Integrity
  • Neither ECRI nor any of its staff has a
    financial interest in the sale of any medical
    technology. ECRI and its staff accept no
    royalties, gifts, finders fees, or commissions
    from the medical device or pharmaceutical
    industries and are not permitted to own stock in
    or undertake consulting work for such industries.

Delivery of Knowledge and Judgment
  • Publications
  • Web-based information databases
  • Telephone, letter, fax, and e-mail consultation
  • On-site consultation
  • Technical assistance
  • Training programs
  • Symposia

9
Healthcare Technology
  • Devices, equipment, and related computers and
    software
  • Drugs
  • Biotechnologies
  • Medical and surgical procedures
  • Healthcare information systems

10
Medical Devices
  • Devices, apparatus, or systems employed for
    the prevention, diagnosis, or treatment of
    disease in humansthat do not normally enter
    metabolic pathways.

11
The Universe of Medical Devices
  • 7,000 Generic Entities
  • 1,500 Capital Equipment Products
  • 2,000 Surgical Instruments
  • 500 Implantable Devices
  • More than 2,000,000 Brands, Models, and Sizes
  • More than 30,000 Manufacturers

12
Nomenclature
  • The name of the device category that defines that
    exclusive class of entities to which the device
    under consideration belongs (e.g., single-channel
    electrocardiograph, steam sterilizer).

13
Universal Medical Device Nomenclature System
(UMDNS)
  • A standard nomenclature developed and maintained
    by ECRI since 1973 to support data
    categorization, storage, retrieval, and exchange.
  • Used in more than 70 nations by government,
    hospitals, health systems, and industry for
    medical device planning, procurement, management,
    and regulation.
  • Available free to government and nonprofit health
    facilities.

14
UMDNS Structure
  • Single term for each distinct entity
  • Unique code number for each term
  • Heavily cross-indexed
  • Hierarchical vocabulary
  • Widespread use

15
UMDNS Code Numbers
  • Each unique term has a unique five-digit
    code number. Code numbers do not carry
    information. Older national systems used
    alphabetical or numerical codes to convey
    information such as clinical department or
    medical specialty. This imposes significant
    limitations (e.g., many of the same devices are
    used in different departments or different
    medical specialties).
