Scanning medical devices in the Operating Room (GS1 UDI) on 17 September 2020

Diederik Rood, Senior advisor ERP Solutions & Project leader Dutch Implant Registry at the Dijklander Hospital, the Netherlands, presents in this webinar the implementing of barcode scanning in the Operating Room.

Diederik will specifically explain:

  1. start small and try out, it doesn’t have to be perfect from the start;
  2. establish a broad project team covering all departments and staff affected;
  3. connect with suppliers to receive product data via GS1 Datasource Healthcare (GDSN): monitor your data and persevere;
  4. how to comply with the Dutch Implant Registry and improve patient safety: Scan the GS1 UDI barcode;
  5. benefits for logistics and finance of scanning barcodes.

“Involve all stakeholders from purchasing the products up to implanting in the Operating Theatre, and explain the benefits, because there are benefits for all of them to use the GS1 standards”.
