FDA, CMS Launch Pilot Program for Voluntary Parallel Review of Innovative Devices
Date:10/7/2011

SILVER SPRING, Md., Oct. 7, 2011 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The U.S. Food and Drug Administration and the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) today launched a "parallel review" pilot program for concurrent review of medical devices for FDA approval and Medicare coverage.

The FDA and CMS, which will begin accepting submissions today, issued procedures for voluntary participation and guiding principles that the agencies will follow during product review. The FDA and CMS anticipate that parallel review will facilitate the development of innovative new products and increase the efficiency of the review processes for both agencies.

"The pilot program will help the FDA and CMS streamline the parallel review process so that it works efficiently for expedient patient access to safe and effective medical devices," said Jeffrey Shuren, M.D., director of the FDA's Center for Devices and Radiological Health.

Often, device sponsors focus solely on obtaining FDA approval, only to find that Medicare coverage is not automatically forthcoming. Both agencies rely on clinical data in reaching their decisions, and while the two agencies have distinctly different regulatory responsibilities, parallel review can reduce time between FDA approval and Medicare national coverage determinations.

"The parallel review program has the potential to increase patient access to innovative devices that improve clinical outcomes. Our goal is to reduce regulatory burden and improve patient outcomes," said Patrick Conway, M.D., CMS chief medical officer.

The pilot program, announced in a Federal Register notice posted for advanced viewing today, is voluntary and will not change the existing separate and distinct review standards for FDA device approval and CMS coverage determination. It is only available for qualifying
