Louise Murphy Product Manager, Market Tracking | Medical Supply Distribution

Product Information Management (PIM): Your Tool to Expanded Selling Opportunities

As manufactures, do we truly understand the power of well-organized and accurate product data, and how best to share this data with our distributor channel partners?  HIDA recognized that our industry does not utilize a universal standard when communicating product information and developed a PIM workgroup comprised of manufacturers and distributors to help establish a better path forward.  Kendall Lemmert is leading this effort and will share the work currently being done on this very important initiative.

But our data work is not done there.  Next, we will be introduced to Clarivate, who HIDA is now contracted with as a supplier of market data for our industry.  (Previously contracted with GHX).  Louise Murphy will walk us through the services that Clarivate offers and how capturing and reviewing product data can help better chart the course of success for any business.

Data drives better decisions, and providing good product data from the start will allow for more meaningful data throughout.

It is HMMC’s goal to continue to share information as it relates to the UDI label requirements. Many of our manufactured products are used in kits, packaged and sold with other manufactured products. The attached Guidance Document was published to aid in the understanding of when and where a UDI should be applied. The FDA is hosting a webinar on Tuesday, May 21, 2019, from 3:00 PM to 4:30 PM to further review this information. Click Here.


Date: March 21, 2019

Mercy Health worked with Tecsys to produce the attached video which shows the power of centralized data and utilization of UDI. While this is just one example of one area within a health system, it’s not too much of a leap to take to see how it can help efficiencies across many different areas.

If you have not yet embraced the power behind UDI utilization and how being UDI compliant is important, perhaps this video will help. Click HERE to view video.

GS1 publishes case study of effective use of UDI
