The top 10 reasons you should attend the GS1 Healthcare US Group Workshop: Using GS1 Standards for UDI Compliance

You have the responsibility of managing Unique Device Identification (UDI) requirements within your organization. With the goal of complying while also enhancing patient safety and supply chain efficiencies, UDI also represents a major opportunity for industry collaboration and the streamlining of business processes both internally and externally with your trading partners.

By attending the workshop, you will bring valuable UDI and standards knowledge back to your company and enhance your own professional development.

  3. The latest on GUDID activity – Learn what information has to be submitted to the GUDID and in what format.
  4. How to use the GDSN – Learn why many healthcare companies are finding that synchronizing data via the Global Data Synchronization Network™ (GDSN®) is a valuable method to identify medical devices and share product attributes. 
  5. Ways to map GDSN information to the GUDID – Find out how the GDSN can help streamline your data submissions to the GUDID.
  6. Who needs to be involved and why – Regulatory teams, supply chain teams, master data teams and more should be involved in UDI decision making. Learn the valuable roles everyone plays within your organization in UDI implementation and beyond.
