Premier adopted Global Data Synchronization™ (GDSN®) in 2009 and since then has been helping its more than 2,500 hospital members and 78,000-plus other healthcare sites further enhance patient safety and reduce costs in the healthcare industry sector. Premier was the first GPO to announce its endorsement of GS1® supply chain standards, and was also the first to expect its manufacturers to comply with this important initiative. Use of the standards allows supply chain stakeholders to definitively identify all items purchased by healthcare providers and efficiently exchange and update this information.
All partners in the healthcare supply chain need to be aware of this industry-wide initiative and understand the benefits of using one common global data standard. The Healthcare Tool Kit (listed on the right navigation bar) supports these industry sunrise goals and provides what you need to know to get started with GS1 Standards today.
You can access the Healthcare Supplier Tool Kit at www.gs1us.org/hcsuptoolkit.
