GS1 Healthcare Celebrating 15 years
On the 23rd of May 2005, the GS1 Healthcare User Group (later renamed to GS1 Healthcare) was established. The aim of the global user group was to lead the Healthcare sector in the development and implementation of global standards. Over the next fifteen years the group has had an enormous effect through its engagement with regulatory bodies and stakeholders worldwide.
As GS1 Healthcare celebrates its 15th anniversary this year, we are reminded of just how much we have accomplished together and the outstanding impact we have made to help improve accuracy, visibility and traceability across healthcare to improve patient safety worldwide. In honour of this momentous milestone, we are taking a moment to reflect on the last 15 years, as well as imagine what the future holds.
