Improving Electronic Data Interchange (EDI) at Ramsay Health Care
95% fall in procure-to-pay costs

The context

Ramsay operates more than 220 hospitals and day surgery facilities across Australia, France, Indonesia, Malaysia and the UK. To address their collective need for greater supply chain efficiency across the Australian health system they have progressively deployed a full suite of GS1 standards for identifying, capturing and sharing information. Ramsay Health Care started its journey by implementing standards for product identification, exchanging product data and electronically exchanging purchase orders & invoices to support efficient, accurate transactions with its suppliers.

Through its use of GS1 healthcare standards, Ramsay increased the speed and the efficiency of its procure-to-pay processes, which has helped to underpin the efficient operation of its hospitals and ensure the right product is in the hospital for the patient when needed.
