Canadian Healthcare Supply Chain Standards Survey

About the Survey
The Canadian Healthcare Supply Chain Standards Survey, a national poll conducted by the Innovative Research Group Inc. (INNOVATIVE) for GS1 Canada, gauges the Canadian healthcare sector’s readiness to embrace and adopt change – change that will modernize and advance Canada’s healthcare system.

Survey Results
The results of the Canadian Healthcare Supply Chain Standards Survey illustrate that a majority of Canadian healthcare decision makers in supply chain management support moving to a pan-Canadian approach to bar coding healthcare products as well as sharing administrative data electronically, based on the GS1 System of standards. According to the survey, the sector believes that such a unified approach will improve patient safety and generate significant system-wide cost savings.

Purpose of the Survey
The survey is part of the Canadian Healthcare Supply Chain Standards Project, a national initiative spearheaded by GS1 Canada in collaboration with industry and government to facilitate the adoption of a common system of supply chain practices across the Canadian healthcare system.

Modernizing the Healthcare Supply Chain
Advancing Canada’s healthcare system into the 21st century is a balancing act between managing increasing costs and optimizing existing processes. Reducing waste – both human resource and material – is central to making the flow of products and information in healthcare more efficient and safe through global GS1 supply chain standards. Addressing this need is critical to improving patient safety, decreasing costs and enhancing productivity.
