Sisters of Mercy Adopts GSI Standards for Supply Chain

Resource Optimization & Innovation (ROi), the St. Louis, Mo.-based Sisters of Mercy Health System’s supply chain operating division, is adding specific terms to contract language requiring the use of GS1 standards in transactions and in production processing.

According to the hospital, amended contract language is being sent to all ROi and Mercy contracted suppliers requiring the use of GS1 standards. These standards include: Global Trade Identification Number (GTIN); Global Location Number (GLN); and Global Data Synchronization Network (GDSN).

GS1 standards provide a framework that ensures effective exchanges between companies and act as basic guidelines that facilitate interoperability and provide structure to many industries.

Global Healthcare Exchange (GHX, Louisville, Colo.), an electronic commerce exchange in the healthcare industry, is assisting ROi and Mercy in enabling the use of GS1 standards, as Mercy transacts many of its purchases with suppliers through the GHX exchange, says the hospital.
