disseminate as well as potentially collect and evaluate health information to and from patients and consumers. FDA intends to make background material available to the public no later than 2 business days before the meeting. If FDA is unable to post the background material on its website prior to the meeting, the background material will be made publicly available at the location of the advisory committee meeting, and the background material will be posted on FDA’s website after the meeting.
