ECCnet Registry, Canada’s healthcare product registry

In 2009, the Canadian healthcare sector, through the GS1 Canada Carenet Healthcare Sector Board, initiated a strategy to integrate medical device product data into ECCnet Registry, making ECCnet Registry Canada’s healthcare product registry. With the new category of medical device product data available by the end of 2012, ECCnet Registry will be the most comprehensive, perpetually updated and continually validated registry of healthcare product data of its kind in Canada. Medical device product data will join existing categories already available in ECCnet Registry, such as grocery, pharmacy and foodservice data.

According to the Institute for Safe Medication Practices Canada (ISMP Canada) and the Canadian Patient Safety Institute (CPSI), data integrity is a key factor in driving patient safety. For this reason, leading healthcare representatives – from healthcare providers, to suppliers, distributors, GPOs, and others – have been working with GS1 Canada on the development of this single national registry for healthcare product data. Based on global GS1 standards, and built according to GS1 Canada’s proven model for driving data accuracy, ECCnet Registry will improve patient safety and drive cost savings across the Canadian healthcare system.
