Practical service for linking with GS1 Data Source Healthcare

Dijklander Hospital and the GDSN Mapping Service

By linking to GS1 Data Source Healthcare (GDSN), Dijklander Hospital gained direct access to the data of the total range of suppliers with hundreds of thousands of articles. Diederik Rood, senior advisor and project leader for the LIR at the Dijklander Hospital, explains: “While we have at most 5,000 implants in stock in the OR. All that data raised new questions. Which articles do we use and which not? Some data fields were empty, but why? Because the supplier has not released it or has not entered it? Or because the coupling has not been properly established? Or do we as Dijklander Hospital have our data incorrectly in the systems? It took us a long time to find answers to these questions ”.

Dijklander has developed a practical solution together with data specialist Type 2 Solutions. Dijklander uses the GDSN Mapping Service of Type 2 Solutions for this. The data management service receives the Dijklander article file containing the Global Trade Item Numbers (GTIN) and reference numbers of the 5000 articles that the hospital carries at a fixed time. “Then the Type 2 Solutions mapping service automatically generates a file with only the relevant data fields of these articles supplemented with the corresponding SNOMED codes. We receive an update every two weeks”, says Rood.

Because the GTIN is linked to the internal reference numbers, Dijklander Hospital can easily process the article data in the EMR and ERP.
