The new partnership will deliver the proven benefits of shared catalogue
management and give Guy’s and St Thomas’ NHS Foundation Trust the
ability to help realise efficiencies and savings through NEXUS, GHX’s
GS1-compatible, GDSN-fed, cloud-based catalogue system.
NEXUS streamlines the catalogue and product information management
process – which can be a very manually intensive process – by pulling
catalogue data into one place. Integrated into local ERP systems
(including Oracle, Aggresso and Integra), the data can then be accessed
through an easy to search, web-based user interface. To date, over 350
healthcare suppliers across Europe already have their clean catalogue
data in NEXUS. This equates to over two million clean catalogue items
readily available for reduced error ordering and invoicing. GHX
technologies are used in over 150 hospitals in the UK and Ireland.
David Lawson, Chief Procurement Officer, Guy’s and St Thomas’ NHS
Foundation Trust commented on the partnership: “GHX Nexus enables our
catalogue team to move quickly to manage our supplier catalogues across
the four NHS Trusts within the shared service in one place irrespective
