UDI – Changing the Healthcare Landscape

The healthcare landscape is changing.  Providers are faced with implementation of the FDA’s Unique Device Identification (UDI). The UDI rule was driven by patient advocates due to adverse event reporting, recalls, and more recently Meaningful Use, to name a few. Soon genome therapy will drive the methods and products to treat patients.  Metadata is another consideration in this paradigm shift.  This webinar will explain what healthcare providers need to do to meet the new and future demands of patient care.

Objectives:

  • Define the UDI ruling and the anticipated health benefits
  • Describe the various reports that support the use of the UDI
  • Describe how the use of the UDI will change the future of healthcare
  • Understand how this program will drive change management
