From UDI to GDSN: How the Medical Device Data Landscape Keeps Evolving
July 24, 2018 11:00 am – July 24, 2018 12:00 pm (EDT), Webinar

This webinar has passed. Please see below for the recording.


With increasing frequency, medical device manufacturers are receiving requests for their product data from large customers, including Group Purchasing Organizations (GPOs) and hospital networks. These buyers often require a unique dataset to be transmitted to them by the manufacturer through the Global Data Synchronization Network (GDSN) for each product available for purchase. 

Many device manufacturers are unsure where to begin. Has their organization received a request? Who would know for sure? If so, who is responsible for implementing it? How do they go about collecting the data, getting it into the GDSN, keeping it secure and ensuring it is always up-to-date?

In this webinar, you will hear from a seasoned device professional who faced this challenge and coordinated her company’s approach, as well as from two device data experts at Reed Tech and 1WorldSync who helped develop solutions for it.

Join us for:

  • How STERIS pivoted from UDI compliance to commercial data exchange efforts
  • Who is asking for data in GDSN and why they need it
  • How the GDSN works
  • Best practices for collecting, storing, managing and syndicating device product data
  • Live Q&A from the audience
