Title: Medical Devices; Amendments to Medical Device Classification Regulations to Conform to Medical Software Provisions in the 21st Century Cures Act 

The 21st Century Cures Act amended the definition of device under the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act to exclude certain medical software functions from the definition of device and therefore exclude such functions, where appropriate, from FDA regulation as a device. FDA will revise its regulations to be consistent with this statutory change.
