How to spend more time with patients

Our barcodes can be used to automatically capture information identifying products, locations and patients. They help to ensure accuracy and create efficiencies that allow caregivers to focus on their patients. 

With the help of GS1 barcodes, clinical staff in hospitals can:

  • Ensure the correct products are in the locations needed
  • Stop spending time searching for items or ordering stock
  • Be freed from undertaking activities such as packing surgical kits
  • Create a more streamlined environment freeing up time for clinical staff to care for patients 

Implement GS1 Standards


Giving time back to patient care

The initiative provides traceability of items used during surgery and procedures, improving the standard of care provided to patients and the Hospital's efficiency.
