In a world of regulatory compliance, there has never been a more important time for the healthcare industry to address product information management.
Patient safety, medical device traceability, and government regulations are having a profound effect on product information within the healthcare industry. The demands are growing and it is essential that healthcare companies find a comprehensive and cost-effective approach to manage, collect, validate and distribute information.

The Benefits of the 1WorldSync Healthcare Solution
The European Medical Device Regulation & EUDAMED
The European Medical Device Regulation (EU MDR) ensures high standards of quality and safety for medical devices being produced in or supplied into Europe. It will establish a robust, transparent, predictable and sustainable regulatory framework for medical devices to ensure a high level of health and safety whilst supporting innovation by establishing a European UDI database – EUDAMED. EU MDR is relevant to any organization producing or supplying medical device products to the EU.
