Uitgebreide vaknaam Healthcare Purchasing And Supply Chains
Leerdoelen Upon the completion of the course the student is able to:
1. understand the healthcare systems used worldwide and their payments systems and incentives
2. understand the role of healthcare purchasers in achieving the right care at the right place
3. understand how healthcare providers (e.g. physicians) perceive and respond to the (financial) incentives
4. analyse how the purchasers manages the supply chain and how they govern the relationship with providers (e.g. hospitals, long-term organizations)
5. how and why different purchasing strategies develop and how this relates to differences in healthcare systems
Omschrijving Healthcare purchasers play an important role in the task division and coordination of supply chains by applying their purchasing practices. In this course students develop a better understanding of the perspective of healthcare purchasers in different health systems by applying different theories (e.g. agency theory). How can the buyer/supplier relationship between healthcare purchasers (e.g. health insurers, municipalities) and healthcare providers be governed by contractual and relational governance? How can knowledge and information sharing affect the collaboration between healthcare purchaser and healthcare provider and between healthcare providers? What is the role of payment systems (e.g. fee-for-service, pay for performance and population-based payment) and their financial incentives in delivering the right care at the right place? In this course we will discuss the role of contract characteristics and the negotiation process on the performance of healthcare providers. This course explains advantages and disadvantages of purchasing based on price and contracts versus purchasing based on quality, long-term relationships and trust. By comparing cases within and outside the Netherlands, explanations will be given of how and why different purchasing strategies develop and how this relates to differences in healthcare systems. The main focus of the course is on the procurement of healthcare by insurers and municipalities. However, we also pay attention to the procurement of strategic items (e.g. expensive medicines, capital goods like MRI) by healthcare providers.
