GHX shortlisted for HSJ Healthcare Partnership Awards 2019

Leading cloud-based healthcare supply management solution provider shortlisted for its work with both Leeds Teaching Hospitals NHS Trust and Guy’s and St Thomas’ NHS Foundation Trust


Cambridge, UK. 23 January 2019: Global Healthcare Exchange (GHX), a leader in cloud-based healthcare supply chain management solutions, which helps empower healthcare organisations to enable better patient care and maximise industry savings, has been shortlisted twice at Health Service Journal’s (HSJ) Healthcare Partnership Awards 2019.


Each year, the HSJ Partnership Awards showcase the most trusted partnerships with the NHS through a rigorous and challenging entry and judging programme. Patient experience and outcomes are at the centre of the criteria, but judges also recognise value creation, stakeholder involvement, savings and sharing of best practice.


GHX’s two shortlisted projects are within the ‘Procurement Support or Service Project of the Year’ category:


  • The Leeds Teaching Hospitals NHS Trust: GS1 and Scan4Safety
    By partnering with GHX, Leeds was able to deploy technologies and solutions for data and catalogue management, improve supply chain automation and implement GS1 data standards in collaboration with its suppliers. Scan4Safety pushed both Leeds and GHX to build and expand upon these solid foundations. As a result, Leeds has streamlined processes and reduced waste while enhancing patient care.


  • Guy’s and St Thomas’ NHS Foundation Trust: SmartTogether* Procurement Shared Service
    A new partnership which will help enable the Trust and hosted Shared Service, SmartTogether, to realise true efficiencies and savings through the application of GHX’s market leading healthcare technology. The partnership will help deliver the proven benefits of shared catalogue management through NEXUS, GHX’s GS1-compatible, GDSN-fed, cloud-based catalogue system.


GHX has been invited to present both projects for consideration during a live judging day in February, with winners being announced at an awards event in London on the 20th March.
