Data Synchronization for Healthcare

Harness the Value of Trusted Data with GDSN Implementation Resources

Healthcare stakeholders are recognizing trusted product data as a vital asset for helping to improve patient outcomes, achieve greater efficiencies, and lower costs. To facilitate seamless data sharing, manufacturers, distributors, providers and group purchasing organizations are leveraging the Global Data Synchronization Network™ (GDSN®) for exchanging accurate, reliable, complete and timely medical device and pharmaceutical product data.

If your company uses, or has plans to use, GDSN to access and share product information, these implementation resources will help you.

The GDSN is a data-sharing protocol that enables trading partners to share product master data with real-time updates. With GDSN, stakeholders can establish an authoritative data source to align product information across their internal systems as well as their trading partners.
