EDICOM leads European project to promote e-invoicing in public health


Public agencies throughout the European Union must be ready to work with e- invoicing by November 2018, as set forth in Directive 2014/55/EU. Of all the production sectors involved, healthcare is without a doubt the most complex due to the great diversity of products and supplies that health centres and trusts have to deal with, compounded by the priority of ensuring the smooth running of a fundamental service for administrations.

To this end, EDICOM did not hesitate to join and lead the GOVEIN project. An R+D+i initiative, driven by the European commission, to foster implementation of the European e-invoicing schema between hospitals and laboratories.

Participants in the project, framed within Europe’s CEF TELECOM e-Invoicing initiative, will receive funding to cover up to 75% of the e-billing rollout costs. The aim is to get laboratories, hospital trusts and government healthcare institutions up and running with this technology, in compliance with the requirements set forth in the European standard (Directive 2014/55/EU), due to come into force in 2018.


How does the project work?

The initiative headed by EDICOM is open to healthcare suppliers and public agencies belonging to any member state. For now, and until next November, the doors are open for interested parties to submit their application to take part.

The next phase will take place between May 2017 and April 2018, when the technical side of the e-invoicing pilot project will be developed. EDICOM will set up a multi-syntax solution for each of the participants, with which they can process invoices in several standards. Of course, this platform will also comply with the specifications of EU legislation calling for guarantees of semantic interoperability throughout the European Union.



The nomination and choice of EDICOM to lead this European initiative is motivated by our extensive knowledge and experience in the implementation of e-invoicing systems both in B2B and B2G. Our more than 14,000 customers worldwide include major laboratories and companies in the international healthcare industry, such as Abbott, Bayer, Lilly, Pfizer or Merck, among many others.

In addition, we have actively participated in important public administration e-billing initiatives launched in different countries in Europe such as Spain, Portugal, and Italy. We are also fully engaged in regional initiatives to implement e-Procurement platforms seeking to optimize the flow of transactions between hospitals and their supplier networks. Initiatives such as those rolled out by the NHS in the United Kingdom, or the Emilia-Romagna region in Italy.
