GS1 Value of Trusted Product Data

Vital asset for health

At the epicentre of today’s changing healthcare sector, hospitals are pushing forward to provide quality patient care while faced with a number of challenges such as more regulations, new patient demands and rising costs.

In response, hospitals worldwide are stepping up to harness GS1 standards and technologies to streamline inefficient processes and improve patient safety. They are especially focused on gaining access to trusted product data—recognising it as a vital asset for the health of their processes and patients.

To better understand the impact of trusted product data, GS1 talked with healthcare providers and government agencies from different parts of the world. This paper summarises perspectives about their journeys to transform their hospital or even an entire country’s healthcare system for greater efficiencies, lower costs and improved patient outcomes.
