Using the Uniform Dataset

With the uniform dataset, product information of all medical items is exchanged smoothly and correctly.

In consultation with suppliers, healthcare institutions, industry associations, professional associations and GS1, there is now one uniform dataset. This data is shared through the GS1 Global Data Synchronisation Network (GDSN), as of February 25 with the new fields, as well as in the ECHO data model.

Through GS1 Data Source (GDSN), healthcare institutions receive standardised product data of medical items, this can be automatically integrated with internal systems.

By February 25, 2023 the full uniform dataset in GDSN. Suppliers can fill the fields with data. The temporary Excel file no longer needs to be used by the supplier, he will then share his product information only through GDSN. See the data model which data is in GDSN.
