UDI Data Distribution | GHX

UDI Data Distribution

As a medical device manufacturer, you’re aware of the U.S. Food and Drug Administration’s (FDA’s) unique device identification (UDI) rule, but submitting standardized product data to GUDID is only part of your challenge. You need to be able to synchronize product data with customers and business partners, ultimately preparing you for expected future global regulatory requirements.

The GHX UDI Data Distribution Solution provides you with a “Single Pipe” that allows both GUDID and GDSN data to flow into a single system. That system then distributes the data globally to the required end-user or global regulatory bodies.

This solution combines our UDI Submission service with GHX Health ConneXion, the only GDSN-certified data pool focused solely on the healthcare industry, while also providing GHX consulting experts who can guide you in meeting both current and future data submission needs.

GHX's key differentiators:

  • Combined GHX/PTC company expertise and viability
  • Technical architecture for managing submissions to the FDA, future global regulatory bodies, GDSN trading partners and eCommerce trading partners
  • Validated compliance with 21 CFR Part 11 requirements and 21 CFR Parts 820 and 830
  • Simplified transition of data via single inbound/outbound using .csv or XML file formats
  • Pre-verification of FDA UDI Submission
  • Submission monitoring and visibility to FDA acknowledgments, as well as rejection error processing workflows
  • Data synchronization engine source refresh
  • Ability to drive industry adoption of UDI to the point of use
  • Extensive professional expertise tailored to your specific implementation needs
