One of my favorite conferences each year is the annual Unique Device Identification (UDI) Conference put on by the Clarion Group on behalf of the Food and Drug Administration (FDA). I am happy to sponsor the event each year, and I try to attend when I can.
As an educational authority on UDI, the 9th annual UDI Conference will once again bring industry stakeholders together with the FDA UDI Team to ensure accurate UDI implementation and continued adoption momentum.
The UDI Conference is THE annual industry gathering for medical device manufacturers, distributors, and hospitals to convene to learn about, and understand, the UDI Regulation (see “InBrief: FDA Publishes Final UDI Rule“) and the Global UDI Database (GUDID) (see “FDA Proposed UDI: The GUDID Database” and “FDA Posts Small Entity Compliance Guide For UDI and GUDID“).
This year’s Conference will focus on UDI implementation as well as data quality and data management throughout the healthcare industry, specifically how it is being used within hospitals for improved patient care.
Attend the Conference to:
- Learn about UDI implementation, applications and the Global UDI Database (GUDID) from the FDA Team and industry stakeholders
- Understand how hospitals can harness the GUDID data
- Take a lead role in being a change engineer in the future landscape of hospitals
- Understand how automatic identification systems can improve patient safety
- Gain the knowledge and establish resources needed to guide your organization
Teams from the following should attend:
- Medical Device Manufacturers
- Health Care Distributors
- Group Purchasing Organizations
- Hospitals and Health Care Providers
- Health Care Industry Professionals
The UDI-enabling Technologies
The UDI Regulation requires new/improved systems and processes to efficiently mark/tag equipment, scan device information at various points in its life cycle, and transmit that data to the GUDID and other software systems.
The UDI Conference is the only conference that allows you to interact directly with the FDA UDI team. They are always present in large numbers. The event also allows you to investigate UDI technology in the exhibit hall, plan your migration path, and network with peers in the healthcare industry in one place, all at one time and in one place.
