Quebec’s Ministry of Health and Social Services (MSSS) Launches GDSN Initiative

As the entire Canadian Healthcare community moves towards a completely digital supply chain, supported by the use of the GS1 GDSN for clean, accurate and timely data, Quebec joins the movement by requesting GDSN product data from vendors.

Having determined earlier that a very high percentage of purchase orders created and released by Quebec Healthcare Providers contained errors that were the result of poor quality Item Masters, and that processing these orders added significant costs to hospital ‘back offices’ the decision has been made to use the GDSN to help clean and maintain accuracy of the item masters across the province.

Commport is working very closely with the MSSS to ensure that all vendors are introduced to the GDSN program and can make their product data available for the Quebec Healthcare community.
