Benefits of Unique Device Identification (UDI) for Medical Device Companies–Thoughts from the FDA
By: Doug Mowen

As the medical device industry patiently awaits the release of the FDA unique device identification (UDI) regulation, I’d invite you to listen to Jay Crowley, Senior Advisor for Patient Safety, Food and Drug Administration and lead for the UDI effort.

Jay describes how standardizing the way medical device companies identify medical devices can improve post-market surveillance and adverse event reporting. By having access to better surveillance data, FDA can make better decisions and identify problems earlier. Listen to Jay describe how implementation of UDI will ultimately improve patient outcomes by making devices safer.
