The Value of Unique Device Identification (UDI) for Health Care Systems and Providers
On November 5, 2012, the Engelberg Center for Health Care Reform at Brookings hosted a webinar on “The Value of Unique Device Identification (UDI) for Health Care Systems and Providers.”
Experts have highlighted a variety of enhanced capabilities that could arise from UDI adoption and implementation. For example, UDI implementation offers health care systems and providers the opportunity to streamline internal supply chains, conduct more effective recall management, and improve access to device information. This webinar explored the operational, financial, and clinical value of UDI implementation for health care systems and providers.
