Prof. Hall Leads Coalition to Enact Major Diagnostic Test Legislation

Professor Ralph Hall has led a coalition to draft legislation which would provide a predictable and timely path to market for innovative diagnostic tests. The Diagnostic Accuracy and Innovation Act (DAIA) addresses longstanding issues with the regulation of diagnostic tests and will bring much-needed certainty to patients, providers, and industry. This legislation would establish a flexible, risk-based approach that applies the same regulatory principles to the same activity regardless of where the test is developed. On April 3, Representatives Larry Bucshon, M.D. (R-IN) and Diana DeGette (D-CO) released a discussion draft of the DAIA.
