Will the consumer medical device and app be more accurate or helpful than the average general practitioner, or the mediocre one, or the top-notch one? Will low prices extend availability to more people and justify trade offs? Who gets to decide: consumers, medical practitioners, health institutions, insurers, employers, or regulators, and what will influence their decision? What might be the role of advertising? This is a relatively new and fast growing area with lots of unanswered questions. So, what may trigger government regulators to seek answers?
