46% of healthcare suppliers reach Platinum status

March 2019 NPC Data Quality update

Data sits at the heart of the industry’s transformation to ‘digital’ and is critical to ensure we have an accurate and efficient health system with a supply chain to match.

18 months on from the launch of the Data Quality Improvement program to the healthcare community, many organisations are showing what is possible with the right processes and focus. As more and more health services are starting use more of the data in NPC for products that are not on whole of state contracts, the benefits of these efforts are even more significant beyond procurement, to support the supply chain and point of care processes

The Data Quality Improvement program, co-sponsored by key industry stakeholders and GS1 Australia, continues to support the healthcare industry declared need for standardised data.


Well done to the Platinum status suppliers (March 2019)
