Novation Applauds FDA's Unique Device Identification Rule
Date:7/5/2012

IRVING, Texas, July 5, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- The Food and Drug Administration's release of a proposed rule implementing a Unique Device Identification (UDI) system for medical devices represents a significant milestone for patient safety.     

Novation, the health care industry's leading supply contracting company for the members and affiliates of VHA Inc, UHC, Children's Hospital Association and Provista, has been an active advocate of UDI implementation for several years. 

"A robust UDI system will significantly enhance  product identification,  improve the device recall process, and ensure the integrity of the product throughout the transportation process, and most importantly, advance and improve patient safety," says Dan Sweeney, senior vice president of information and data services at Novation. "A UDI system also has the potential to generate significant savings for the health care industry through improved efficiencies and automated processes. Given the dramatic changes in finances and urgent patient safety needs, health care organizations and patients will benefit most from a swift implementation of a UDI system."
