“AZ Maria Middelares is in the middle of an important change trajectory, given the development and construction of our new campus building. This project challenges us to not only focus on the care we deliver, but also assess the underlying care support processes. For this, we successfully call on the expertise of MINOZ and its networking opportunities. Our employees are getting trained and acquire the most recent management knowledge within the field.”

"There is a tendency to group medical material for operations. However, it is unclear what the exact composition of those sets should be. What’s the operational impact on ‘picking and storing’? Is it, for some settings, useful to have more than the minimal needed material, and if so, what’s the additional cost? The proposed optimisation model allows us to test and evaluate different scenario’s prior to supplier negotiations and actual custom pack configuration.”
