EDICOM participates in GS1 UK Healthcare Conference 2017 in London


NHS e-Procurement strategy

GS1 UK Healthcare Conference will take place in London on 21 and 22 November at the Radisson Blu Edwardian, London Heathrow. This year’s edition will highlight the latest on the progress of GS1 standards in the NHS in England, including updates from the six Scan4Safety Trusts and the Department of Health. You will also be able to attend plenary sessions from national leaders with breakout sessions in the afternoon from senior hospital clinical, finance and procurement leaders who will share their perspectives, expertise and experience, focusing on the real-life benefits of GS1 standards.

Meet EDICOM’s integral solution

The e-Procurement Strategy in the UK continues to be progressively implemented within the NHS. GS1 and PEPPOL standards are already widely recognized by Trusts and healthcare suppliers. EDICOM presents a comprehensive solution which is both GDSN and PEPPOL compliant. All from one single provider.

On this year’s conference, our EDICOM experts will explain about the adoption of GS1 and PEPPOL standards in compliance with the NHS e-Procurement strategy. Since mid-2015, the sector has been working on implementation of this technological project, based on two fundamental cornerstones: data synchronization via the GDSN network electronic catalogs and the use of the PEPPOL infrastructure.

EDICOM can help health companies throughout the whole process, as we own a certified GS1 Data Pool to connect with the GDSN network and we are a certified PEPPOL Access Point and we have been awarded a place on the Crown Commercial Service (CCS) RM3784 PEPPOL Access Point Framework Agreement.

At EDICOM we also offer a full integrated EDI and e-Invoicing platform, which will make electronic data interchange automatic and immediate with full document traceability.

The rollout of e-communications through PEPPOL and GDSN is an open door to international trade and optimization of other business activities. Digitizing communications flows will create competitive advantages for businesses which will be able to expand their commercial focus worldwide.

Next steps

The medical devices companies are already up and running with their adoption calendar. The next group of companies to implement the electronic system is the medicines group, such as pharmaceuticals and laboratories.

If you would like more detailed information on the aims of this initiative and the deadlines for rollout in companies, we recommend you download this free White Paper on the NHS e-Procurement Strategy (available in English and Spanish).
