Unique Device Identification: From Regulation to Value

Recently, Cook Medical hosted a discussion on Unique Device Identification (UDI) at the IDN Summit’s annual fall meeting. Suppliers and providers gathered to discuss the challenges their organizations are facing as the UDI regulation unfolds over the next few years, but also the value that adopting UDI and data standards could add to healthcare.

After the session, we talked to Karen Conway, the executive director for Industry Relations at Global Healthcare Exchange, who moderated the discussion.

What were your takeaways from our UDI discussion?

What is one thing that attendees should start acting on immediately in their own organizations?

As of September 24th, suppliers and providers are required to use UDI for Class III devices. As we begin this process together, we want to hear about the challenges and successes that your organizations are experiencing. Find us on Twitter and LinkedIn. Follow Karen on Twitter @ConwayComments.
