LIFEMED - Integrated Logistics of Drugs and Medical Devices

Subject: Health

The aim of the project is to create an innovative organisation-logistics model to manage logistics related to medical devices and drugs. The model will provide the integrated cover of the entire management chain (prescription and management of demand, supplies, logistics, preparation, set up and drug administration). The above will be achieved by developing ICT solutions that can activate new management models and increase the level of interaction between hospitals. The proposal plans in particular on testing some prototypes for the management of drug-related logistics in a network of hospitals in the area of Milano and Torino. By designing anew the processes of hospital drug logistics, it will be possible to implement an optimised model based on the centralised management of multi-company drugs on an urban/zone scale.
