In Europe, it is estimated that over 140,000 heart valve operations are carried out every year, an average of more than 500 per day. So is this the daily routine in dozens of hospitals? On the contrary, replacing a heart valve is a complicated operation every single time.
Rhenus Health-Tech Services has to make sure that the right heart valve is delivered at the right moment to the hospital where the operation will take place. In addition, Rhenus Health-Tech Services ensures that the valuable heart valves are in stock, registers the orders and the returns as well as being responsible for all the related financial arrangements.
Rhenus Health-Tech Services is thus responsible for the total supply chain for heart valve operations.
With its activities, Rhenus Health-Tech Services seamlessly answers the needs in the area of medical technology and devices who are established outside the EU but sell their products to the EU, the Middle East and/or Africa. Rhenus Health-Tech Services supplies all logistical and order processing, whether it concerns heart valves or MRI scanners. Flexibility is key. Sales peaks are completely absorbed and Rhenus Health-Tech Services also delivers, for example, the corresponding data of its goods transactions that is needed by its client's tax representative. The customer support department of Rhenus Health-Tech Services informs clients about e.g. delivery times, and can also answer questions about products. This gives clients enough room to concentrate fully on their own product development and marketing activities.
