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 to support improved patient safety.
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.
Benefits of Standards
Reducing risk during patient care and helping prevent counterfeit and falsified products.
Capturing medicines at point of care and throughout their supply chain.
Real-time stock management, saving time and cost.
Improved visibility across the supply chain and faster recall processes.
