Senior Vice-President Healthcare
13 July 2020
GS1 Healthcare is a global, voluntary user community bringing together all healthcare supply chain stakeholders, including manufacturers, distributors, healthcare providers, solution providers, regulatory bodies and industry associations. Our role is to facilitate a neutral and open environment to lead the successful development and implementation of global GS1 standards enhancing patient safety, operational and supply chain efficiencies.
As such, GS1 Healthcare envisions a future in which the healthcare sector achieves harmonised implementation of global standards in business and clinical processes enabling interoperability, optimal quality and efficiency of healthcare delivery to benefit patients.
The Director Healthcare Engagement will have responsibility for matters related to GS1 Healthcare’s interaction with the Healthcare Provider community, the GS1 Member Organisations (MO’s) and the global users in the Healthcare sector. Therefore, it is critical for the position that the candidate has significant and extensive work experience in the provider environment.
The position will have responsibility for the execution of projects and programs that advance the GS1 Healthcare strategy as it relates to the healthcare provider stakeholders, one of the important pillars in the 5-years strategy. The strategy and direction of GS1 Healthcare’s work is determined by the GS1 Healthcare Leadership Team, a group of annually elected representatives of stakeholders from across the supply chain and GS1 MO’s.
The successful candidate will have the opportunity to work with GS1 Member Organisations from across the world, but also with global healthcare stakeholders. The ability to build, maintain and drive relationships with key healthcare provider organisations is very important as these are key partners for GS1 Healthcare. In this role he/she will ensure that the benefits of global standards are well explained to and understood by hospitals and retail pharmacies across the world. The journey to involve hospitals worldwide started three years ago and there are still a lot of innovative thoughts and approaches needed to move implementation forward for the benefit of every patient. As such, this role requires a passion for this part of the supply chain, a deep understanding of the processes and the commitment to make a difference for patient safety. This role will play an important part in helping drive global healthcare forward and ultimately improve human health outcomes.
The role requires also involvement in the activities to enable global harmonisation of GS1 implementation, which is mainly driven by the GS1 Healthcare Public Policy team. Knowledge and expertise in this area is a distinct advantage. Engagement with provider and patient associations will be part of the responsibilities.
In this role one focus would be also on the development of the role of GS1 in Digital Health, with a special focus on the impact of the Coronavirus pandemic, to enable deeper understanding of the benefits of global standards in this environment.
