The UDI Impacts on Recall Management Work Group, a part of AHRMM's Learning UDI Community (LUC), has released their recommended practices reports that analyzes the barriers and highlights the benefits to patient safety and key stakeholder groups when utilizing the UDI throughout the recall process. Work group members identified recommended practices for each of these groups underscoring mutual areas for improvement in the safety and efficacy of the recall process. In addition to the two Impact Reports, there is also a comprehensive Regulatory Resource Guide and a Supporting Information document with detailed reports, resource links, surveys and summary presentations that the work group members created, as well as a Recall Time & Cost Collection Tool.
Though the health care industry is continuing to tackle the COVID-19 pandemic, many industry leaders are also looking to build a more resilient supply chain by asking, “What could we have done differently?”, and “How should we prepare for future pandemics and other crises?”
As health care emerges from the COVID-19 pandemic, supply chain resiliency is a priority. One primary consideration has been how to develop inventory reserves to mitigate the risk of severe product shortages.

The AHRMM Cost, Quality, and Outcomes (CQO) Movement was launched in 2013 to advance the role of the health care supply chain in delivering better quality care at a more affordable cost and in a manner that delivers the highest value to patients. The CQO Movement explores the inter-relationships between cost, quality, and outcomes (as defined below) as opposed to the more historic view in which these factors were considered separately, often by different functions within the hospital environment, e.g., clinical, financial, etc.
Overview: The Business Case for the UDI work group, a formal work group of the Association for Healthcare Resource & Materials Management’s (AHRMM) Learning UDI Community (LUC) is comprised of more than 75 members representing the association, manufacturing/supplier, hospital, regulatory, consulting, group purchasing organizations (GPOs), and solution provider communities. Within this group are five sub groups that are addressing one of five process flows that could potentially change following healthcare organizations’ adoption of the UDI.
Most of us have heard the term “population health” but is it simply a healthcare buzzword or a program that can truly drive better costs, quality, and outcomes? AHRMM assembled a task force comprised of experts in the fields of healthcare supply chain, finance, and value analysis to examine the current population health management landscape in order to determine what impact these programs are having on the physical and behavioral health of people and the financial health of hospitals, health systems, and other health-related community organizations.
As the Institute for Healthcare Improvement’s (IHI) Triple Aim continues to be adopted by hospitals and health systems as a framework for implementing major improvements, AHRMM has established a clear and important connection between AHRMM’s Cost, Quality, and Outcomes (CQO) Movement and the goals of the Triple Aim.
Introduction Healthcare provider stakeholders, including physicians, clinicians and supply chain professionals utilize data to make procurement decisions for medical devices to ensure and improve patient access to high quality devices. The integrity of these decisions depends upon the accuracy and completeness of the underlying data. There are three (3) significant challenges to accurate and complete data on medical device quality:
In 2016, AHRMM convened the AHRMM CQO Task Force, a group of healthcare leaders collaborating to identify real world examples of supply chain’s alignment with the Triple Aim. The IHI Triple Aim framework was developed by the Institute for Healthcare Improvement in Cambridge, Massachusetts to describe an approach to optimizing health system performance (www.ihi.org).
In 2015, AHRMM convened the AHRMM Thought Leader Task Force, an exploratory group tasked with uncovering applications of the Cost, Quality, and Outcomes (CQO) Movement across the healthcare field. The Task Force objectives were developed based on recommendations from the first ever Thought Leader Summit on CQO held at the 2014 AHRMM Conference and Exhibition.
