Siemens Healthineers takes UDI implementation to next level for its digital transformation

Creating a Strategic Foundation of Quality Data

Siemens Healthineers helps healthcare providers transform the delivery of care while improving the patient experience. Using compliance with the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) Unique Device Identification (UDI) Rule* as the spark, Siemens Healthineers ignited systemic data governance, data quality, and data collaboration programs and processes that promise a future continuum of value.

An early supporter of GS1 Standards in healthcare, Siemens Healthineers recognized the benefits and advantages that using GS1 Standards can offer companies and supply chains. With numerous internal and external manufacturing sites and thousands of products, the company was determined to use its implementation of GS1 Standards as a broader opportunity to propel the company forward. This case study explains their GS1 Standards journey.

“We no longer treat GS1 Standards or UDI as a project or as an initiative. It is now a supply chain management—even a customer solution—strategy. It’s in our veins now. GS1 Standards are providing the foundation on which to build the next level.”

Elisa Bowling Program Director, Supply Chain Management Strategy and UDI Project Lead, Siemens Healthineers
