The Critical Link Between Cost, Quality, and Outcomes (CQO) and Unique Device Identification (UDI) White PaperJuly 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 goal of this document is to provide a guide for supply chain partners to begin a dialogue to ensure that medical devices comply with FDA’s Unique Device Identification (UDI) requirements as well as meet the FDA’s goal of enhancing patient safety. Low Unit of Measure (LUM) programs are complex and the steps outlined in this best practices document are a critical first step. We expect this to be an ongoing process as additional opportunities for stakeholder collaboration continue to arise.

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.
