Catalogue Management

NSW Health Catalogue

The NSW Health State-wide Catalogue is comprised of the Health Item Master File (HIMF).

The HIMF is a list of generically described products that are procured by HealthShare NSW for Local Health Districts and other Public Health Organisations.

Some exceptions to the generic product description concept exist within this catalogue to accommodate requirements of customers and the procurement process, such as equipment specific items, pharmaceuticals and other specialised commodities.

Master Catalogue Information System – Catalogue Web Search

To assist Local Health Districts and other health agencies in the requisition and procurement processes, a web-based tool called the Master Catalogue Information System – Catalogue Web Search (MCIS – CWS) is available either through the HealthShare NSW intranet or through the Local Health District intranets.

This web search tool provides approved users access to:

  • Product and Pricing Information as published by Suppliers onto the National Product Catalogue
  • State Based Build of the Oracle Financial Management Information System from 2007 to present (updated nightly)
  • Health-specific contract pricing schedules provided by HealthShare NSW's Business Procurement Services team
  • Selected non-Health Specific contract pricing schedules directly extracted from NSWBuy
  • The Health Item Master File (includes Hospital Pharmacy Product List and Surginet Products).
