GS1 in Healthcare
Risks to patient safety occur when there is a mismatch between a patient and the intended care they receive. When looking at how technology can improve patient safety, it is important that best practice standards are designed in from the start. GS1 Standards help to support the five patient rights; right patient, right drug or device, right time, right dose, and, right route.
GS1 Ireland take learnings from their work with other sectors, such as retail, to improve traceability and efficiencies in the HSE and hospitals using international barcode standards.
