Abstract

Health logistics are traditionally overlooked in Italy as scarcely strategic. More recently, Italian Central Government and Region have reviewed costs only in the direction of a curtailing of the pro-patient cost. Today we know that a more costeffective organization can be obtained also increasing the productivity of administration and services. More and more literature is produced about Supply Chain and Logistics for healthcare services, emphasizing the growing attention on the subject. This paper analyzes a real case study from an Italian public healthcare organization, to verify the impact, in terms of efficiency and cost-effectiveness, of a logistic improvement, particularly in pharmaceutics area.
