6 About GS1The GS1 System is the most widely used supply chain standards system in the world, utilized in twenty-three sectors and industries including GS1’s core sectors of Healthcare and Fast Moving Consumer Goods (FMCG), as well as Transport, Defense and many others.About GS1 Healthcare USGS1 Healthcare US is an industry group that focuses on driving the adoption and implementation of GS1 Standards in the healthcare industry in the United States to improve patient safety and supply chain efficiency. GS1 Healthcare US brings together members from all segments of the healthcare industry to address the issues that most impact healthcare in the United States. Facilitated by GS1 US, GS1 Healthcare US is one of twenty-seven local GS1 Healthcare user groups around the world that supports the adoption and implementation of global standards developed by GS1.
7 IMPROVING HEALTHCARE BUSINESS PROCESSES WITH GS1 STANDARDS
8 Demand to Inventory: GS1 Standards ensure that the right product gets to the right location at the right time by making forecasting and replenishment activities visible throughout the supply chain with production and inventory deployment. By enabling the supplier to provide the buyer accurate and standardized data as part of the order, the buyer can subsequently source the correct product at the correct level of packaging.
9 Order to Cash: The use of GS1 product and location identifiers improves order and invoice accuracy by reducing confusion in the item’s unit of measure, orders, and pricing. By increasing item attribute accuracy, order processing is streamlined, reducing time and money spent correcting errors and discrepancies.
10 Account to Report: GS1 Standards enable the provision of accurate, valid, and supported accounting information, driving best practices and optimized performance over time. From general accounting activities to external reporting, fixed and liquid asset inventory, and cost accounting, GS1 Standards improve the quality of financial data in these areas.
11 Procure to Pay: The use of GS1 product and location identifiers streamlines the movement of goods/services into your order to cash cycle optimizing upstream activities. When integrated as part of your sourcing system, GS1 Standards enable you to efficiently and effectively move your products into inventory or make them consumables as quickly as possible.
12 Master Data Management: GS1 Standards ensure that the provision of accurate weights and dimensions for storage, handling, and warehousing purposes are consistent. While master data, such as these examples, rarely changes, it is often used across a multitude of applications. An error in this data can be proliferated across the supply chain resulting in untold damage and loss.
13 Product to Patient: Patient safety is improved with the use of GS1 Standards. Consistent data standards provide visibility and insight into every area that a healthcare product touches—from manufacturer, sourcing, and distribution to delivery, patient use, and electronic recording to billing, reimbursement, and beyond.
14 Logistics: GS1 Standards provide accurate dimensions and weights for warehousing and hospital storage optimization. Hospitals and other health facilities are finding that storage areas are being reduced as more space is claimed for patient facilities. As such, optimization of available storage space is critical, and the use of GS1 Standards greatly improves this process.
15 An opportunity for a new kind of healthcare innovation ‘‘ Implementing global standards across the entire healthcare supply chain could save 22, ,000 lives and avert 0.7 million to 1.4 million patient disabilities ‘‘‘‘ Rolling out such standards-based systems globally could prevent tens of millions of dollars’ worth of counterfeit drugs from entering the legitimate supply chain. ‘‘“ Today, the healthcare industry has half a trillion dollars tied up in inventory, but better collaboration enabled through global standards could reduce obsolescence and inventory redundancy”“[We] estimate that healthcare cost could be reduced by $40 billion - $100 billion globally” from the implementation of global standards(Source: McKinsey report, “Strength in unity: The promise of global standards in healthcare”, October 2012)A new and independent report by McKinsey & Company has estimated the benefits - in lives and value - of implementing one single global standard in Healthcare.The Healthcare industry faces major challenges: counterfeiting, ineffective product recall, medication errors and lack of inventory visibility resulting in high inventory costs and supply chain inefficiencies. At the same time, Healthcare costs have been rising for several years and are still expected to grow faster than national income in most of the countries, and regulators are defining new supply chain requirements to protect patients.The situation will be unsustainable in the long run as these challenges affect the entire supply chain, from manufacturers through to wholesalers, distributors, group purchasing organizations and Healthcare providers.The McKinsey & Company report, voicing the view of 80 thought leaders in the Healthcare industry, highlights the need to align on a single global standard to ensure patient safety and explains the urgency of driving adoption across all supply chain stakeholders.To download the report, visit
17 GS1 Standards 1. Location Identification: Global Location Number (GLN) This unique 13-character number is an industry-wide standardized location identifier that replaces custom account and location numbers. This ensures that the right product arrives at the right place at the right time.2. Product Identification: Global Trade Identification Number (GTIN)The GTIN is the unique GS1 System Identification Number used for any product or service upon which there is a need to retrieve pre-defined information; this product or service may be priced, ordered, or invoiced at any point in the supply chain. This includes individual items as well as all of their different packaging configurations (1 product could have multiple GTIN’s).3. Product Definition: Global Data Synchronization Network (GDSN)The GDSN is an authoritative source of standardized healthcare product information. With this network, all supply chain partners will be able to access identical, up-to- date, reliable product data efficiently. The GDSN plays an integral role in the adoption of GTINs.
19 What is a GLN? A globally unique 13-digit number that identifies: Legal entities- Whole companies, health systems, divisionsFunctional entities- Specific department within a legal entity, (e.g., pharmacy, receiving department, etc.)Physical locations- Clinics, units, warehouses, loading docks, etc.
20 Why is a GLN Needed?Today, there are too many identifiers for the same healthcare location. This causes confusion, finger pointing & inefficiency.ST JOHN'S QUEENS HOSPITAL Hospital ID: SAINT JOHNS QUEENS HOSPITAL Hospital ID: JAOE SAINT JOHN'S QUEEN HOSPITAL Hospital ID: SAINT JOHN'S QUEEN’S HOSPITAL Hospital ID: CA2053 ST.

27 Global Trade Identification Number’s (GTIN’s) One of the main building blocks of the GS1 System, a Global Trade Item Number (or GTIN) is a number that uniquely identifies trade items as they move through the global supply chain to the ultimate end-user.WHAT IS A TRADE ITEM?Any product or service that may be priced, ordered, or invoiced at any point in the supply chain.Key Attributes of the GTINUniqueness: The GTIN uniquely identifies trade items at all item and package levels, thus ensuring that they are always identified correctly anywhere in the world.UNIQUENESSThe GTIN uniquely identifies trade items at all item and package levels, thus ensuring that they are alwaysidentified correctly anywhere in the world. Each trade item that is different from another is allocated a separate,unique GTIN. The rules for assigning GTINs ensure that every variation of an item is allocated a single numberthat is globally unique. A GTIN can be assigned by a GS1 Company Prefix licensee anywhere in the world andcan be used throughout the world.DATA QUALITYThe GTIN delivers trade item data using a standardized format and structure. The GTIN does not contain anymeaningful information in itself; rather it is simply a pointer to database information that can be directly used inany company and in any country.An item can be looked up in a database and its associated information retrieved at any point or location. Theuniqueness of GTINs is provided through a standardized format that includes a Check Digit. The Check Digitensures the integrity of data passing through the system.Data Quality: The GTIN delivers trade item data using a standardized format and structure.- 8, 12, 13, or 14 digits

29 Global Trade Identification Number’s (GTIN’s) Benefits of Using GTIN’s Patient Safety: The right products, in the right location, at the right time to ensure the proper patient treatment.Drives E-commerce: Using the GTIN facilitates the global flow of trade items and associated information used in electronic commerce.Enhances Compatibility: Because GTINs work within any business and across business sectors, companies can trade goods and services knowing that the identification will be compatible.Facilitates Accuracy: Use of the GTIN improves scanning at checkout, in a warehouse, or in a hospital. It is also essential for accurate stock control and order replenishment.Fosters GDSN Compliance: The GTIN identifies trade items for electronic data exchange between trading partners as a required component of a GDSN.Provides Flexibility: Use of GTINs offers companies the ability to include additional information such as date codes, weight, batch numbers, etc.
30 GTIN Checklist for Providers Identify all the software systems that comprise your inventory and materials management processes.Determine requirements you have for your systems’ integration with other systems (e.g., clinical, patient billing, financial accounting).Determine how barcode scanning works / will work in your business process.Create timelines to move towards GS1 Standards adoption.Create a GS1 standards adoption team.Consult with GS1, your GPO or a data pool.Engage supplier community and ask about readiness.
32 What is the GDSN?The GDSN connects trading partners to the GS1 Global Registry via a network of interoperable GDSN-certified data pools. Within this Network, trade items are identified using GTIN’s and GLN’s.The GDSN:Improves efficiency and accuracy- Trading partners speak in a common language- Ability to react quickly to consumer or patient needsProvides Complete, Consistent, Accurate, Time-stamped and Industry Standard DataBuilds consumer / patient trust- Access to up-to-date product information
33 GDSNThere are five simple steps that allow trading partners to synchronize item, location and price data with each other:Load Data: The seller registers product and company information in its data pool.Register Data: A small subset of this data is sent to the GS1 Global Registry.Request Subscription: The buyer, through its own data pool, subscribes to receive a seller’s information.Publish Data: The seller’s data pool publishes the requested information to the buyer’s data pool.Confirm & Inform: The buyer sends a confirmation to the seller via each company’s data pool, which informs the supplier of the action taken by the retailer using the information.
35 FDA’s Unique Device Identification (UDI) System –The Final Regulation Jay CrowleySenior Advisor for Patient SafetyFood and Drug Administration
36 FDA Amendments Act of 2007September 27, 2007, the FDAAA signed into law:The Secretary shall promulgate regulations establishing a unique device identification system for medical devices requiring the label of devices to bear a unique identifier, unless the Secretary requires an alternative placement or provides an exception for a particular device or type of device. The unique identifier shall adequately identify the device through distribution and use, and may include information on the lot or serial number.
37 The Rule is Divided Into Two Parts 1. Labeling Requirements2. The Global Unique Identification Database (GUDID)The rule is divided into two parts: a section outlining UDI labeling requirements and a section outlining the requirements relating to issuing agencies and the submission of data to the newly established Global Unique Device Identification Database (GUDID). The labeling requirements stipulate the required information for a UDI for the three classes of devices. In the proposed rule, the FDA stipulates which kinds of organizations may be accredited as UDI issuing agencies and what would be required of their respective UDI systems. Lastly, the proposed rule discusses the necessary information to be published to the GUDID, an FDA-operated medical device database, for each particular device.
38 UDI Update – Labeling Requirements 1. General RequirementsPackage LabelsPlain-text (human readable)and Automatic Identificationand Data Capture (machinereadable)2. The Device IdentifierVersion or Model Number3. The Production Identifier‘Lot or batch’ NumberSerial NumberExpiration DateManufacture DateThe FDA defines a UDI as consisting of a device identifier and a production identifier, both of which contain different sets of information. The proposed rule identifies the particular placement of UDI labels for different kinds of devices. In general, a device’s packaging must contain a UDI label, as well as the device itself. The UDI must be available in plain-text and Automatic Identification and Data Capture (AIDC) formats (such as barcodes or radio-frequency identification). As for the UDI itself, the device identifier portion specifies the version or model of the device, as well as the labeler of that device. The production identifier specifies more information particular to a certain device including the lot or batch number, the serial number, the expiration date, and the date of manufacture. There are exemptions to the labeling requirements however. For example, Class I medical devices are not required to present a production identifier in their UDI. Devices that are sold at retail establishments such as drug stores are also exempt from the labeling requirements, as they contain a Universal Product Code (UPC), which may substitute for a UDI. Some devices will require direct marking on the device itself. Implantable devices and sterile devices intended for multiple uses must have the UDI displayed directly on the body of the device.Example of what a universal device identifier (UDI) would look like on a medical device label.
39 Standardized Date Format Final rule – if label includes a date (e.g., expiration):All numeric: YYYY-MM-DD ( )Day must always be includedSame Compliance Date as other UDI requirementsApplies to all labels (even if exempt from UDI)If not subject to UDI – applies at year 5A combination product with NDC number is exempt.39
40 Public UDI Access via the Global Unique Device Identification Database (GUDID) The Global Unique Device Identification Database (GUDID), will be a publicly available database operated by the FDA with the following information:The Device IdentifierStatement of Direct MarkingProprietary, Trade, or Brand NameVersion or Model NumbersStatement of Device Sterility (if applicable)Latex Notification (if applicable)Size Classification (if applicable)Any Production IdentifiersPremarket Submission NumberFDA Listing NumberGlobal Medical Device Nomenclature (GMDN) CodeNumber of Devices Within a Device PackageThe GUDID will be an FDA-operated medical device database. The GUDID will be open to the public. It is intended to be a means to track devices more easily. The GUDID, which may be connected to patient EHRs, will also help in making device recalls more efficient. Such a database would allow the FDA or health providers to track a device from its manufacturer, to its retail outlet or provider outlet, to a specific patient. For implantable devices, where the device labeling is not in plain sight, the GUDID will be particularly beneficial with regard to patient safety and awareness.Data and information for all UDI systems (if operated by multiple issuing agencies) used by device makers are required to be submitted to GUDID. The FDA proposes to require electronic submission of this data, but will provide further guidance on two different means of electronic submission: data submitted as part of a structured product label (SPL) that meets FDA specifications and data submitted through a secure Internet site.
41 UDI Compliance DatesImplementation (compliance) timeframes:Year 1: Class III and devices licensed under PHS ActYear 2: Class II/I implants and life-supporting/sustainingYear 3: Rest of class IIYear 5: Class IEffects a wide variety of medical products and “devices”Traditional hospital based devices (beds, ventilator, monitors, infusion pumps)ImplantsPatient/home use devices (glucometers)Disposables, accessories (glucose test strips, catheters)In vitro diagnostic devices (IVDs) – both clinical lab and Point of Care (POC).Health Information Technology (HIT)Convenience kits, Combination productsThose used in alternative sites – e.g., homecare, dental
42 UDI’s and GTIN’s Per the FDA: Bottom Line… “The International not-for-profit association known as ‘‘GS1’’ operates a system that uses a Global Trade Identification Number (GTIN) to identify a device...Because these existing systems include tightly-integrated functions that go far beyond simply identifying devices—functions such as inventory management and enabling commercial transactions that are not part of FDA’s public health responsibilities and are outside our statutory authority—FDA believes it would be inefficient and counterproductive to try to replace the existing systems with a single, FDA designed system of device identifiers. ”Bottom Line…The industry is still requesting suppliers to publish to the GDSN.GTIN’s are the easiest path to UDI compliance.FSEnet+ and other cerified data pools are in the process of implementing a UDI solution so suppliers can support GDSN and UDI at the same time.
43 Issuing Agency Accreditation Final rule:A [any] private organization may apply for accreditation as an issuing agency.andWill protect against conflicts of interest between the issuing agency and labelers… that may impede the applicant’s ability to independently operate a fair and neutral identifier system.434343
44 UDI Benefits: Patients/Consumers UDI provides global visibility and supports:Medical device recallsAdverse event reportingTracking and tracingSupply chain securityAnti-counterfeiting/diversionDisaster/terror preparationShortages/substitutionsReduction of medical errors (e.g., bedside scanning)An easily accessible source of device information for patients and clinicians
45 UDI Benefits: Industry Facilitate marketing clearance for new indicationsHelp purchasers to identify, order, and receive the correct deviceFacilitate visibility of their products throughout the supply chain and improve logisticsAllow stakeholders to use the manufacturer’s identifierImprove the efficiency/effectiveness of voluntary recallHelp to identify counterfeit or diverted devicesFacilitate importation activitiesAllow manufacturers to use a single UDI to meet global regulatory requirements
46 UDI Benefits: FDABetter data on actual product performance when used as standard of careImproving FDA’s use and understanding of adverse event reportsHelping FDA to better understand the risk profile of particular devicesAllowing FDA to mine population-based data sets to better understand the risks and benefits of device use within certain patient populations and indicationsIn turn, this will allow FDA to better and more quickly address new concerns raised in premarket submissions
