Patient Identification: A Vital Aspect of Patient Safety

Patient misidentification constitutes one of the most serious risks to patient safety in hospitals or clinics.

Today identification of the patient by the caregiver is still generally checked manually. This human interaction is inevitably prone to error and may result in patient harm when carrying out vital activities such as surgery, medication administration, blood transfusions, or other medical procedures.

Coding is Fundamental:
The Importance of Global Traceability and Serialization Compliance for Pharma
Article courtesy of

Industry analysts predict that the total global expenditure
on medicine is likely to reach more than $1 trillion by 2017. The projected annual pharmaceutical market growth through 2017 in emerging markets has been estimated at 13% - significantly higher than the 2% projected for mature markets.

Given the existing threats to consumer safety and brand integrity, supply chain security is of the utmost concern to pharmaceutical manufacturers and regulators. These challenges have resulted in the immediate need for effective global traceability and the implementation of secure track and trace protocols across various touch points.
GS1 SmartSearch - Increase sales through more relevant search results

Our GS1 SmartSearch standard and guideline allows businesses to increase salesthrough:
  • More relevant search results
  • More detailed and accurate product information displayed in search results
The GS1 SmartSearch standard and guideline achieves these benefits by making it possible to create structured data about a product and relate this data to its GTIN. The structured data about the product can then be used by search engines, smartphone apps, etc. to deliver a richer experience to the consumer.
