Many in the health care industry initially reacted negatively to the FDA’s Unique Device Identifier (UDI) regulation, seeing it as a nuisance. These views are shifting as device manufacturers and hospitals are realizing the enormous benefits that are emerging from this mandate, specifically in the areas of patient care/safety and clinical outcomes, as well as operational efficiency, cost savings and revenue capture. This presentation will provide detailed information about what exactly the FDA is mandating and how the regulation works. It will highlight the ways that many prominent suppliers and providers are implementing this regulation using cutting-edge Ultra High Frequency (UHF) passive Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) technology, a solution that is hands-free and cabinet-free.
