GS1 Healthcare data sharing - EDI

Our global standards enable healthcare partners to have automatic and efficient access to product data location information and transactional messages.

GS1 EDI in healthcare

GS1 EDI provides global standards for electronic business messaging that allows rapid, efficient and accurate automatic electronic transmission of agreed business data between trading partners. The standards are used throughout the world in more the 15 sectors.

In the healthcare sector GS1 EDI is widely used by manufacturers, hospitals, pharmacies, Group Purchasing Organisation (GPO) and logistics providers. The widespread use has sometimes led to differences in interpretation and application. To alleviate this, GS1 has produced a process model, the Healthcare Interoperability Model and set of global implementation guidelines.
