Abstract

The application of purchasing portfolio models in hospitals as well as the impact of a pandemic shock on product classifications remains largely unknown. This research aims to assess hospital purchasers’ procurement strategies during the Covid-19 pandemic and how the purchasing portfolio categorizations hold up in this situation. This is a qualitative study of hospital purchasing in the Netherlands with thirteen informants, supported by secondary data from official government publications. An important finding is that purchasers and governments fulfill the role of being important gatekeepers in channeling factor market rivalry, thereby reducing potential harmful competition between and within hospitals.
