This Work Group is tasked with:
· Defining criteria that identify high risk implants
· Developing an API to be used to query the GUDID for the items that meet this criteria
The work of this group ties directly to the X12 proposal to include Device Identifiers (DI) in the claims forms and comments to the FDA recommending a more refined list of high risk implants whose DI would be included in claims, as opposed to all items/all DIs.
