Global health supply chains face an acute pain point maintaining product master data because many organizations use inconsistent product identifiers and employ highly manual processes.
No master identifier for products distributed globally
Tracking systems require human input and are prone to error
Does not allow supply chains to work together
Difficult to get supplies where they are needed most
The Project Catalog Management Tool aims to connect product catalogs in order to show a clear journey from manufacturer to patient. It establishes master data that includes GS1 identifiers, global categories, and mappings to local identifiers. This enables end-to-end visibility, allows shipments to flow between systems, and helps supply chains perform.
Better data for decision-making
Streamlined supply chain operations
More patients reached when and where needed
PCMT is open source software based on Akeneo that allows organizations to publish and manage product catalogs. It supports GS1 standards for identifying products, capturing data from barcodes, and sharing data. PCMT also acts as a OpenHIE Product Registry, sharing master product data to enable interoperability across eHealth ecosystems.
