7 The purpose of globally unique identification
7.1 SoC identification and data processing
When GSRN is used in data processing, solutions have been developed by IHE® International as Master Patient Indexes (MPI), which secure uniqueness of the identification in a defined environment and associates defined demographics to a SoC identifier. MPI should be interconnected by using IHE® tools so that heterogenic identifications are linked together by using the associated demographics. The use of GSRN, as described in this document, does not impact data processing and the use of Il-fE® tools, since IHE’s ®MPI are conceived to address situations where SoC are identified with any identifier.
GSRN are fixed length 18 digits numeric keys according GS1® General SpecificationsLI. In a GSI® DataMatrix, the SoC GSRN shall be headed by a GS1® Al 8018.
7.2 Implementation challenges
Modern CIS require the use of a SoC identifier and an Individual Provider identification so that processes can be captured with scanning technologies. Some implementation challenges have been noticed, such as the following:
— Acceptance by Individual Provider: To prevent AIDC technologies consuming the Individual Provider’s time, it is important to associate these professionals to the implementation steps, including working ergonomic, graphic user interfaces, etc. A benefit of AIDC should be the reduction of administrative work (manual key entries in the nursing files, reordering of consumed products, etc.). Furthermore, it is important that any implementation requires scanning prior care processes, so that alerts are issued to prevent errors (scanning after care process would be too late to avoid error). Some processes require even two data captures: one prior to the care process (checking adequacy) and one after the care process (confirming end of process). An example for this double step is the administration of cytostaticslal.
— CIS data.field limitations: the length of the Individual Provider identification and the SoC identifier, when Lising GSRN, is 18 numeric digits. The optional SRIN for a SoC is a numeric field of up to 10 digits. The CIS is frequently not able to work with such data fields. It is important that healthcare providers and vendors collaborate to understand the value and the flexibility of the solution so that CIS support evolutions for the benefit of efficiencies (reducing manual key entries for documentation processes) and patient safety (combating workaroundsLl,Il, checks ahead of care processes. etc.). It is recommended to add appropriate reference in the future call for tender. As an intermediary (temporary) solution, a middleware (e.g. in the form a web service) can be developed or found on the market, to link SoC’s GSRN, SRIN, as well as, Individual Provider identification (GSRN) to the existing CIS.
7.3 Symbol placement on identification bands
Efarcoding technologies have addressed SoC identifiers on identification bands for years. Therefore, the following experiences should be leveraged:
— Linear/2-dimensional barcodes: linear barcodes are frequently too long to be easily read on identification bands (i.e. because of the curve of the band around the limb). Therefore, DataMatrix is recommended for carrying GSRN and when possible SR IN.
— Two data carriers on the identification band may be necessary for a transition period, since some software may not be able to handle long identification keys. It is a common situation which adds to the potential risk that the two identifiers (the long and the short) do not point to the same SoC. Therefore, such a situation should only be considered for limited periods of time.
— Ease of finding the data carrier: industry experience demonstrates that (because of the limb’s curve) the identification band is not always in the same position, thus the data carrier not always visible. The same DataMatrix should be printed optimally 4 times along the identification band. Scanner devices shall be programmed not to read the same DataMatrix more than once. The presence of

SRIN as an attribute to GSRN provides the benefit that the scanner analyses if the DataMatrix is the same or not. Results of reading more than once the GSRN and SRIN shall be rejected by the scanner.
— Ease of reading the data carrier: industry experience demonstrates that the DataMatrix should always be printed in the middle of the identification band or label (not on its side). This avoids truncations and overlaps, which burden Individual Providers and thus could influence their process conformance.
— In neonatality, it is usual to affix more than one identification band on young babies (e.g. one on the arm, one on the leg). The use of GSRN and SRIN is compatible with this situation, and the CIS should be able to validate that two SRIN are used on identification bands at the same time, for such particular situations.
7.4 Individual Provider identification
Individual Providei’s do not carry the same type of identification bands as SoC. Individual Provider identification is frequently stored on cards such as identity cards, which allow computer login, room access, etc. Individual Provider identification may be carried in RFID chips, which are defined by software vendors and the solutions implemented by the healthcare provider.
Individual Provider identification is used, not only in the care processes as described in this document but can also he used for rule management (allowing access to information relating to Individual Provider qualifications, functions, etc.), for patient record access and other functionalities at the healthcare provider’s discretion.
Individual Provider identification should be defined by the healthcare provider for its staff and the Individual Providers licensed to work in its premises. The use of GSRN should allow larger organizations using the same Individual Provider identification with structured decentralized identification management, by avoiding overlaps and identification errors.
GSRN are fixed length 18 digits numeric keys according to GSI® General Specifications. In a data carrier such as GS1® DataMatrix, the Individual Provider GSRN shall be headed by a GS1® Application Identifier 8017.ISO 18530 pdf download.
