Use Cases for standardised product data in Australian Healthcare

As supported by the National Product Catalogue 

As healthcare continues to become increasingly digitised, there is a need to for the entire health system to view all processes within the flow of products not in isolation, but instead as parts of the same, connected value chain. To support this continuous flow, the availability of and reliance upon interoperable, consistent and quality data is critical. Recreating product data in a multitude of formats and not leveraging consistent data standards is a non-value add for the sector. 

The use cases below have been developed with representation from the Australian Healthcare sector to illustrate the broad requirements of product item master data across organisations and processes within the sector.  

All use cases outlined are supported within the National Product Catalogue (NPC) to meet the data needs of the Australian healthcare sector.
