Webinar: The Value of UDI Implementation for Healthcare Systems and Providers
MedSun: Newsletter #78, November 2012

FDA Medical Devices - Workshops and Conferences

In July 2012, The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) released a proposed rule that most medical devices distributed in the United States carry a unique device identifier, or UDI. A UDI system has the potential to improve the quality of information in medical device adverse event reports, which will help identify product problems more quickly, better target recalls and improve patient safety. Healthcare professionals and staff from hospitals and other healthcare facilities are invited to find out more about the potential impact of UDI by participating in this free webinar, hosted by the Engelberg Center for Health Care Reform at the Brookings Institution, in cooperation with FDA’s Center for Devices and Radiological Health (CDRH).
