Increasing Quality, Reducing Costs
Optimally linking purchasing strategy with operative procurement decisions is an important component of the Asklepios corporate philosophy. Our clinics therefore have their own purchasing departments, which are strongly supported by the purchasing division. Framework contracts concluded from strategically made purchases form a decisive instrument for this. Framework contracts are negotiated for a very diverse palette of products, for example:
- Capital goods
- Disposable medical devices
Through the group-wide consolidation of procurement volume, considerably better purchasing conditions could be achieved on the market as well as in the respective hospitals. This also guarantees that products are selected in accordance with the highest quality demands, thus ensuring that the best possible treatment quality is obtained for patients.
