The session will provide insight into the requirements and opportunities of barcoding & traceability in Healthcare with a specific focus on getting it right, so that you can scale your company.

What is traceability?

Traceability in healthcare enables you to see the movement of prescription drugs or medical devices across the supply chain. You can trace backwards to identify the history of the transfers and locations of a product, from the point of manufacture onwards. And you can track forwards to see the intended route of the product towards the point of care.

The seminar will also give some examples and includes a case study on how Ireland’s Vaccination programme used GS1 Traceability Standards to track the Covid 19 Vaccine. As COVID-19 vaccines became available, Ireland’s Health Service Executive (HSE) needed an efficient and effective way of receiving, administering, tracking and reporting vaccinations across its more than 40 Centralised Vaccination Clinics (CVCs). It was important for the HSE’s National Immunisation Office (NIO) that no dose was wasted and that batches of vaccine could be tracked to the point of vaccination.

The seminar will include Q&A session
