Simplify supply chain business processes by eliminating the use of multiple proprietary account/location numbers with a single identifier for all supply chain partners. The Global Location Number (GLN) is the globally unique GS1 Identification Number used in business processes for identifying a functional entity (such as a billing department), a physical entity (such as a warehouse or hospital wing or even a nursing station), or a legal entity (such as a health system corporation). This workshop will provide hands-on training from GS1 US experts and healthcare providers who have implemented the GLN in their hospitals and is designed to help you:

  Determine the right GLN strategy for your organization
  Learn how to define and manage your own GLNs 
  Work one-on-one with faculty experts to review your GLNs, hierarchies, and validation process 
  Develop a foundation to reduce mis-shipments, order-to-cash errors; ensure contract price accuracy; and streamline rebate processing
  Leave with the knowledge and tools to advance GLN implementation in your organization
