In April 2014 the NHS published its e-procurement strategy. The report was driven by the need to optimize and align existing e-procurement practices across the entire NHS.
The strategy states that adopting e-procurement will produce annual savings of between £3 million and £5 million for a typical 600-bed hospital and aims to help the NHS overall save £1.5 billion annually.
The United Kingdom Department of Health requires NHS Trusts and their network of suppliers to use GS1 and PEPPOL open standards and communication networks.
The rollout schedule for the new system consists of different phases that extend up to 2018. The first mandatory implementation steps are carried out during 2016.
The e-procurement system being developed by the NHS uses the international standards developed by organizations such as GS1 and PEPPOL as the basis for data transfer.
The British National Health Service bases the development of its e-procurement platform on EDI (Electronic Data Interchange) technology. Through this technology, NHS Trusts and their suppliers can exchange business, logistics and tax information which is in their information systems. The key to optimizing the exchange of transactions is the adoption of common and open standards by the entire supply chain.

This is why we can provide the British National Health Service hospital network and all its suppliers with an e- Procurement Solution 100% certified and fully compliant with GS1 and PEPPOL standards.
