Certificate Education and Implementation Resources
Healthcare providers have been at the forefront of the transition to Electronic Health Records (EHRs) as part of a mandate within the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act enacted in 2009. An important part of the EHR regulation provides criteria for doctors and other caregivers to be certified for “meaningful use.” The Meaningful Use Stage 3 requirements make it a requirement to capture UDI on implantable devices, beginning in 2018.
Throughout the evolution of these programs and regulations, GS1 Standards have provided the needed foundation for enabling compliance by pharmaceutical and medical device manufacturers, supply chain participants including distributors, warehouses, and shippers, and by healthcare providers—all with a focus on better patient outcomes and safety.
As a healthcare provider, superior patient outcomes and service experiences with optimized bottom line results, are most likely top of mind for you. GS1 Standards can help promote patient safety and hospital supply chain efficiencies. These courses and resources have been developed to help your organization use the GS1 System of Standards to promote patient safety and hospital supply chain efficiencies.
