The Reed Tech Life Sciences Team is pleased to announce that we are now offering a full-service solution to allow medical device organizations to share product data with trading partners through the Global Data Synchronization Network (GDSN). This will allow device companies to repurpose and combine their FDA UDI compliance efforts to fulfill upcoming requirements of the UK’s National Health Service for eProcurement, and product data requests from buyers, including Group Purchasing Organizations (GPOs) and influential hospital networks.

This service solution was rapidly developed in response to feedback from medical device customers who are struggling with meeting the NHS September 2017 deadline for eProcurement submissions and to fulfill contractual obligations from key buyers.

This offering is made possible through collaboration with 1WorldSync™, the leading provider of product content solutions. Through the integration of data exchange capabilities from 1WorldSync with Reed Tech product data management solutions, the two organizations together are able to offer device manufacturers a single full-service approach to medical device data management.

For current Reed Tech customers, this development enhances the value of the Reed Tech UDI solutions, allowing them to capitalize on their investment in product data accuracy. For device labelers who are still determining their long-term approach to UDI compliance, this is an opportunity to evaluate current and upcoming requirements for submitting to regulatory authorities and sharing device product data with customers globally.

On May 23, Reed Tech and 1WorldSync will co-present a free webinar for industry members on how to meet the UK NHS eProcurement deadline and provide product data to buyers.

Industry members may contact Reed Tech at any time with questions about this solution, or with questions about UDI, GDSN or eProcurement.

Reed Tech and 1WorldSync experts will also be available to meet with industry members in person at the upcoming UDI Conference in Baltimore (June 7-8) and GS1 Connect in Las Vegas (June 19-22).
