WebinarCase Study: The Best Unit of Measure

Franciscan Missionaries of Our Lady Health System Fulfills its Vision of Digital Transformation with GS1 Standards.


“Using GS1 Standards and standardization is a win-win in automating our business and clinical processes. It’s a win for the patient in increased safety, it’s a win for the nurses and clinicians in time-savings, accuracy and tracking. It’s a win for the physicians that information is captured in a patient’s record and they can match outcomes to products and procedures. It’s a win for hospital management because data helps shape policies and protocols.”

Sandi Michel, System Director of Supply Chain Strategy, FMOLHS

OverviewLearn how the health system uses the "Best Unit of Measure"

As a non-profit healthcare system serving more than half of Louisiana’s population, The Franciscan Missionaries of Our Lady Health System (FMOLHS) faced the challenge of rising costs and growing complexity of delivering quality healthcare. To improve its operational efficiencies, control costs, and remain focused on what mattered most—the safety and care of its patients, FMOLHS took the strategic step of implementing GS1 Standards to help drive the digital transformation of its business and clinical processes.

Attend this webinar to learn how FMOLHS is now able to:

  • Better manage its inventory and deliver the “best unit of measure” product.
  • Scan product barcodes to capture detailed data about the products used in patient procedures and to populate the patient’s electronic health records (EHRs).
  • Monitor products based on expiration dates and, in the event of a recall, each location can precisely locate and pull affected products from inventory within minutes.
  • Analyze the products and procedures associated with anticipated patient outcomes using detailed information about the cost per case.
