Healthcare eProcurement

eProcurement is the messaging suite used by both public and private hospitals, healthcare wholesalers and suppliers with efficiencies being realised across the industry in procure to pay, consignment stock and loan kit processes.

eProcurement refers to the electronic transfer of purchasing information by buyers and suppliers through supply chains. In the Australian healthcare supply chain, eProcurement processes utilise unique medicine, medical device and medical product identifiers (Global Trade Item Numbers or GTINs) and unique location identifiers (Global Location Numbers or GLNs) and related information held in the National Product Catalogue (NPC). The data follows GS1 international eProcurement standards to ensure global alignment.
