GS1 Canada and GHX Align to Make Canada's Healthcare Supply Chain More Efficient and Effective
Date:6/23/2009

Currently, many healthcare organizations use proprietary systems to name and identify products and related supply chain data. It has been demonstrated around the world that there are significant opportunities to increase efficiencies and cost savings through greater consistency and interoperability across the healthcare supply chain.

"A hospital's item master file, which stores information about frequently purchased products, is the heart and soul of its supply chain," commented David Loukras, BC Health Authority Shared Services. "If it contains errors, the entire supply chain is impacted. As every region in British Columbia transitions to one consolidated buying authority, such inconsistencies will have an even greater impact on the efficiency of our business processes. This will similarly affect other health regions in Canada shifting to shared services."

GS1 Canada's Healthcare Product Registry will contain globally standardized product descriptions that hospitals and healthcare organizations can use to continuously update their item master files, which in turn can improve the quality and precision of electronic data transactions for healthcare and pharmaceutical products. The registry also will receive data from the GDSN so that organizations with international trading partners have access to up-to-date product information from around the world. The GDSN is an Internet-based, interconnected network of interoperable data pools and the GS1 Global Registry, which enables companies around the world to exchange standardized and synchronized supply chain data with their trading partners.

"GS1 Canada is well-positioned for this task, given its expertise in global standards development and current operation of existing product registries for the pharmacy, food service and grocery sectors," says Nils Clausen, g
