At this direct link to GS1 Healthcare you can register to attend the 15th Global GS1 Healthcare Conference to be held October 6-8, 2009, in Hong Kong. The theme this year: “Raising the bar on patient safety and supply chain efficiency.”
At the link you’ll find a lot of good reasons to consider going but for this post I’ve decided to focus on the list of confirmed speakers for this event. They, more than anything, represent one of the most compelling reasons to be in Hong Kong in October:
Keynote speakers include:
• Sandra Lee, JP, Permanent Secretary for Health and Food Bureau, Hong Kong Special Administrative Region (HKSAR) Government
• Raymond Wong, Chief Manager, Business Support Services, Hong Kong Hospital Authority
• Joe Pleasant, Chief Information Officer, Premier Inc.
Other confirmed speakers include representatives from US FDA, Shanghai FDA, NeHTA (Australia), the Turkish Database Project, Kyoto Second Red Cross Hospital (Japan), Kanto Medical Center (Japan), CHI Robert Ballanger Hospital (France), Medinorma (Switzerland), CH2 (Australia).
