GHX Nexus, a UK-developed content management system for hospital supplies organisation Global Health Exchange, is to be used by 70 PEG Plus member hospitals in Germany.
The system provides catalogue and price management in the healthcare sector. By using Nexus, all participants in the supply chain can see changes to product, price and contract data at any time.
GHX Nexus will be used as product information system by the PEG Plus hospitals as well as by the PEG central buying centre and suppliers. Member hospitals can access more than 120 data records – for example contracts and price lists – and improve information flows during the ordering process.
PEG is a not-for-profit company with over 700 members, and more than 1,700 healthcare institutions.
GHX Nexus simplifies the electronic alignment of price and product information, as contract data from hospitals and suppliers is made centrally accessible for the buying centres.
GHX Nexus adheres to all the established international supply chain standards in the healthcare sector. For example, the system shows the extent to which a specific product is classified according to GS1 GTIN or the German eCl@ss standard.
”With the implementation of GHX Nexus our members can make the administration of their catalogue data much more efficient," said Kai Becker, project manager eCommerce at PEG.
"Via a single software solution they can quickly exchange information with our central buying department or – indirectly – with the suppliers, and in this way improve processes.”
PEG as the biggest and oldest German purchasing organisation is the first to implement GHX Nexus in Germany together with GHX Europe.
“With this collaboration we will be able to realise the advantages of GHX Nexus as an innovative solution for data management in the hospital sector on the German market," said David Kerr, vice president of GHX Europe.
