Want to take advantage of the consumer diagnostics boom but you’re perplexed by changing regulatory, enforcement and policy issues?

One thing the pandemic proved: the public is increasingly reliant on widely deployable wellness, diagnosis and clinical decision support products and services, including those that don’t require a physician’s order.

With no signs of waning demand, companies are scrambling to get offerings to market. But if you can’t get a handle on the FDA’s enforcement approach, how can you succeed?

Example: Will some of the waivers granted by federal and state regulators during the pandemic be used as models for consumer diagnostics and wellness testing products more generally? Is this even wise?
