Australian Healthcare Data Recipients
Australian Healthcare has been utilising the National Product Catalogue (NPC) to assist in the sharing of product master data since its inception as part of the Supply Chain Reform program led by the then National eHealth Transition Authority (NeHTA). Data contained in the NPC is sourced from and maintained by the supplier/sponsor of the product with the primary purpose to reduce burden of the sourcing, recreatiing, reformatting and resharing the product information that is necessary to underpin safe and efficient healthcare supply chains.
The whole of sector data requirements are defined and agreed to by Australian healthcare sector representatives to meet the needs of the whole sector for product data. Though not all recipients use all of the data attributes all of the time, the dataset aims to cater to the complete set of requirements for all. The data requirements can be accessed on our website.
Each data recipient (normally buyers like state health services, hospital groups or distributors) then manage their own programs to engage with their suppliers, with assistance from GS1 as needed. Below is a listing of the current Australian Healthcare Data Recipients, we encourage you to contact them directly if you have questions around their specific requirements. This list will be updated as new recipients join/rejoin the NPC user community.

In cases where data is provided to centralised teams at group or state level, the data is being shared/is available to individual hospitals, area health services and local health districts, in addition to cataloguing teams and whole of organisation technology platforms. This sharing or data downstream, across organisations is one of the most important value adds of the NPC so where you are being asked for data at a local level please encourage them to connect to their centralised teams to have access to the data they seek.
