In 1990, Jens-Rainer Allenberg, Georg Hagmüller and Jon Largiadèr had the then quite exotic sounding - but from today’s perspective very forward-looking - idea to standardise vascular surgery techniques and train on life-like models. This meant a shift in the technical surgical learning curve away from the patient towards the model - even at that time it was an essential contribution to what is a very popular topic today: patient safety. The traditional idea that surgical training and further training can only take place in the operating theatre (in the extreme, also described as ‘see one, do one, teach one’) therefore became history. Vascular International and Ulrich AG have been fostering a partnership for many years, in which Ulrich AG equips the Vascular International courses with surgical instruments.
The purchasing forum formed in early 2000 by a group of private hospitals later became an association, the Purchasing Syndicate of Swiss Hospitals (EGSK), and opened up its activity to other hospitals and clinics. With their know-how and cooperation, the members of the EGSK enable sustainable value creation to be achieved. 25 Swiss hospitals and clinics are currently represented by the EGSK.
With increasing cost pressures within the healthcare sector, saving initiatives of healthcare departments, and the concentration process within the industry, hospitals are looking for new ways to provide their services in a more efficient and cost-effective way. Founded in 2005 by seven hospitals in the Canton of Zürich, GEBLOG now has 28 members (33 hospitals) in 13 different German-speaking cantons. GEBLOG (Gesundheitswesen Beschaffung & Logistik/‘Procurement & Logistics in Healthcare’), is a non-profit organisation owned by the associated members. Its main task is the strategic procurement of medical supplies and investment goods.
Medsupply provides Swiss hospitals with professional services to optimise the procurement costs of goods and services the hospital needs.
