Objectives and Key Deliverables

We are looking for a consultant to optimize a lab testing network in Germany.

- The current situation:

This company has more than 20 different medical laboratories across Germany. These labs processes blood samples collected from medical doctors and hospitals.

In total, there are more than 2000 different blood sample tests offered to customers and certain tests are only offered at specific labs. Each day more than 100.000 tests are done, leading to high complexity as to how the labs operate as a network.

- The solution:

Due to the high complexity we are looking for a consultant to help us identify and implement the optimal "testing network".

This will include identifying which tests to be done at which lab as well as the resulting logistic flows between labs.

Many constraints need to be taken into account such as testing cost, transportation cost, regulatory limits, health insurance reimbursement schemes, etc.

- The ideal consultant:

Will have strategy consulting skills that will enable them to model the optimal network. It is also essential that they have experience in optimising supply/logistic networks in the healthcare/medical industry.

There is required travel approx 2 days a week.
