My name is Rüdiger Müller. I am an expert with significant experience in all matters relating to hospital purchasing. I use and pass on this knowledge with the aim of improving the relationship between hospital purchasing and hospital sales in the long term and for the benefit of both parties.
Sometimes it is possible to optimise on prices; other times, prices are already at a level that offers little room for adjustment. There is often great room for optimisation in structures and processes on both the hospital and the industry side.
I see myself as:
for long-term, quality cooperation between all parties at both the internal and external level.
I spent ten years working in management and purchasing for the MEDINOS hospitals in the Sonneberg district, MEDINOS Service GmbH and regioMed-Kliniken GmbH Sonneberg. I served as strategic head of central purchasing for the holding company, purchasing manager for one of the affiliated companies and as managing director.
Alongside this, I volunteered for the buyers’ association Femak e.V. , where I spent eight years as federal chairman.
To qualify for these positions, I obtained a diploma in Business Administration, a Bachelor’s degree in Health and Social Affairs, as well as an additional qualification in Logistics Management.
Through my many years of work as a board member of the professional association Femak e.V., I came to understand the perspectives of a wide range of hospital buyers – but that’s not all. Femak e.V. also works closely with industry. As such, I am highly familiar with both perspectives and with their challenges and needs. I use this knowledge to facilitate successful long-term cooperation.
