  1. The implementation of Prime Vendor Europe and its successful impact on an overseas naval medical treatment facility.

    Article - En anglais

    Prime Vendor Europe (PVE) is the commercial pharmaceutical ordering and delivery program that is revolutionizing overseas health care delivery at military health care treatment facilities located in the European theater.

    Mirroring civilian programs already available and replacing the Federal Supply System, PVE offers many benefits never before realized at overseas military health care treatment facilities, including :

    • diminished order turnaround times with resultant decreased Operating Target requirements ;

    • rapid order confirmation after order placement ;

    • lower carrying costs and inventory needs ;

    • better dating of pharmaceuticals received ;

    • redistribution and increased efficiency of the current manhours needed to operate a pharmacy supply system ;

    • order tracking capabilities ;

    • and enhancement of the present cooperative and constructive dichotomous relationship between medical logistics and pharmacy regarding pharmaceutical purchasing practices.

    This paper will explore the fundamentals, past performance, continuous quality improvement of logistical functions, framework establishment for PVE, implementation of PVE, and subsequent observed command benefits of PVE realization.
