Государственные закупки здравоохранения: роль поставщиков в работе больниц
The research is devoted to the suppliers influence on hospital work on the example of Moscow
public procurement in hospitals. An agency model defining the hospital interaction stages with
suppliers were constructed. Using the descriptive statistics method and graphical data analysis,
procurement was considered with the author’s database including 512 681 contracts of 1,2
trillion rubles for 2011–2019. The supplier’s work strategies and their fallouts for the services
were emphasized. The criteria the suppliers must have to the contract execution were developed.
The hypothesis was tested that suppliers selected in a competitive way ensure the effective
procurement for hospitals. The empirical analysis showed that drug procurement had a strong
competition at auctions and budget savings. The findings concluded that the suppliers play
various roles in hospital work. The favourable situation is that the supplier fulfills the contract
delivering quality procurement at an affordable price, in full and due time.
