Anyone involved in the supply or delivery of COVID-19 related products won’t want to miss the 3rd GS1 Executive Dialogue to get essential and practical information about the implementation of GS1 standards in the global COVID-19 supply chain. 

Senior executives from UNICEF, ACT Health Australia and Deloitte (moderator) will discuss ongoing works about developing a verification system in digital healthcare to reduce the risk from falsified and diverted COVID-19 vaccines and to improve identification at point of care.

This global online event is taking place from 9-10pm (AEST) on Wednesday 26 May.

Speakers include:

Peter O’Halloran, Chief Information Officer, ACT Health, Australia 

“We are using GS1 standards in our process to ensure that we deliver the best possible healthcare outcomes for our patients. Using our technology with GS1 barcodes, we managed to reduce COVID swaps turnaround time from 48 hours to only 4 or 6 hours.”

Grant Courtney, Traceability Lead, Supply Chain Strengthening Centre, Supply Division, UNICEF

“The pandemic represents an opportunity to accelerate the use of GS1 standards to fight falsified medicines. We’re excited to join the 3rd GS1 Executive Dialogue to share the work UNICEF and partners are undertaking to help reduce the risk of falsified COVID-19 vaccines.”
