FDA and the Veterans Health Administration announced a formal agreement to share information and expertise related to the review and use of medical devices and other FDA-regulated products. The goal of the Memorandum of Understanding is to enhance postmarket safety data collection. By working together, the agencies hope to identify, validate, and analyze product risks more effectively. Within 30 days, there will be a meeting to establish procedures and safeguards. The VHA has been at the cutting edge both of adopting medical technology and of implementing patient safety measures. FDA could learn a lot from its experiences.
