Tracking Medical Device Questions

Introduction:Read this information and determine for yourself what the tracking medical device will mean to you. It is now in the United States health care systems quite possibly where you go for professional care.

  • 01

    Inventory Control

    In July 2012 the FDA approved an UDI (Unique Device Identifier). This device is recommended for all hospitals, Emergency Room, doctor's offices, Out patient clinics and other medical facilities. When used this equipment will permit faster and more efficient inventory control.The data will make medical facilities better supplied for the most used equipment.When in top performance the inventory will be adequately stocked and not have shortages because of the UDI.

  • 02

    Defective Equipment

    Tracking medical devices can quickly detect defective equipment so it can be replaced. When the replacement of the defective equipment is not needed the repairs can more easily be known so those remedies can be done too. Since 2007 the UDI (Unique Device Identifier) has been waiting for the FDA approval. It is now approved by the FDA and is being widely used in the United States.

  • 03

    Standardized Global System

    As part of Obamacare program the UDI will be invaluable. Instead of several sporadic systems not linking the Unique Device Identifier combine all methods into one global system.Codes will be universally used combining record data to electronically file in documents.There have been pilot tests, yet the full implementation of the Unique Device Identifier has not been in existence for evaluation of accuracy or absolute effectiveness and acceptance.The costly expenditure for the UDI is of course backed by the administration to cut costs as mentioned in this list.

  • 04

    Electronic Heath Availability

    Instead of individuals carrying written health records from home to the health care facilities, this Unique Device Identifier will prevent the need for that. During the doctor and clinic visits each health event will be compiled into one electronic base.Transferring records will be done easily from one health care provider to another.A concern of cyber security could be a paramount thought since many groups of people have raised this long before the device was approved.

  • 05

    Medical Accessibility

    Tracking Medical devices make medical information from the recent office visits and distant past medical and surgical professional activities easy. As soon as a person needs medical data all it takes is a press of some keys on the keyboard.The printer can then avail anyone to a copy of or part of all of that record.It is questionable how the protection of people's personal security information will not be breached in this transfer.Will this mandate a personal chip or other identifying items to positively guarantee American citizens safety?




Final Thoughts

One observation an individual might see is that this is yet another way the freedom of American and citizens of all countries are relinquished. When a personal medical record becomes global a question of security might invoke concern.

    There are definately pros and cons. In some cases, I think we try to fix what is not broken because it is easier than addressing what is broken...which is not to say healthcare is not broken...but typically hospitals have very good inventory control measures. h5
