Standards save: new research into patient safety

A recent independent academic thought paper by Dr. Anne SnowdonVisibility: The New Value Proposition for Health Systems- highlights how global standards improve safety and efficiency across healthcare and the critical role that GS1 standards can play in protecting patient safety and driving supply chain efficiency.

The report covers two years of research comprising in-depth interviews with over 50 Canadian and global experts (including seven Canadian provinces and global leaders from the USA, Australia and the UK), a detailed review of hospital and government records, as well as inclusion of prior Canadian and international research. It also identifies a number of key areas where Canada needs to develop stronger policies and practices around global standards in healthcare, if it is to join world leaders such as the UK and Australia.
