A major London NHS trust has today agreed to rollout 6PM's iFIT iIndex solution as part of their GS1 compliance. The initial phase will focus on GS1 compliance for medical devices, procurement and theatres whilst also providing all the underlying enterprise management of GS1 barcodes. This includes a master index for the issuing and maintenance of GS1 barcodes and the transformation of the trust’s current barcode schemas to GS1.
In addition, the solution provides the processing capability to support event and data capture activities (Scan4Safety) utilising GS1 EPCIS standards and the Common Hospital Vocabulary (CHV). iIndex enables trust usage of GS1 standards, delivering patient safety and key cost savings around asset utilisation, patient level costings and eCommerce including support of ASNs.
The rollout will be completed utilising the 6PM iFIT platform which is already GS1 UK certified for all seven GS1 keys.
Further details will be announced shortly.
