Supply Value helps leaders in healthcare collaborate smarter with their supply chain partners, as a result of which they create sustainable value at lower costs and less risk.
Care: continuously in motion
The Dutch healthcare market is developing rapidly and that brings new challenges. Health care is the largest cost item in our country with almost 75 billion euros. The pressure to organize care efficiently so that it remains affordable also increases. Supply Value helps healthcare institutions, insurers and providers to deal with the complex issues they are struggling with.
The Dutch healthcare market is characterized by:
The increasing demand for care due to the aging of the population: 25% of the Dutch population is expected to be older than 65 in 2030;
The rising health care costs: currently the health care costs amount to more than 95 billion euros per year and they threaten to become unaffordable;
A shortage of health personnel: in 2019 the expectation is that the personnel shortage in care will increase by 80%.
In recent years, the influence of the Dutch government has declined and the influence of European laws and regulations has increased. In addition, the Dutch population is getting older. In 2035 there are expected to be four million over-65s (versus 3.2 million in 2018). Technological developments are also developing at a rapid pace, with the position of the consumer changing. You can access your own medical records and you can measure and track body functions yourself via app's. In addition, there is a shortage of personnel in the healthcare sector and more and more responsibilities are being shifted to primary care, such as general practitioners. The costs and risks in healthcare are increasing due to changing legislation and outdated organizational models. These developments require continuous coordination of business operations. Supply Value helps leaders in healthcare collaborate smarter with their supply chain partners, as a result of which they create sustainable value at lower costs and less risk.

ICT has become critical in healthcare in recent decades. Meanwhile, the risks of cyber attacks are increasing. Are your data still safe, do your systems still communicate with each other, what if a system fails and how are you going to implement that one new app within your already complicated ICT landscape. Are you going to the cloud and if so when and under what conditions? The Supply Value advisors help you set up your information governance (organization, process, tools, KPIs, consultation and reporting structure) for the management and development of your ICT. We help you with drawing up your information strategy and plans and with their implementation. We also help you with setting up enterprise, business and domain architectures so that everyone knows where we work together. In addition, we are experts in translating data into information so that you or a robotised process can make the right decisions based on that.
Supply Chain Management
Nowadays much is required of you as a healthcare institution, insurer or provider. The patient has high expectations, employees must be satisfied and goals must be achieved, while political and technological developments follow each other in rapid succession. We help your care organization with drawing up annual, company and department plans. In addition, we can set up your performance management and governance and we can set up a process of continuous improvement. This ensures that your healthcare organization not only makes small improvements, but continuously improves itself to meet the internal and external requirements of your stakeholders.
