Updates from the GS1 Global Healthcare Conference – Chicago #3

There were 2 very compelling presentations from Wilfried Winzer, Director, University Hospital, Dresden, Germany and Kevin Downs, Director Finance and Keith Jones, Clinical Director of Surgery, from Derby Teaching Hospital, NHS, UK, that showcased leading-edge applications of GS1 Global standards, the usage of the GDSN (Global Data Synchronization Network) to obtain clean synchronized brand owner product data and the use of advanced supply chain practices which together gave 2 similar, but unique real world pictures, of what healthcare can look like from supplier to use in hospitals and from patient admission to discharge. All these technologies exist today, many have for years now, and for Canada to improve our global healthcare ranking we need to follow their lead.
