The Arthrex Journey: Achieving Data Requirements For UDI And Beyond

The next UDI Compliance deadline for Class 1 is September 24, 2020.  We want to make sure you are prepared to meet those requirements and evaluate the breadth of products that impact your company.

Many medical device manufacturers, including Arthrex, have already had to prepare for FDA’s UDI and meet compliance dates for Class III and Class II devices. Many more medical device manufacturers are in the midst of preparing for the upcoming Class I compliance date in 2020.

Getting to Good Data in the GUDID*

We can prepare and validate medical device product information before the compliance deadline, giving you more time to focus on producing the quality products your customers and patients love.

Recently 1WorldSync attended the UDI Conference that took place April 24 – 25 in Baltimore. Our healthcare experts were present and offered UDI implementation strategies and identify a sustainable process to successfully publish product content to the GUDID!

UDI: Generating Value Beyond Compliance

Getting to Good Data in the GUDID*

The United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA) regulation mandates that UDI data for Class I medical devices to be submitted with an impending deadline of September 24, 2020.  This has made medical device manufacturers on a global basis, readying their organizations for compliance. As a leading healthcare provider or manufacturer, do you find yourself asking yourself the following questions?

  • What is the scope of products impacted (exempted or not)?
  • What are my obligations under FDA UDI regulation?
  • How do I transform compliance into a competitive advantage?
  • How can I source my data from multiple locations, formats and systems, controlled by different functions?
  • How can I ensure the data I provide to the FDA is complete and accurate?

1WorldSync & Innovit Join Forces

Innovit,  a global provider of software solutions for PIM (Product Information Management), MDM (Master Data Management), GDSN (Global Data Synchronization) and Enterprise Workflow Management, and 1WorldSync™, the leading provider of product content solutions, possess a collaborative agreement to enable more robust product content capabilities for the medical device industry.

Whilst manual data entry or Excel spreadsheet upload may have been a viable solution for Class II & III submission deadlines, Class I poses a much greater challenge for labelers.  The sheer volume of products in this category makes manual submission methods too slow.  High product volume increases the burden of data collection, data cleansing and data entry to the GUDID.  The risk of failing to meet FDA’s deadline increases substantially.  

Innovit’s ‘UDI Multi-Connector’ is an automated, machine-to-machine data validation and submission system designed to address today’s needs for GUDID, as well as tomorrow’s needs for other global UDI recipients such as EUDAMED, NHS, and more.    

Whether your organization relies on a HIBC or a GTIN (or you’re looking for definitions on what those terms mean), 1WorldSync offers multiple solutions to send your data to the FDA. A primary benefit of submitting data through a 1WorldSync solution is that the data collected can be easily sent to other recipients, including GPOs, distributors, and other healthcare providers.

With the 1WorldSync UDI Solution, your business can prepare and validate medical device product information before the compliance deadline, giving you more time to focus on producing the quality products your customers and patients love.

One Process, One System and One-time Investment for Compliance. Advanced Readiness

Get ahead of the game and get back the time to focus on producing quality products your customers and patients love! For organizations manufacturing medical devices, 1WorldSync & Innovit experts can help organization prepare to meet the September 24, 2018 deadline through our comprehensive solutions.
