GS1 e-Connect
(November 2015)
28th Global GS1 Healthcare Conference
Held on 20 - 22 October 2015 at Budapest, Hungary, the 28th Global GS1 Healthcare Conference follows a vision to "Imagine One World, One Standard, One Vision: Improving Patient Safety".

Healthcare professionals worldwide are striving to provide their patients with the best possible care at all times. However, the effort to achieve this goal faces major challenges: counterfeiting, ineffective and difficult product recalls, medication errors and lack of inventory visibility – all of which are putting patients at risk.
GS1 Standards play a key role and make it possible to exchange unique product identification data across the entire healthcare supply chain. It is these standards that enable end-to-end visibility, no matter where or when a patient receives care. The humanitarian organisations USAID and United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA) explained how they plan to establish work streams to ensure end-to-end data visibility using GS1 Standards.

GS1 Singapore and Authenticateit© Partnership
GS1 Singapore has announced its collaboration with Authenticateit© (AIT), an Australian tech firm, to launch a new authentication and traceability solution for GS1 members and businesses in Singapore. The solution comes with an easy-to-use smart device app that allows consumers to access a product’s detailed information – such as recall status, product ingredients, and product origin – and verify the product’s supply source and authenticity prior to purchase.
