The October HIT Standards Committee reviewed the FDA Universal Device Identifier NPRM, the transition of the NwHIN to a public/private partnership, and an update from ONC on S&I Framework/related programs. 

Jamie Ferguson presented a very thoughtful list of recommendations to the FDA, including the notion that all healthcare devices, including consumer devices, should have a universal device identifier that can be used as metadata when exchanging information.  A UDI will help us understand the nature of the data, the accuracy of the data, and the range of possible data from each healthcare device.
