At HealthXL we empower innovators to solve healthcare problems through collaboration. On Wednesday, we hosted a webinar featuring one of our HealthXL Members - ICON plc. ICON plc is a clinical research organization (CRO) to the pharmaceutical, biotechnology & medical device industries. At the webinar, Dr. Dairine Dempsey, Vice President of Strategic Regulatory Affairs at ICON, a Ph.D. pharmacist, with over 15 years' experience as a pharmaceutical regulator, provided us with an overview of the regulatory landscape for medical devices in digital health.We were also hosting Prof. Brendan Buckley, Chief Medical Officer of ICON, who gave us an overview of ICON and Dr. Anand Iyer, Chief Strategy Officer of WellDoc, who are commercializing BlueStar, the first FDA-cleared mobile prescription therapy for Type 2 diabetes.

Five insights from the webinar:

What’s a Rich Text element?

The rich text element allows you to create and format headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, images, and video all in one place instead of having to add and format them individually. Just double-click and easily create content.

Static and dynamic content editing

A rich text element can be used with static or dynamic content. For static content, just drop it into any page and begin editing. For dynamic content, add a rich text field to any collection and then connect a rich text element to that field in the settings panel. Voila!

How to customize formatting for each rich text

Headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, figures, images, and figure captions can all be styled after a class is added to the rich text element using the "When inside of" nested selector system.
