This week we decided to officially launch this blog after months of quietly getting it ready for prime time. With the announcement went any doubts we might have had that GS1 compliant labels is a global topic of worldwide interest and a hot topic. Noted by HISTalk, picked up and run by blogs and hundreds of news portals everywhere, our news was of interest to people locally and from some far away places. Here, for example, is our release as posted by Medindia. According to their own ‘About’ information, Medindia.com (or .net) is Asia’s premier health portal providing a range of services to both healthcare consumers and the medical professionals. Medindia has a net presence of seven years and was started as a social mission to provide the consumers with essential health related information in simple language. Over the years it has evolved into Asian regions most comprehensive portal in the health sector in terms of content, viewer ship, technology leadership and domain expertise.
To those of you just arriving here on the basis of having seen our announcement, welcome. Please come often, stay long, and feel free to contribute to the global GS1 discussion here.
