Slowly but surely we are shifting to a new way of financing in health care. A profound knowledge of the processes and an exact cost and risk assessment are becoming increasingly important. Another trend is that patients no longer go to the closest hospital for treatment, but they are screening the health market to estimate where they get the best value. Patient safety, service quality and traceability are becoming increasingly important. Top priority in the health care today is avoiding medical errors and other consequences of suboptimal processes. And we aren’t just talking about hospitals: the monitoring of the patient in other centers and home care are equally relevant.
In short, challenges that can be answered from a supply chain management point of view. In this seminar PICS Belgium and VIB zoom into these challenges and present a number of specific cases (from different points of view: operating room, pharmacy and laboratory) offering an answer to these challenges.
