Hospital logistics


What

has been written on hospital logistics?

Literature study

According to the Swedish medical association there will be a need of additional resources in order to
reach the
national
goals regarding quality and availability of care.
The demographical development
shows that there will be an increased level of elderly

people in Sweden in the future

which leads to
greater costs. Due to this problem, there’s
a need of making hospitals more resource efficient and
one way to improve the eff
iciency is by
look
ing

into hospital logistics to see what could be done
better.

This study contains a theoretical review on what has been written about hospital logistics in the
context of
materials
(medicine, laundry, food,
consumable supplies

etc). We ex
pect an extensive
review searching
through
different journals leading to a theoretical report on hospital logistics as
well as a comprehensive list of references.


How is automation used within hospital logistics?

Interview, literature study or survey

Acc
ording to the Swedish medical association there will be a need of additional resources in order to
reach the national goals regarding quality and availability of care. The demographical development

.

This stu
dy contains the process of finding information about how hospitals are working with
automation within their logistic processes

in the context of materials
(medicine, laundry, food,
consumable supplies

etc). This research question could be carried out through

a literature study,
interviews or a survey. The result should be presented in a written report containing information
about whether automati
on is used within

hospital logistics, what kind of automa
tion is used

and
how
you think automation could/should be incorporated into hospital logistics in the future.
