    Payor = this is a position held at a Hospital.

    How would you translate it into Spanish?

    What is the equivalent in Spain?

    My try is: "Gestor de Pagos"

    Any other alternatives?

    What would be the best translation from your point of view?

    Many thanks!

    Have you any more context? A Payor (more usually spelled "payer") is normally just a "pagador".

    Hi Dlyons,

    The correct spelling is Payor and it is a position held at a Hospital.

    They can decide what drugs are bought to provide each and all departments at a Hospital.

    Their decision is supported by a decision comittee usually with experts from different departments and is also determined by which drugs are approved and how effective they are in relation to the cost incurred by the Hospital.

    Any ideas as to how this job is referred to in Spain?

    Thanks a lot!

    Hi Psyque.

    I've done some web searching (e.g. below) and the only instancers of Payor I can see, refer to pagadors rather than the function you describe. Can you give the context in which your job appears?

    The context is described in my previous e-mail.

    No sé la palabra exacta que buscas, Psyque, ni sé si se llaman igual en todos los hospitales de España, pero algunas posibilidades son:

    Jefe de almacén.
    Jefe de aprovisionamiento.
    Jefe de la unidad de aprovisionamiento y logística.

    Cosas así se entenderían, mientras no venga alguien y diga que conoce exactamente cómo se llama. :)
