    Abstract

    Pharmaceuticals are a vital part of patient treatment and the timely delivery of pharmaceuticals to patients is therefore important. Hospitals are complex systems that provide a challenging environment for decision making. Implementing process changes and technologies to improve the pharmaceutical distribution process can therefore be a complex and challenging undertaking. A comparative case study was conducted
    benchmarking the pharmaceutical distribution process at a Danish and US hospital to identify best practices. Using the ANP method, taking tangible and intangible aspects into consideration, the most suitable solution for pharmaceutical distribution reflecting management preferences was identified.
