Hospital Logistics, the Way towards Organization of Excellency. Can the French Experience Help Moldovan Hospitals?


  • Maria Costin


In France, hospital logistics is undergoing rapid change. Under the pressure of hospital reforms and market developments, leaders are reorganizing production services and building logistic centres. Hospitals are developing the concept of Supply Chain Management, designed around flows (purchase, supply, platform and transport, care production, distribution) with the setting up of innovative tools such as: purchase and supply management software, warehousing, ERP, RFID, etc.). French hospitals have succeeded in changing their mode of organization and hospital logistic has been effectively implemented. This knowledge could be shared with other countries in search of solutions (for example, Moldova, an Eastern European country which is in search of solutions for a better performance of hospitals).
