Safer, more efficient care starts with a simple scan.
GS1 is the standards organisation for globally unique identification, barcoding and traceability with offices in over 115 countries around the world. We help healthcare and other sectors to make their processes and solutions safer through the use of standardised identification, barcoding and tracking of products, assets, people, locations and more.
The adoption and implementation of GS1 standards is enabling seamless track and trace from manufacturer to the patient bedside. This improves patient safety and operational efficiencies as well as meeting regulatory compliance. GS1 Ireland is actively working the HSE, Hospitals, Suppliers and other stakeholders to embed the standards in their systems and processes enabling seamless track and trace from manufacturer to the patient bedside.
Implementation of GS1 standards-based solutions helps healthcare organisations to fulfill the 5 patient rights:
• Right patient
• Right drug or device
• Right time
• Right dose
• Right route
