NPC Data Quality Update

April 2021 update

Even in these challenging times, the need for quality, standardised data continues to support ongoing ‘digitisation’ of healthcare and suppliers are ensuring that they are making quality data available ready for when business returns to normal or for the urgent needs of today.  

Though the initial driver for the NPC a decade ago may have been compliance, a large proportion of the supplier community are reaping internal value from their data quality improvement focus. The recipient/buying community is also much more confident in being able to trust and use the data in a broader sense as a result of the improvements.

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


On behalf of industry, congratulations to the Platinum and Gold status suppliers (April 2021)
