Logistics occupies a special place in the healthcare industry, not only because it generates the highest costs but also because it helps patients be served on time, which in some cases can be crucial.
The patronage service and the ambulance must reach each patient on time, provide help and therapy, and they must do all this at minimal cost.
Also, the key thing is to supply all services and all departments of a hospital with medicines and necessary materials.
Every patient must receive their medicine “on time” without delay, and the procurement, storage and supply of medicines and medical supplies can often be a complex task and incur additional costs due to “urgent purchases” of certain items necessary for surgery or therapy.
OOS (out of stock) must not occur in the hospital if the item that is necessary for the patient or for the operation is not currently available.
