The Role of G-Tins in virtualization in Health Care

Christian works for over 20 years in the Healthcare industry. Early 1990, he played an instrumental role in the establishment of narcotic control according UN conventions and Swiss legislation, by using the GS1 system in Switzerland. In parallel, as from 1995 elements of the GS1 System were deployed for improving accuracy and efficiency of information about the healthcare supply chain, by reducing administrative costs. Later the TARMED national claim programme leveraged the same GS1 identification keys, which are now used in the eHealth solution in that country.

Healthcare is one of the largest industries with 5-18% of GDPs spent on health and Care globally. The healthcare budgets of the vast majority of nations continue to outgrow their GDPs. Social, demographic, economic and technological factors are the drivers for ever faster changing healthcare models. While the demographic shifts in the populations display significant socio-economic challenges they trigger more and more opportunities for innovators in the areas of sensor technology the Internet of Things, Robotics, e-health, m-Health, Cloud Computing and emerging technologies such as 5G, Big Data, SDNs, NFV, Precision and Personalized Medicine. However, the integration of innovative technology into society is associated with a lot of complexities. Social technological alignment and societal acceptance of technology requires sound solutions with regards to ethical, legal, social and security challenges.
