Updates from the GS1 Global Healthcare Conference – Chicago #4

GS1 Global Healthcare Conference in Chicago, continued…

Tuesday afternoon the focus changed to Cost Savings through Standards with 3 separate healthcare groups showcasing what they have done to reduce costs within their systems and how their technology and savings initiatives have generated very acceptable ROI on the investments they made. The first presentation was from Dr. Justin Bitter, Business Manager, Bernhoven Hospital, the Netherlands, another European view into healthcare best practices and the last two groups were from the US showcasing what can be done here in North America as presented by Cynthia Shumway, Director, Supply Chain Business Applications, Intermountain Healthcare, US and Matthew Mentel, Executive Director, Integrated Performance Solutions and Betty Jo Rocchio, VP, Perioperative Services from Mercy Health Network, US. Again, real-life examples of what is being done around the globe using GS1 Global standards and industry best practices.
