UDI Has Gone Global - A Discussion of Requirements, Challenges & Opportunities
Regulators in many countries agreed on a set of principles for building a harmonized Global UDI system throughout the medical device supply chain. Today, variances across jurisdictions in UDI medical device regulations have impacted the healthcare supply chain and can make implementation more challenging for manufacturers. Learn how to overcome these challenges and to take advantage of the opportunities a Global UDI system brings to manufacturers and hospitals.

This webinar will discuss:
• The importance of the UDI device triggers, data quality requirements and validation rules.
• Master data management and how to support data registration to numerous regulatory databases.
• Maintaining globally compliant labels and the impact of regulator and manufacturer actions on the adoption of UDI by across the device ecosystem.
• Ideas to reduce variability and increase the value of the device label as a communications tool.
