ECHO

The international healthcare sector is embracing many regulations and developments at the moment, and the challenge of complying with these various requirements has become evident. Healthcare manufacturers and care providers are therefore looking to GS1 for the answer to this increasingly growing complex problem.

ECHO (Extending the Collaboration of Healthcare Organisations) is a collaboration of GS1 Member Organisations together with healthcare stakeholders to align efforts and create a clear strategy in the exchange of product data via GDSN (Global Data Synchronisation Network).

What is ECHO?

Healthcare providers are under constant pressure to provide good quality care with less costs, and it is important to reduce errors and optimize processes. Manufacturers on the other hand are faced with an avalanche of requirements from various countries with different regulations, languages and business needs.

The ECHO (Extending the Collaboration of Healthcare Organisations) initiative focuses on harmonising market strategies and data requirements across borders in order to maximise the benefits of using the Global Data Synchronisation Network (GDSN), the global standard for data exchange.
