GS1 Standards in Healthcare - Unique Device Identification (UDI)

Carestream endorses the use of the GS1 system of standards as a superior solution addressing all aspects of product identification, product barcoding, and electronic trading transactions. The use of GS1 standards is expected to drive complexity out of routine operations, improve operational efficiency, improve patient safety, and ensure compliance with key regulations. The Unique Device Identification (UDI) System as mandated by the FDA, assigns a unique identifier to medical devices and will create a common vocabulary for reporting, and enhance electronic tracking abilities.
