Healthcare Conference Track 2016

Government regulation and increasing customer demands for supply chain standards are transforming healthcare—and GS1 Standards are at the forefront.

The Healthcare Track at GS1 Connect is designed by your peers to help companies address business challenges and regulatory requirements by leveraging GS1 Standards. At GS1 Connect, you’ll learn from industry and GS1 Standards experts how to harness the latest standards-based supply chain best practices, enhance business processes, improve patient safety, and prepare for U.S. FDA Unique Device Identification (UDI) and the Drug Supply Chain Security Act (DSCSA).

Join your peers, suppliers, and customers to unlock the value of standards for your organization and for our industry!
