Thought Leadership on Medical Device Management
Champion’s senior leaders, led by CEO Pete Casady, have become the healthcare industry’s go-to source for expertise on the provider side of medical device management. We have been at the forefront of promoting the UDI rule, making dozens of presentations to associations and conferences and writing articles and papers to inform the industry. We have designed solutions to make the highest and best use of UDI data to reduce waste and inefficiency in medical device management, while helping to avert patient harm. Using the experience from hundreds of hospitals nationwide, we tell the story of how UDI, RFID storage, and recall management can transform the healthcare supply chain and patient care.
