Unique Device Identifier Printing
The United States Food and Drug Administration now requires medical devices distributed in the U.S. to bear a Unique Device Identifier (UDI) in human- and machine-readable form. The purposes of this new UDI system are to provide a standardized method for identifying medical devices that is compatible across all health care information sources and systems – making it possible to rapidly and definitively identify those devices and key attributes that affect their safe and effective use. Once fully adopted, the UDI systems expected outcomes are to enable better monitoring and evaluation of in-use devices, improvements in patient safety, and innovation in the designs for the next generation of medical devices.
