Healthcare Conference Track

Bookmark this page and check back often for Healthcare Community-focused updates and features.

The Healthcare Track at GS1 Connect is designed by industry for industry to help companies address business challenges and regulatory requirements leveraging GS1 Standards. At GS1 Connect, you’ll learn from standards experts, how to harness the latest standards-based supply chain best practices, improve business and care delivery processes, and prepare for U.S. FDA Unique Device Identification (UDI) and the Drug Supply Chain Security Act (DSCSA).


Business demands and resource constraints often drive the need to examine problems from fresh perspectives. When you address a supply chain or business process challenge in a new way leveraging GS1 Standards, you become an innovator. As you share your learnings with your peers and discuss the implementation implications with your trading partners, you bring collaboration into the process that is so critical to transforming entire industries. This is what GS1 Connect is all about. See what the Healthcare Track has to offer in Austin in 2015.
