GS1 Healthcare data sharing – GDSN

Our global standards enable healthcare partners to have automatic and efficient access to product data location information and transactional messages.

Global Data Synchronisation Network in healthcare

Data synchronisation enables healthcare trading partners to share trusted product data, locally and globally, in an automatic and efficient way. This enable reduction in errors and increased efficiency. Inconsistent, inaccurate and outdated product information makes it, for example, nearly impossible for hospitals to conduct effective supply chain procurement. This can have a ripple effect across all other processes and systems in a hospital which require accurate and correct product information, ultimately affecting patient safety.
