A Study of the Impact of the Organizational Purchasing Structure on Supplier’s Performance in the Hospital Sector

Kaoutar Jenoui

Abstract

The purchasing function plays a key role in the hospital sector. To achieve economies of scale in process costs, one of the questions that arises as a healthcare organization is whether to centralize or decentralize purchasing activities. Several managers of hospital systems mentioned the problem of choosing a better purchasing structure. In most cases, the choice of the organizational purchasing structure directly involves an impact on supplier’s performance. However, this impact has never been considered in this decision. Organizational innovation is a major issue for the performance of hospitals, but the performance of suppliers also has a heavy impact on the improvement of health infrastructure. Nowadays supplier’s performance is an essential element for improving the quality process of hospital care. In this context, we propose to analyse whether considering supplier’s performance could affect the decision regarding the organizational purchasing structure in the hospital sector. We verify the influence of purchasing structures on both the objectives of the hospital purchasing process, as well as on the performance of suppliers, through a study-test carried out in CHIS Rabat- Morocco.
