Mercy’s work in implantable device identification continues to garner national attention.

The unique device identifier (UDI) demonstration project improves patient care and cuts costs. It even paved the way for the FDA to use the project for a new national system of post-market medical device safety surveillance.

Mercy’s lessons learned were recently published by Healthcare: The Journal of Delivery Science and Innovation. The article, written by Mercy’s Dr. Joseph Drozda, Curtis Dudley, Paul Helmering, James Roach and Lisa Hutchison, discusses the challenges of implementing a hospital-based medical device identification system along with the solutions, showing how such a system can work at hospitals across the nation.
