Learning UDI Community

Description The AHRMM Learning UDI Community (LUC) is an industry collaborative effort designed to address issues impacting the implementation and use of unique device identifiers by developing a common understanding and approach to UDI adoption. At 280 plus members, the (LUC) brings together representatives from many of the major healthcare sectors with the focus on identifying issues impacting UDI adoption across the healthcare field, and developing solutions through the formation of cross-functional work groups made up of subject matter experts and stakeholders. The findings and recommendations of the work groups are designed to benefit the healthcare field by providing a more consistent, consensus-based processes to support UDI adoption and are shared through the Learning UDI Repository. Providing public access to this shared knowledge base will increase the likelihood of success in accelerating UDI adoption practices and utilization. The Learning UDI Community Steering Committee is not an advisory committee to the U.S. FDA. For more information regarding the community and it's work groups please visit us at www.ahrmm.org/luc or email Mike Schiller at mschiller@aha.org.
