Healthcare Supply Chain Framework for Optimization Process: Literature Review and Some Issues

Abstract

At present, conditions throughout the world require good health services, coronavirus
attacks make this relevant for further research. Good health services need support from
good supply chain management. Performance in the supply chain can be operated well if
a framework for the supply chain structure is available. The heathcare supply chain
management system will be different when the context and environment are different from
normal conditions. In the case of the Covid-19 pandemic the community needs a fast
response from hospital services. The speed of the number of patients increases
exponentially. This will affect the performance of the manufacturing supply chain where
human resources will be reduced exponentially. The limited number of hospitals that are
referred to patient care is limited, increasing the complexity of the problems faced by the
healthcare supply chain. The challenge that must be resolved is how the available
resources are optimized to achieve their main objectives. For the stages of answering this
challenge, an appropriate framework is needed. Based on the literature review and
interviews with parties involved in the healthcare supply chain, a framework was
developed to manage the healthcare supply chain. The main components of the proposed
framework include: the objective function, performance indicators, constraints, risk, and
players.
