UDI: Where Do We Go From Here?


Unique Device Identification or UDI is a forever project. What's the best way for orthopaedic device companies to receive return on their investment? What best practices can be learned for a continually-smooth process? How can the data be leveraged to enhance your company’s value proposition? The true value of UDI is not in the identification number, but in the data that can be generated as a result of UDI. This session will provide attendees with an outline of the opportunities that manufacturers can leverage beyond implementation.

Session Takeaways:

  • How to receive return on investment from UDI
  • How to eliminate waste from business practices
  • How to improve internal UDI processes

Who Should Attend:

  • Product Management
  • Supply Chain Management
  • Regulatory Affairs
