EKANBAN® integrated logisitics model at Setúbal's Hospital Complex

The implementation of the Ekanban® Logistics Model at the Setúbal Hospital Complex (CHS) had one main challenge: to provide referential means for the hospital's entire logistics process, in order to reduce operational costs.    

CHS had the following main goals in mind:    

  • Improving processes related to logistics;
  • Efficient control of all materials used by the service users;
  • Consumption rationalisation;
  • Improving the physical storage conditions;
  • Improving communication between warehouse and services. 

The Setúbal Hospital Complex (comprised by São Bernardo Hospital (HSB) and the Santiago do Outão Orthopaedic Centre) has hired BIQ Health Solutions to implement a Project of Rationalisation of Logistic Processes in regards to clinical, accommodation and administrative consumption. The project had 3 main phases:    

Phase I - Main Warehouse; 
Phase II - Service Users; 
Phase III - Auditing and Monitoring Indexes.
