UDI Implementations In Full Swing With Innovatum

UDI Implementations

So far this summer is off to a sizzling start with Innovatum managing seven global labeling UDI implementation projects concurrently. Four of these projects had their go live take place in the month of June 2015 alone! In conjunction with successfully submitting significant amounts of product UDI attribute information to the FDA Production Global UDI Database (GUDID) via Innovatum’s ROBAR Master Data Manager (ROBAR MDM) and ROBAR Communication Manager (ROBAR COM) products, Innovatum’s customers are taking advantage of Innovatum’s intensive experience with UDI implementation management. An extension of this for two major Medical Device Manufacturers is that they are now relying upon Innovatum’s expertise as a validation services provider to manage their complete validation processes.

Innovatum customers are fully exploiting the efficiencies of using ROBAR MDM and ROBAR Labeling along with ROBAR COM to deliver a system that uses one database to coalesce regulatory device and device production data throughout the enterprise and use the very same data for multiple purposes. The ROBAR product family does this while tightly managing security permissions and data access to various business departments. It makes the same data available for product labeling, can convert the data into Health Level 7 Structured Product Label (HL7 SPL) for regulatory data upload to the GUDID, and can supply product attribute data via a Global Data Synchronization Network (GDSN) certified data pool, a combination of data pools and other trading partners including “GUDID like variants” that will be required by other regulatory bodies.

According to Innovatum’s President Ardi Batmanghelidj, “Word is getting out. We have the only complete UDI management offering in the industry which includes a Master Data Management database that is the single source of truth or can get to the single source of truth. New fields can be added as requirements advance without a need for programming changes or validation. All of this data is easily tied to our industry leading medical device labeling system and/or our integrated regulatory data submissions and communication system though a few simple configuration changes. This greatly improves efficiency and reduces complexity by eliminating any requirements for duplicate approvals on the same data since one set of data is approved and then used for several purposes.” Innovatum has also announced its plans to integrate eIFU management starting in 2016 which further exploits the efficient use of this data. One of the overarching goals of Innovatum’s product set design is to minimize the involvement of IT resources required for implementation and on-going management.

The ROBAR Labeling, ROBAR MDM and ROBAR COM products maintain full audibility and are fully validatable in Medical Device Manufacturers environments with 21 CFR Part 11, 820, 830 and others. ROBAR Labeling is available separately or it can be used in conjunction with ROBAR MDM and ROBAR COM.
