GS1 Canada’s Healthcare initiative is a voluntary user community bringing together various
healthcare stakeholders, including healthcare providers, manufacturers, distributors, group purchasing
organizations, solution providers, governments and industry associations who are committed to the
adoption of GS1 global supply chain standards.
GS1 Canada’s Healthcare initiative advances projects that support the adoption of a common
system of supply chain standards in healthcare institutions to improve patient safety, quality, cost
efficiency and staff productivity. This ensures that Canada’s healthcare trading partners are
able to fully operate in an increasingly e-driven global supply chain reality.
