How to manage effective medical device recalls?

Our barcodes ensure accurate recording of product movement, from arrival at the hospital to application to the patient. They allow for more effective recall management.

With the help of GS1 barcodes, hospitals can:

  • Identify whether recalled products are within their facilities
  • Enable targeted activity during a recall situation
  • Improve patient safety by being able to pinpoint impacted patients ┬ámore accurately and quickly

Work with us

We aim to lead the healthcare sector to the successful development and implementation of global barcodes. Learn from other healthcare providers about how you can harness the power of global barcodes to even more effectively manage recalls in your hospital.
