EDICOM sponsors Scan4Safety event on the NHS e-Procurement Strategy in Salisbury


NHS e-Procurement Strategy

EDICOM and Dakota Healthcare sponsor the Scan4Safety event – Getting Started Workshop on 28th April in Salisbury. This workshop aims to provide health sector suppliers all the information about the NHS e-Procurement strategy, which is already underway. In fact, 2018 is the deadline set for EU member states to implement e-procurement in their public administrations.

The event starts at 9:00 on Friday 28th of April at the Salisbury NHS Foundation Trust. During the morning, EDICOM will give out a conference on Successful business cases around the NHS strategy.

In addition to the talks, there will also be time for suppliers to discuss their queries directly with companies specializing in technology solutions to meet this challenge. To this end, EDICOM, a PEPPOL-accredited Access Point and Data Pool certified by GS1 worldwide, will be at the event looking forward to meeting you.

NHS e-Procurement Strategy key points

The NHS e-Procurement Strategy stipulates the mandatory use of GS1 and PEPPOL international standards. The adoption of common standards worldwide, in this case GS1 and PEPPOL, will ensure interoperability among NHS suppliers and facilitate the exchange of data between their systems. GS1 standards are used for data synchronization, product coding and item location. PEPPOL (Pan-European Public Procurement Online) standards must be used when exchanging messages between suppliers and the NHS, i.e. for invoices, purchase orders and advance shipping notes.

One of the main challenges faced by large-scale sector suppliers concerns integrating their ERPs with the platform developed by the NHS. These companies handle vast amounts of product data every day and exchange a high volume of messages with NHS Trusts, hospitals and other health centers. Now, what they need to do is extract all these data from their internal systems, transform them into the format required and validate them prior to sending to the public sector. Automation of procedures and the removal of paper throughout the entire supply chain entails significant benefits for both the NHS and its trusts, as well as its suppliers:
