We will aim to gradually implement your upgrade to Procure in multiple stages over a number of months. This allows us to:

  • Embed, test and implement required process changes to support a smooth transition
  • Compare existing and new process and functionalities to align with the needs of your organisation.

Once we have completed the initial assessment and identified the GHX Procure modules you will need, our team will conduct a more comprehensive evaluation of your current processes and utilisation of GHX PowerGate. This will provide you with the details you need for the transition, including a benefit and gap analysis, estimated timescales and an outline plan.

We will initially upgrade one area before this can be rolled out to other parts of your organisation. This will allow us to identify organisational nuances that may recur with further implementations (such as alignment with finance processes, data gathering approaches etc.)

Depending on the needs of your organisation, the upgrade to GHX Procure may impact the following areas:

  • Requisitioning Points
  • Inventory Stores
  • Top-Up Locations
  • Receipt and Distribution
  • Financial/AP Accounting
  • ERP PO Traffic Management

GHX Procure Inventory Manager gives you immediate access to track, trace and record GTIN-labelled products from catalogue, to receipt, issuing to a patient, and replenishments. This includes sending consignment usage details, such as serial number, lot number and expiry dates, to suppliers.

Experts from our upgrade team will manage the process for you, however we will need to ask you to provide information or complete certain tasks at key points during the upgrade. Your Key Account Manager will discuss this with you and will be available throughout the process to answer any questions you may have.

No, PowerGate Pharmacy is not part of this upgrade and will continue to run and be supported as normal.
