      What our customers say

      Dirk Schmuda, Head of Central Purchasing

      Red Cross Hospital, Munich – Germany

      What current challenge in the health system has L&R OPTILINE been able to help you with?

      “The change in the hospital landscape implies, among other things, an increase in outpatient care in clinics. With L&R OPTILINE Outpatient, we have the added value of process optimisation. We can order everything from a single source, which gives staff more time for their core processes.” 

      What do you see as the general advantages of L&R OPTILINE?

      “We get optimised processes via L&R OPTILINE. This not only means significant time saving for staff, but also brings financial added value through centralisation and product streamlining. Advice and support from experienced L&R specialists are another success factor.” 

      What projects have you implemented with L&R OPTILINE and what results have already been achieved?

      “Firstly, the single-use instruments project. For this project, optimisation proposals and their benefits were presented on a monetary and a process level. Implementation was smooth and well-structured. Another is the modern wound care project. A main result of this has been savings in process costs as added value.”

      Andreas Wolf, Deputy Head of Administration

      Isar Hospital Munich – Germany

      In your opinion, what are the current challenges in the hospital market and in your daily work? How does L&R OPTILINE support you in solving these challenges?

      “As an L&R OPTILINE customer, we have close contact with our supplier. This is generally a closely coordinated cooperation rather than a traditional supplier relationship. I think that, in addition to the optimisation and consulting services, the close relationship between the customer and the manufacturer is one of L&R OPTILINE's great strengths.

      Another major issue for our hospital is "sustainability"We originally opted for the L&R Kitpack OR Custom Procedure Tray, in which most of the products are not individually packed, saving on process costs. Additionally, with Kitpack we have been able to reduce waste so that there is around 80% less packaging to dispose of compared to working with individually packed products.” 

      What do you see as the major added value of L&R OPTILINE that is particularly important to you?

      “In terms of the projects that we have implemented in cooperation with professional groups such as nurses, OR staff and doctors, the optimisation of ward storage and the resulting improved search efforts are particular stand-outs. If employees need only a few seconds less to do this, they gain valuable working time. The expertise of the L&R OPTILINE staff also makes our work considerably easier.” 

      What projects have you been able to implement with L&R OPTILINE so far, and what have you been able to achieve here in terms of optimisation?

      “The first was the OR project, where we ended up providing around 1,000 OR standards with 14 drape sets – that in itself was a considerable success for us. This has standardised workflows in the OR, which has also resulted in measurable time savings overall.

      The second project concerned the ward range. Standardisation of the seven normal wards was particularly effective for us. It was interesting to find out whether there might be an alternative for an article in another ward, or whether an article in a particular ward is now redundant and is only still there for historical reasons. In this way we’ve been able to save on volume, materials and process costs.

      The third area was negative pressure therapy, which brought us procedural relief. After switching to the L&R CNP therapy units, we no longer need to sign them in and out, send them away and receive them again, as it was the case before. We also consider it positive that the exudate containers no longer need to be thrown away. As such, we also have a favourable arrangement in terms of sustainability.”

      Dr. Mirko Manojlović, Surgeon

      JZU Gradiška Public Hospital – Bosnia and Herzegovina

      Why did you choose L&R OPTILINE and how have the L&R specialists been able to help you optimise your processes?

      “Our public hospital needed a detailed, objective assessment. L&R OPTILINE was able to uncover all the disruptive factors in our facility and system. Customised efficient solutions were developed for JZU Gradiška on the basis of these findings.”

      Which specific projects have you implemented with L&R OPTILINE and what results have been achieved?

      “In the course of professional consulting, numerous projects have been realised – from the standardisation of our processes to the introduction of Kitpack OR sets and the training of our staff by L&R specialists. This mainly enabled savings in human and material resources.”

      What do you see as the advantages of L&R OPTILINE?

      “The L&R specialists take a professional inventory of the facility, recognise its potential and offer appropriate, tailor-made optimisation proposals as well as support with their implementation. By implementing L&R OPTILINE, we have been able to improve the quality of our health services and the efficiency of our own facility.”

      Emilija Kostoska, General Manager of Fila Farm

      Zan Mitrev Clinic – North Macedonia

      Why did you choose L&R OPTILINE and what added value does the service solution offer you?

      “As one of the leading hospitals in North Macedonia, our daily work daily work confronts us with many different challenges. In order to maintain our high standards, L&R OPTILINE offers us an attractive concept at the highest level and helps us to permanently reduce our costs. We are expecting savings of around 15,000 euros in the first year.”

      Irena Dimitrova, Export Import Manager

      Zan Mitrev Clinic – North Macedonia

      Why did you choose L&R OPTILINE and what added value does the service solution offer you?

      “Thanks to L&R OPTILINE, we now have everything from a single source. As we now receive all products from one supplier, the stability of goods delivery is guaranteed.

      This not only saves us from problems, but also simplifies our internal processes enormously, as we also receive only one invoice, for example.”

      In an outpatient setting, a distinction is drawn between the supplies needed for the practice and those needed for consultations. The supplies needed for the practice are purchased and paid for directly by the doctor. The supplies for consultations are reimbursed by statutory health insurance providers. We analyse for you the extent to which you make full use of the supplies needed for consultations. There are often clear opportunities for making savings. In the case of one customer, we managed to achieve savings of €44,800 in this way.

      Our customised services

      Logistics. Digitalisation & E-Business. Sustainability.

      Logistics

      We look at the topic of logistics on a case by case basis. Here, you need services that are tailored to your challenges. The shortage of health professionals is having a major impact on aspects such as logistics in the health sector. Medical staff invest time in logistical activities instead of patient care.

      L&R works with you to develop concepts that allow your staff to concentrate on their core activities again. 

      We will support you with aspects such as

      • organising your in-house logistics 
      • determining and analysing  
        • consumption rates
        • minimum stock levels
        • optimal order levels
        • fixed delivery cycles

      Benefit from these and many other logistics services. 

      Digitalisation & E-Business

      Digitalisation in the health market is one of the TOP subjects now and for the future. The Digital Lab, founded in 2020, sets L&R up for the digital future. In the Digital Lab, we work with specialist departments and customers to develop digital services, innovative product ideas and new business models. We use methods such as design thinking and Scrum and provide important impetus for agile and digital transformation.

      With various digitalisation tools, L&R OPTILINE can also provide support here:

      • Webshops
      • Scanner systems – to optimise your procurement processes
      • E-business and EDI in the areas of ordering, contracting, delivery and invoicing
      • Start-up cooperations
      • Apps

      1. Back office and on-site analysis

      We perform a comprehensive back office and on-site analysis based on your data and needs.

      3. Evaluation phase with practical trial

      To allow you to judge for yourself the quality of our products and the solution we have developed for you, we first trial them on-site together with your users.

      4. Feedback interviews

      In the subsequent feedback interviews, we take on board the wishes of all parties involved and any changes suggested and fine-tune the concept to your needs. Our goal is to meet a standard that is accepted by all parties involved.

      5. Supporting implementation and training

      Our L&R experts perform implementation and training on-site at your premises to the jointly agreed standard.
