PHARMA 4.0. New operations and logistics model for drug management in healthcare organizations

Drug logistics is composed of a long list of activities (from the reordering of medications in stock to their administration to patients) usually poorly formalized and supported by 2.0 technologies. Warehouse areas obtained from makeshift spaces, excessively simple information systems without intelligence, traditional solutions for the storage of medications without any automation are the major causes of an inefficient logistics process.

The adoption of 4.0 digital solutions and technologies, together with the redesign of processes and the reorganization of activities, generate significant advantages and benefits:

  • improved control of flows;
  • reduction of errors and variances between the distributed and the ordered items;
  • elimination of the time spent searching for medications;

The RISE Laboratory of the University of Brescia (Italy), with the support of IQ Consulting Srl (spin-off of the University of Brescia) and FPA-Forum PA, started this research on healthcare logistics inside care institutions with the objective of studying hospital micro-logistics, with particular attention:

  1. to the activities and procedures carried out;
  2. to the impact of modern 4.0 automation technologies;
  3. to the benefits that can be obtained from the reduction of costs and inefficiencies.

The research makes use of an online survey, aimed at any care institutions equipped with an internal pharmacy; it requires the participations of different professionals, among which the director of the hospital pharmacy, the warehouse manager, logistics personnel of the warehouse (if any).
