Following customer engagement and market research, TSFT outlined a solution that was GS1-compliant and could meet the complex needs of various hospital functions.
They then worked with suppliers and providers to introduce GS1 barcodes at the item level, across a range of inventory. This allowed for the management of data at every stage of a product being received, stored, and used.
The head and neck theatre department piloted the solution first. All stock in this area is now ordered, stored and managed using GS1 standards.
