Earlier this week Dr Peter Stevens sat down to speak with Shayne Hunter, Deputy Director-General Data & Digital, and Cushla Currie, CEO of the Medical Technology Association of NZ to discuss the new Health System Catalogue (HSC) and how it could save lives as well as money in the future.
In 2019, Cabinet approved the Financial Procurement Information Management (FPIM) Business Case, which requires DHBs to streamline procurement practices and manage escalating costs. To achieve this, all DHBs are required to adopt a single Health System Catalogue which is built using supplier-provided structured master data based on GS1 global data standards.
Utilising GS1’s global standards to create structured master data can enhance the whole ecosystem – ensuring higher accuracy and resilience across all of the healthcare sector.
Watch the webinar now to gain some insight on the new HSC and find out more about what to anticipate.
