Unique Device Identification improves supply chain visibility and patient care

The requirement for Unique Device Identification (UDI) of Medical Devices and In Vitro Diagnostic Devices has been increasingly implemented in countries around the world. 

A UDI system is intended to provide single, globally harmonized positive identification of medical devices through distribution and use, requiring the label of devices to bear a globally unique device identifier, to be conveyed by using Automatic Identification and Data Capture and, if applicable, its Human Readable Interpretation based upon standard, with the UDI-DI (Device Identifier) of that unique identifier being also linked to a jurisdiction-specific public UDI database.
