The center's survey, administered by industrial engineering faculty members Heather Nachtmann and Edward Pohl in conjunction with the Health Industry Group Purchasing Association and the Association for Healthcare Resource & Materials Management, also found that 90 percent of the respondents who were moving toward adoption of a data standards system are implementing GS1 standards, and of these organizations, 51 percent are planning to implement Global Location Numbers by the end of the year.
GHX worked closely with its member organizations, leading government agencies, industry associations and GS1 global and member country organizations to develop cost-effective and efficient means by which healthcare trading partners can implement global standard identifiers, including Global Location Numbers (GLNs), for organization and location identification and Global Trade Item Numbers (GTINs) for product identification.
