Data Management, Data Synchronization, Data Synchronisation
GS1 Recallnet Healthcare went live on 1 April 2014. This has been developed by GS1, in association with more than 50 stakeholders including the National e-Health Transition Authority (NEHTA), the Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA), the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission (ACCC), state and territory health departments, medical device and pharmaceutical suppliers and industry associations.
GS1 Recallnet Healthcare is an electronic product recall notification system for therapeutic goods. According to NEHTA, in 2013 there were 670 recalls issued for therapeutic products in the Australian marketplace. These not only impact healthcare suppliers but have a huge potential risk for patient safety.
Many of Bizcaps healthcare customers are using Recallnet.
Health Purchasing Victoria (HPV) supports Recallnet as a key component of supply chain reform. Removing reliance on manual processes and streamlining the system with an electronic notification system will reduce the risk for error which could impact on patient safety. HPV will work with GS1 and NEHTA to implement the system across Victoria’s health sector. While the implementation of Recallnet is not mandatory, HPV sees it as being an essential part of an effective health supply chain.
At Clifford Hallam Healthcare (CH2) product recalls take considerable resources to ensure timely and effective notification to customers and isolation of affected products. CH2 is developing the processes necessary to incorporate Recallnet into the CH2 Quality system and sees standardising product recalls as a positive step forward for the healthcare sector.
Bizcaps has extensive experience in the healthcare sector. Bizcaps is an alliance partner of GS1 in both Australia and New Zealand and Bizcaps DataSync and Bizcaps Enterprise product data management software simplifies the publishing of product information to GDSN-compliant datapools such as the NPC (National Product Catalogue) in Australia and the DHBNC in NZ.
