LUC work groups are comprised of a diverse group of health care supply chain professionals, who work together to develop progressive practices, proposed solutions, and resources to focus on topics that can accelerate UDI adoption. This document is a comprehensive listing of LUC resources and deliverables developed by the LUC work groups and includes best recommended practices, case studies, and power point content templates, with the goal of promoting and accelerating UDI adoption.

  • The Critical Link Between Cost, Quality, and Outcomes (CQO) and Unique Device Identification (UDI) White Paper

    July 04, 2018 | Content Areas: Technology | Tags: CQO, Data Standards, Regulatory, UDI | Formats: White Paper

    In an effort to capture broader insights on UDI adoption from across the health care field, AHRMM, with participation by the FDA, held LUC Data Quality Workshops during four conferences in 2017. During these workshops, conference attendees had the opportunity to voice their opinions on the state of UDI data quality, hurdles to UDI adoption and what recommended practices are necessary for providers and suppliers to effectively capture the UDI and use it in meaningful ways.  

    A clear message has emerged from health care stakeholders – the only way to drive greater UDI adoption across the health care field is for the individuals and groups engaged in UDI efforts to collaborate, share their experiences, and learn from each other. In this paper, we leverage these collective insights to present challenges faced by providers and manufacturers today with regards to UDI adoption, and highlight potential solutions that have emerged from the work of the LUC and other health care participants.

The report also contains recommendations on what hospitals need to do to effectively adopt UDI and incorporate it into ongoing clinical and supply chain operations.

  • UDI Guidance Document for Medical Devices Containing HCT/P

    May 03, 2018 | Content Areas: Technology | Tags: UDI | Formats: Report/Study

    Human cells, tissues, or cellular or tissue-based products (HCT/Ps) are a precious resource often provided by deceased donors and/or acutely grieving family members. Living donors also provide HCT/Ps that can improve and save lives of recipients in need. Tissue banks, eye banks and cellular therapy laboratories handle these products of human origin with care and respect, understanding the special gift of donation. It is important this care and respect is followed from the time of donation and recovery to the moment of implant, transplant, infusion, or transfer to a human recipient. This guidance document, developed by a work group of the AHRMM Learning UDI Community (LUC) provides information on HCT/Ps, HCT/Ps regulation as a medical device, traceability of HCT/Ps, and the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) Unique Device Identification (UDI) Rule and its effects on HCT/Ps regulated as a medical device.

  • Collaboration and Data are Key Drivers for New Ways to Recover Costs and Reduce Spend for Hospitals

    March 16, 2018 | Content Areas: Leadership | Tags: Cost Management, CQO | Formats: Article

    Real-time supply chain costs serve as an indicator of how efficiently resources are being used by different parts of the organization.

  • Linking Data Leads to Cost-Effective Supply Chain Decisions in Population Health Management

    March 16, 2018 | Content Areas: Strategic Planning | Tags: Analytics, Clinical Resource Management, Cost Management, CQO, Reimbursement | Formats: Article

    Healthcare delivery systems in the U.S. have traditionally targeted health intervention strategies at individuals rather than populations.

  • Supply Chain’s Expanding Role in the Social (Determinants) World

    March 16, 2018 | Content Areas: Leadership | Tags: Cost Management, CQO | Formats: Article

    Over the years, the concept of the Triple Aim has taken hold, with well over 100 participating organizations, including the AHA, among its champions. But along the way, there remains confusion about exactly what is meant by the health of populations. Clearing up this issue also provides important insights into the expanding relevance of the CQO movement and the supply chain profession in the broader healthcare landscape. As with so many things in healthcare, when it comes to defining population health, the answer varies, but it always comes down to improving both the quality and cost of care for a specific population.

  • Eskenazi UDI Capture Case Study

    January 12, 2018 | Content Areas: Strategic Planning | Tags: Data Standards, Regulatory, UDI | Formats: Case Study

    When the Office of the National Coordinator (ONC) for Health Information Technology issued a final rule that required the integration of UDIs into electronic health records (EHRs) for compliance with Meaningful Use 3 requirements, the Eskenazi Health team quickly started a project to determine how they could leverage their existing data standards work to meet the ONC’s deadlines.

    In 2015, during implementation of their Epic EHR system, the team decided its ERP supply database would be the sole source of truth for product related information, including UDIs, units of measure (UOM), and pricing. At that point, they began developing the required infrastructure to use barcode scanning to capture product UDIs at the point of use in minimally invasive procedural (MIPS) areas.
