Summary:


To facilitate communication between supply chain systems that typically use GS1 identifiers, and health systems that use FHIR identifiers (resources), we can link within FHIR using Identifier.  GS1's GLN is typically found in the supply chain to identify "locations" between trading partners, on shipments, in routing messages in the GDSN, etc.  FHIR's Location and Organization serve similar needs in identifying locations and legal entities.  There is a simple way to designate a 1:1 relationship from a particular FHIR Location or Organization entity to a GLN.
