Electronic Orders & NSO Platform in Italy
Beginning on 1 February 2020, public sector health care companies are obligated to connect to the NSO electronically to send purchase orders to their suppliers. As a resut, the suppliers of the National Health Service (SSN) must receive purchase orders electronically.
The NSO platform is the channel through which all public sector purchase orders are sent and then sorted for their respective recipients. This is how the Ministry of Economy and Finance (MEF) matches the purchase orders with their invoices.
