Our Services

Catalogue Management

Having access to accurate and current data is crucial in maintaining a robust supply chain model. Issues such as invoice queries, receipt of incorrect goods and product outages, all lead to avoidable manual intervention.

Our dedicated Catalogue Management team can provide tailored support to our NEXUS customers, removing the need for them to allocate resource to the ongoing maintenance of their continually changing catalogues. This service helps to make sure the item data used in Purchase Ordering and Inventory Management is as current and comprehensive as possible.

Data Cleansing and Enrichment

Comprehensive, accurate data is also vital to minimise errors and disruptions within your P2P process, as well as helping to avoid impact on Clinical Services through provision of incorrect goods. Meeting GS1, Scan4Safety and MMDA requirements all call for accuracy and depth in item data. However, the availability of clean data, or the daunting amount involved, can make it difficult for organisations to achieve the standard of data maturity they would like.

GHX’s expert team of Consultants specialise in the development of robust item data repositories. We can support your organisation on its journey towards enhanced reporting, reductions in disputes and increased clinical efficacy and better patient experience.

Change and Programme Management

Embracing advances in technology and process efficiencies is an integral part in maintaining the best services possible, but the organisational and cultural changes involved can present real world obstacles in achieving the desired outcomes and progression.

Our Consultants have extensive experience in supporting organisations through change, with specific expertise in Healthcare, Procurement and Finance. Industry-leading accreditation underpins our tailored and robust Programme Management structure, to support everything from compact, discrete projects to major organisational change.

Supply Chain Optimisation

The optimisation of supply chains can bring financial, clinical and operational benefits to any Healthcare organisation, in addition to building in a resilience that allows the flexibility to function well during periods of adverse conditions.

Our experts can carry out a full end-to-end analysis of the supply chain environment and provide you with a comprehensive best practice optimisation report. This is designed to help you establish a model that supports economical working practices and provides confidence and assurance to clinical areas that your supply chain is structured to support their delivery of care.

Electronic Trading Optimisation

Electronic trading is a key component of an efficient and cost effective supply chain model, helping to avoid manual intervention in the Purchase-to-Pay (P2P) process. Electronic trading efficiencies can support an increase in touchless processes, reducing costs and freeing up time for people to add value to their roles in other ways.

Our team of experts can analyse your current electronic trading approach to help optimise both process and scope. Best practice advice, partner optimisation and development of short, medium and long term goals can help support your organisation to maximise the benefits available.
