Our Work

Supply Chain

Australia’s health sector is embracing supply chain reform and making significant progress towards an interoperable system that delivers substantial quality and efficiency benefits for providers and consumers.

Supply Chain reform is needed because:
  • There is a lack of standardised product identification
  • There is a lack of standardised location identification
  • Multiple product data catalogues are maintained per hospital, per hospital network and per state

Poor supply chain costs the health system money:

  • Wrong product ordered/delivered
  • Wrong quantity/poor forecasting and inventory management
  • Redundant purchasing tasks, inefficient work practices and less accuracy without automation.

NEHTA is leading the way through the National Product Catalogue (NPC), a central repository of accurate, standardised information about products from large medical devices, to consumables and medicines, along with an eProcurement solution designed to streamline the electronic purchasing process.

  • 336,418 Products listed on the National Product Catalogue
  • 464 Healthcare suppliers listed on the National Product Catalogue
The four pillars leading Supply Chain reform are:
  • NPC
  • eProcurement
  • Locatenet
  • Recallnet
