Your product data stored in an ERP or on a spreadsheet is limited in how it serves healthcare, but when it is delivered to customers and regulatory agencies with proper attributes, it begins to build value. Accurate and useable data — your customers need it and regulations require it. GHX can help you get your product data delivered where needed — with efficiency, accuracy and long-term value.
Health ConneXionSM is the only healthcare-focused data pool certified by the Global Data Synchronisation Network (GDSN). You can leverage your existing connection to GHX to more readily participate in the GDSN without significant implementation costs. If you’re not connected to the GHX Exchange, you can still access GDSN-certified data through Health ConneXion as a standalone service.
The Global Data Synchronization Network (GDSN) is the world’s largest product data network.
Any company that needs to send or receive product information can take advantage of GDSN by subscribing to a data pool. Your data pool will enable you to set up your product content and synchronize it with all of your trading partners. You can then communicate reliable data for all markets at one time.
Benefits of GDSN:
Manufacturers can easily upload and publish product data to AllSource® in order to provide customers with easy access to current catalog items through the GHX Catalog and enable Order Intelligence to improve purchase order accuracy. The up-to-date product information found in the GHX Catalog, used by healthcare providers, contributes to more accurate orders, and sourcing and contracting information.
