Database Synchronizes Health-Care Product Information

Cardinal Health Inc. has introduced a health-care product synchronization database it says will improve the speed and efficiency of trading partners in the health-care industry. Called SupplyCentral, the database is a central registry of medical and surgical product information. "Trading partners within the health-care industry need a way to correct, synchronize ad update incorrect and erroneous product data -- and the SupplyCentral database is the solution," says Dwight Winstead, president and COO of the Clinical Technologies and Services group of Cardinal Health. "This database will give the entire health-care supply chain access to an electronic library that also can publish, transmit and download standardized product information," says Charlie Burwell, Cardinal Health senior vice president of strategic development. Dublin, Ohio-based Cardinal Health delivers products, services and technologies for the health-care industry.
