How will the UDI rule affect your healthcare supply chain?

The Impact of the FDA’s Unique Device Identification Rule on the Healthcare Supply Chain and Patient Care

The recent release of the FDA’s proposed Unique Device Identification (UDI) rule moves the healthcare industry closer to adopting standards for product identification. This rule is designed to allow manufacturers, distributors and healthcare facilities to more effectively manage medical device recalls. To help explain the impact of UDI on the healthcare supply chain and patient care, Infor Healthcare invited Dr. Natalia Wilson, Co-Director of the Health Sector Supply Chain Research Consortium at Arizona State University to share her perspectives on the value of UDI across healthcare.
