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

This imposes significant limitations (e.g., many of the same devices are used in different departments or different medical specialties). </li></ul>
