GS1 standards in action – supporting healthcare’s digital transformation for better patient outcomes
Join us to learn how accelerated standards adoption will make a difference to every patient, worldwide.
Using 6 use cases with simple animations, this interactive resource explains the healthcare actors, relationships and GS1 standards application.
Safer, more efficient care starts with a simple scan.
Point of care scanning
Point of care scanning leveraging GS1 standards helps minimise medical errors, leading to improved patient safety.
Recording data in Clinical Systems
Using GS1 barcodes to record data in clinical systems improves speed and accuracy of data capture, enables clinical decision support, and improves traceability and recall of medical products.
The ability to identify products to the batch or serial number using GS1 standards facilitates more efficient, accurate and targeted recalls.
This is a fictional product recall, designed to highlight how GS1 standards can help to provide visibility and surety. Recall processes differ depending on the origin of the recall and on regulatory requirements of the jurisdiction in which it occurs.
GS1 standards improve traceability, visibility, and helps prevent falsified and substandard medicines reaching patients.
Accurate product data, exchanged using GS1 standards, leads to improved patient care and more efficient procurement, warehousing and payment activities.
Supply chain management
Efficient supply chain and inventory management based on GS1 standards creates visibility, ensures the required inventory levels, and can reduce waste.
