Abstract

The chain of activities to provide medical professionals with the right products at the right place and at the right time is a complex but critical part of any hospital. The result of this study is a board game in which six players fulfill the roles of nursing, department management, and central warehouse management, thereby together simulating a hospital situation. Each role has its own in-game goals, but players must work together to create a successful internal supply chain. The observations during the test sessions and the evaluation and survey results after the test sessions indicate that playing Care 4 Supply can improve the hospital's internal supply chain performance by engaging stakeholders in three main ways: involve stakeholders in the internal supply chain; increase supply chain knowledge and improve relationships.
