Overcome Hospital Supply Chain Challenges

Address current needs and better prepare for future challenges with the help of GS1 Standards

The U.S. healthcare industry is changing rapidly and hospitals are being challenged to improve patient safety and quality of care while lowering costs, increasing efficiencies, and adapting to new legislation, reform, and regulation.

To help transform hospital supply chain efficiencies, many of today’s U.S.-based healthcare systems are using GS1 Standards to:

  • Record implant information in Electronic Health Records quickly and accurately
  • Improve the patient charge capture process
  • Simplify and enhance medication administration  
  • Support adverse event reporting and comparative effectiveness

The adoption and use of GS1 Standards can help hospitals increase efficiencies at each stage of the hospital supply chain – from receiving to pharmacy to patient room.
