SANTA BARBARA, CALIFORNIA—(February 7, 2018) – USDM Life Sciences, the leading risk management, technological innovation and business process optimization firm for the life sciences and healthcare industries, announces Jay Crowley will speak at MD&M West 2018 in Anaheim, CA, February 6-8.   

What: Panel - Next Steps for Implementing Global UDI
Who: Jay Crowley, VP of UDI Services and Solutions at USDM Life Sciences
Where: MD&M West 2018, Anaheim Convention Center
When: Wednesday, February 7, 2:30-4:00 pm  

“I am looking forward to facilitating some critical discussions surrounding the global UDI requirements and sharing my experiences with UDI in the United States,” said Crowley. “This event comes at a critical time for the medical device industry as the first MDR/IVDR deadlines approach and more countries around the world move towards implementing UDI regulations.”    

The Unique Device Identification (UDI) system offers a number of benefits that will be more fully realized with the adoption and integration of UDIs into the healthcare delivery system. UDI implementation will improve patient safety, modernize device postmarket surveillance, and facilitate medical device innovation. But questions remain. This session will attempt to clear the air.

Topics to be covered include:

  • FDA’s issues regarding UDI, recent changes, and emphasis on data quality
  • Effects of UDI in the EU, which has just included this in its new regulations
  • UDI in Canada, Brazil, China, Taiwan, Korea, Japan, and other locations
