EDICOM data synchronization platform links up with health sector


Catálogo Electrónico para el sector salud

Information management in the healthcare supply chain is marked by heterogeneity, both of products and the stakeholders taking part. Data transmission must be extended to suppliers, distributors, manufacturers, and in many cases, the Public Administration too. A complex procedure that must be performed flawlessly, especially in this sector, to ensure patient safety and health.

We must also bear in mind that errors resulting from misinformation in this process can entail billions in expenditure each year for the healthcare industry. However, data management in the supply chain is increasingly secure, optimum and simple thanks to technological breakthroughs. With the start-up of the international network for the healthcare sector (GDSN Global Data Synchronization Network), hospitals and pharmaceutical wholesalers, etc. can share their databases without the heterogeneity of information or borders becoming a problem.


How does GDSN work?

The GDSN network functions through electronic catalogues authorized by GS1, also known as Data Pools, such as EDICOMData. This EDICOM platform enables immediate publication of information on healthcare products (medicines, equipment, supplies, utensils …etc) and makes it available transparently and safely to the supply chain stakeholders present in the network. This way, the different databases are synchronized automatically whenever a change occurs that affects them, so the information is always permanently updated.

This is one of the main differences from the usual procedure. Until recently, each system used to have its own database and every time any modification took place, they had to be updated individually. This procedure gave rise to a large number of errors, with knock-on effects both in patient safety and higher expenses for the healthcare industry.


Major suppliers join the technological leap

Alliance Healthcare, Cecofar, Cofares, Cruzfarma and many more now operate in the GDSN network through the EDICOMData e-catalogue. This has helped them improve the information flow throughout the supply chain, resulting in lower costs and higher productivity.

Implementing EDICOMData is quite simple and allows the user to work from their usual EDI platform. This means that, from the same system routinely used to handle business communications and logistics with wholesalers and hospitals, etc., it is also possible to link up with the product data files from the different suppliers.
