Innovit provides experience and expertise to delegates at the North Tees and Hartlepool information and education event NHS Trusts in England are stepping up the engagement with their suppliers under the UK Department of Health’s eProcurement Strategy, and GS1 Certified MDM solution provider Innovit is right beside them. NHS North Tees and Hartlepool NHS Foundation Trust will host a major event on 19 and 20 July to guide suppliers in the use of GS1 Standards for product and location identification, and for data synchronisation throughout the Healthcare supply chain. Innovit, a global leader in Healthcare system master data management and a GS1 UK-certified solutions provider, will partner with NHS North Tees in answering suppliers’ information requests and providing education for their staff. The eProcurement Strategy mandates the use of GS1 Standards by NHS Trusts and suppliers, along with the use of the PEPPOL standard for purchase orders, despatch advice notes and invoices. (PEPPOL, or Pan-European Public Procurement Online, standardises messaging between businesses and government agencies within the European Union). The NHS North Tees and Hartlepool Supplier Engagement Event, in the Tees Valley’s Wynyard Hall, will bring together subject-matter experts and solution providers in order to give NHS suppliers the best available information on how to plan and implement projects under the eProcurement Strategy. Innovit will be on hand with specially-designed tools including a free supplier webinar which sets out “10 steps to getting started with NHS”, and an NHS Readiness Programme to support NHS Trusts and suppliers in their various projects to implement GS1 and PEPPOL standards. This strategy is aimed at efficiency gain in how the NHS Trusts operate, and at improvements in patient care and patient safety. Innovit Chief Executive Bang Chau said: “The NHS reforms will have a major effect on how the National Health System and its suppliers do business. Innovit is making its substantial experience available to Trusts and their suppliers so they can plan and implement specific projects with maximum efficiency and effectiveness.” Innovit has already supported more than 170 Healthcare-related product master data projects in the UK, Europe, the United States, Australia, and New Zealand. Innovit has particular expertise in MDM and PIM solutions for the management and sharing of GS1’s Global Data Synchronisation Network (GDSN) standards via data pools. Innovit’s certification for GDSN data pools covers 1WorldSync, TrueSource, and National Product Catalogue (NPC). Mr Chau said: “We look forward to sharing our insights and experiences with companies attending the NHS North Tees and Hartlepool Supplier event.” Any company who deals with England’s NHS Trusts can register for Innovit’s webinar and/or the NHS Readiness Programme at http://www.innovit.com/training-downloads/innovit-training/nhs-readiness-program www.innovit.com
