Saphety marks its presence at the Global GS1 Healthcare Conference

 Saphety marks its presence at the Global GS1 Healthcare Conference.

Between 18th and 20th of April, the Global GS1 Healthcare Conference will welcome more than 400 representatives from the main stakeholders in the Healthcare industry. Executives from the leading pharmaceuticals, medical devices manufacturers, government officials. GS1’s and solution providers from around the world meet in Dubai to talk about the latest challenges in the healthcare industry.

Topics such as traceability, counterfeiting, key product data alignment, customer safety and the respective technologic solutions allowing its operationalisation will be some of the issues discussed during the conference.

According to Joao Pereira, Chief Business Development Officer and a representative in this event, ‘in the last few years Saphety has invested in the development of solutions allowing every intervenient within the healthcare chain market, to access information about the quality of products, in compliance with the GS1 standards. At this moment, it is a priority for us to ensure we are in the frontline concerning data synchronization and traceability solutions. In order to do so, we are well aware of the different existing regulations and of the associated market obligations, which comprehend the need of adopting the GS1 standards.’

Impressive figures such as estimated savings in the region of 60 to 94 billion dollars, just in inventory, and a 19 to 27 billion dollars cut in products that were regarded as obsolete by adopting the GS1 standards, place this conference in the global agenda of the healthcare industry. However, the most relevant indicator are the 100 thousand lives estimated to be lost every year and that could have been saved if the GS1 standards and supporting technologies were adopted along all the healthcare chain market.
