GS1 Australia and NEHTA announce new free webinar ‘Realise the Efficiency of the NPC’

Supplier News

GS1 Australia  and the National E-Health Transition Authority (NEHTA) are organising a new free webinar for suppliers in the healthcare industry who seek a better understanding of how to use the National Product Catalogue (NPC).    

To be held daily from Monday 16 to Friday 20 April 2012, the free webinar ‘Realise the Efficiency of the NPC’ will demonstrate to participants how to utilise the NPC to bring new business efficiencies to their organisation as well as provide essential information on how to get involved.  

Experts from GS1 Australia and NEHTA will outline the business drivers for NPC population and current requirements for all healthcare organisations to get involved. Attendees will also be able to learn about the documented business benefits for participating organisations.  

NPC is a single repository for product data about medicines, medical equipment and consumables, and is hosted by GS1 Australia on GS1net, the Global Data Synchronisation Network (GDSN) pool.  

Increasingly recognised and utilised as the primary source of reliable product data for all healthcare related purchasing in Australia with the number of users growing by more than 30% in the past nine months, NPC is endorsed by all state, territory and federal health departments.  

The NPC is designed not only to reduce the costs associated with incorrect data but also significantly cut the time and resources taken by suppliers to manage and communicate their product data to trading partners.  

Each live webinar runs for 30 minutes and all participants will receive a short informational video on the benefits of the NPC, a useful tool to share information with key parts of their business.  

Following the webinars, GS1 Australia and NEHTA will host a series of NPC information seminars in May 2012.  

Registration for ‘Realise the Efficiency of the NPC’ is open now.
