Description: On July 3, 2012, the FDA released a proposed rule on the unique device identification (UDI) system, ending a year-long delay in finalizing the much-anticipated safety mechanism. The 165-page comprehensive rule touches all aspects of the medical device industry. The FDA maintains that the UDI system helps reduce the rate of death caused by faulty devices, which the agency estimates at 17,700 over the past five years. Jeffery Shuren, director of CDRH, called the UDI rule "a major game-changer." The FDA receives numerous device-related adverse event reports, but often can't tell what device the patient is referencing. UDI makes aggregating reports easier, but at what time and cost to industry? Across the board — from supplier, provider, distributor, to consumer — who is ready? Listeners will learn what's hidden in the rule's 165 pages and where to start the journey to implementation. Siobhan O'Bara and John Roberts of GS1 will provide clarification on creating a mandatory system of unique device identifiers.
