This clinical statement represents a particular device that was placed in or used
as part of a procedure or other act. This provides a record of the identifier and
other details about the given product that was used. For example, it is important
to have a record that indicates not just that a hip prostheses was placed in a patient
but that it was
a particular hip prostheses number with a unique identifier.
The FDA Amendments Act specifies the creation of a Unique Device Identification (UDI)
System that requires the label of devices to bear a unique identifier that will standardize
device identification and identify the device through distribution and use.
