The unique device identification system offers a number of benefits that will be more fully realized with the adoption and integration of UDIs into the healthcare delivery system. UDI implementation will improve patient safety, modernize device postmarket surveillance, and facilitate medical device innovation. But questions remain. This session will attempt to clear the air.

Topics to be covered include:

  • FDA’s issues regarding UDI, recent changes, and emphasis on data quality
  • Effects of UDI in the EU, which has just included this in its new regulations
  • UDI in Canada, Brazil, China, Taiwan, Korea, Japan, and other locations
