Washington, USA – The New Healthcare bill they want to sign into law in the US contains some interesting information. According to the bill there will be required to:
“The Secretary shall establish a national medical device registry (in this subsection referred to as the ‘registry’) to facilitate analysis of postmarket safety and outcomes data on each device that—‘‘(A) is or has been used in or on a patient; and ‘‘(B) is a class III device; or ‘‘(ii) a class II device that is implantable.”
This could be that the US is the first nation in the world to require all citizens to where a “device that is implantable”
Interesting things are happening on that side of the world, it turns out Obama is bringing some change. Not exactly change you want to believe in though.
(Please note. We think it could just mean things like: pacemakers, spinal cord stimulators or such so take that in consideration when reading this.) You decide.
