Pharmac is a crown entity that works across the Health and Disability Sector and with communities and suppliers including the Ministry of Health, Te Whatu Ora, as well as Medicine and Device Suppliers. Pharmac’s role within the New Zealand health system is to make decisions on which medicines, medical devices, and vaccines are funded that will achieve the best health outcomes from within the available funding.
Pharmac is working towards applying the full Pharmac model to Hospital Medical Devices to drive value, consistent and equitable access for New Zealanders. To date Pharmac’s focus has been on building a comprehensive list of medical devices that are used in Te Whatu Ora hospitals through negotiating national contracts. Pharmac’s contracts mean there are nationally consistent terms and conditions for the Hospital Medical Devices Te Whatu Ora purchases. Prior to Pharmac’s involvement, hospitals contracted for medical devices directly with suppliers, either individually, or on a regional basis.
Through this procurement Pharmac seeks to identify, select, and engage a preferred supplier to implement and support a solution that will provide multiple internal and external Web Portals. The solution will use a low-code based platform. Pharmac will work with the selected supplier to design and develop a new internal secure API layer to support the Web Portals. The solution will support Pharmac to process Hospital Medical Devices in a similar manner to the process that Pharmac has applied to the pharmaceutical space.
The solution will form part of the new Hospital Medical Devices technology landscape. There are other systems and processes that Pharmac currently manages in the Hospital Medical Devices space related to the preparation and publishing of the Medical Devices Schedule to the sector (for example, Te Whatu Ora, Pharmacies, Hospitals).
