Today it’s beyond any doubt that quality of health care and national prosperity are correlated. At the same time, high living standard does not guarantee that unlimited resources will be continuously invested in health care infrastructure. There are many factors, both national and international, that require hospitals to provide services more and more efficiently. As any other company, a hospital can suffer from ineffective logistics. In specific, the internal logistics of smaller packages must be of priority because there is direct access to manage it and to make it efficient almost immediately.

When talking about inefficient logistics, beside numbers about speed and time some other rather obvious side-effects of human based logistics must be mentioned:

  • personnel use elevators, which decreases its availability,
  • personnel tend to create time losses by excess of socialization,
  • personnel affect overall hospital hygienic environment, especially influencing restricted areas.
