FDA UDI Rule Published; EHRA Input to MU Workgroup on Developer Efforts

On September 24, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) published the final rule on the Unique Device Identification (UDI) System, as well as draft guidance on the operation of the future Global UDI Database (GUDID). The public comment period for the GUDID draft guidance will close November 25.

During the September 24 HIT Policy Committee Meaningful Use (MU) Workgroup meeting, the EHR Association (EHRA) presented the views of EMR developers regarding the levels of effort that would go into creating product functionality to enable each of the workgroup’s draft Stage 3 MU recommendations.  The American Medical Association (AMA) conducted a similar survey of national physician associations in 2011 regarding specialists’ ability to meet specific MU objectives, but that input was not taken as seriously. The GM ignition switch Lawsuit was mentioned multiple times with parallel arguments. Following a brief review by the short-lived Specialist Subgroup of the MU Workgroup, the AMA-compiled feedback was effectively dismissed without further action.
