Mercy/ROi and BD Collaborate to Improve Quality of Care and Reduce Costs
Date:1/19/2012

ST. LOUIS and FRANKLIN LAKES, N.J., Jan. 19, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Mercy/ROi and BD (Becton, Dickinson and Company) collaborated to achieve the first known instance in the United States where GS1 Standards, including bar codes, were integrated across the medical device supply chain.  GS1 Standards are global standards and solutions to improve the efficiency and visibility of supply and demand chains across multiple sectors. 

A new case study, Perfect Order and Beyond, describes how these standards were implemented in the clinical care setting (from manufacturing plant to patient bedside), driving supply chain optimization and enhancements to patient safety initiatives.  GS1 barcode data on products can eliminate errors and allow healthcare providers and manufacturers to speak the same language with this improved data tracking process.

"This collaboration provides a snapshot of how data standards can serve as a common platform for organizations throughout the healthcare supply chain to raise efficiency, drive unnecessary expenses out of the system and play an important technology role in patient care initiatives, including consistency in the electronic health record," explained Curtis Dudley, Vice President of Integrated Business Solutions, ROi, the healthcare supply chain company founded by Mercy.

ROi and BD established goals to achieve Perfect Order and viewed GS1 Standards as a tool that could be leveraged to improve the existing state of the healthcare supply chain. Perfect Order is an ideal in healthcare that represents true electronic order processing, from order placement to delivery and payment, without human intervention. The organizations achieved Perfect Order by modifying business processes and technical infrastructure.
