  1. The GS1 Singapore is proud to launch our 1st Healthcare Forum – Improving Patient Safety and Healthcare Efficiency across the Supply Chain. This event, aims to bring together public and private healthcare authorities and operators for an exchange of expertise and know-how to achieve a common goal of improving the efficiency of healthcare services and quality of patient safety in Singapore.
  1. According to the statistics provided by McKinsey & Company, at the global level, estimate an annual incidence of 50-100 million medication errors, resulting in 10-35 million preventable ADEs, and $18-115 billion in associated potential healthcare costs.
  1. Healthcare professionals are turning their focus on the global standards in the industry. With the continued increase in the financial burden on traditional delivery models and the demand for better patient care, professionals need solutions to improve patient safety at a lower cost.
  1. The United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the European Commission and other regulators have made patient safety a strategic priority by developing legislation for Unique Device Identification (UDI).


  1. Acquire understanding on how implementing global standards could help fight counterfeit medications, as serialization, traceability, and authentication. Global Standards could tackle key challenges to improve the supply chain efficiency and meet the needs of patient.
