GS1 Healthcare Online Summit 17-19 November 2020

Global Standards for Global Health

Online Summit 2020

A global online conversation to discuss the future of standards for healthcare.

Our first online GS1 Healthcare event brought together 582 virtual participants from 85 countries. During 3 day, delegates discover innovative projects being undertaken globally, with a distinct focus on supply chain and traceability in times of pandemic uncertainty.

The stremed discussions covered several critical issues connected with the role of standards in a crisis, data quality and data sharing, enabling pharmaceutical traceability in supply chains, unique medical device identification (UDI), hospital implementation, clinical trials, and digital technologies in healthcare. During the Online Summit, the audience had the opportunity to ask questions to the speakers. In case you’re interested in hearing the answer to a specific question, please send an email to

We will not only have the opportunity to learn about the work being done in different regions, but we will discover how all parts of the healthcare supply chain are coming together in support of patient safety.
