GS1 Healthcare US is inviting healthcare providers, suppliers, group purchasing organizations (GPOs) and healthcare software suppliers to voluntarily provide their progress achieved in meeting — or getting ready to meet — the GS1 Standards initiatives in U.S. healthcare.

Here’s their explanation which includes how your participation can benefit your organization:
The GLN Ready User List provides an easy way to find “GLN ready” supply chain partners in U.S. healthcare. The GLN Ready User List includes organizations subscribed to the GLN Registry for Healthcare® that have declared their readiness to use GLNs in business transactions, replacing other custom location numbers.
