The UDI rule and non-sterile orthopedic implants (using technology to achieve full documentation)

Orthopedic surgeries are known to use some of the most complex medical inventory, as well as a high volume of items.

Recording utilization is therefore a difficult task, not least because of the many individual non-sterile nuts, bolts and screws that are utilized within orthopedic procedures.

The FDA’s UDI regulations for healthcare require hospitals and ambulatory care providers to accurately track medical devices and implants. Although this system is now embedded in general healthcare practice, a GS1 working group set up to look at nonsterile implants, recognized the particular issues healthcare providers have in complying with UDI regulations for this type of medical inventory.

Our latest video looks at specific issues that hospitals and outpatient providers struggle with when it comes to documenting the usage of non-sterile orthopedic implants.

We look at how new technology is now playing a key role in supporting full orthopedic item capture during surgery.
