Healthcare is a complex and global industry sector.

The use of GS1 standards in healthcare assists in increasing patient safety, helps drives supply chain efficiencies, provides frameworks to improve the traceability of medicines and devices, and supports clinical process.

GS1 Australia works closely, both locally and globally, with the healthcare industry to develop and support the implementation of global standards and solutions, consistent with industry improvement.

While patient safety is paramount in healthcare, other drivers such as the ability to identify and authenticate pharmaceuticals and medical devices, track and trace products from manufacture to the point of care, improve efficiencies and enable 'value chain' improvement are also vitally important.
