HSE wins the Healthcare Provider Advisory Council (HPAC) award for patient safety

At the recent GS1 Global Healthcare Conference in Mexico, the HSE received the Healthcare Provider Advisory Council (HPAC) award for patient safety for the very successful implementation of a national solution for the safe tracking of surgical instrument trays and endoscopes. This solution has already been rolled out to over 20 HSE hospitals with the remaining hospitals due to be completed this year. This excellent implementation demonstrates true interoperability using globally unique identification standards. We would like to extend our congratulations both to the HSE and to Pauline Biggane who accepted the award on behalf of the HSE.
