Coloplast is a leader in supply chain automation in the healthcare industry. The company first worked with GHX to automate the “core four” supply chain documents: Purchase order (PO), purchase order acknowledgement (POA), advance ship notice (ASN) and invoice.
The Coloplast team then expanded automation into all single channel/ advanced transaction sets, making GHX the sole channel for all contracting activities for their hospital, group purchasing organization (GPO) and distribution partners.
They next plan to implement Collaboration Portal to further improve pricing alignment among their trading partners.
