The client: healthcare industry player
Area of engagement: Supply chain visibility
In recent years, the spending on healthcare is witnessing a radical increase and stakeholders in the healthcare space are facing the need for technology and operational efficiency to address the social determinants of health. The global healthcare sector comprises of segments including pharmaceuticals, medical devices, medical imaging, and healthcare IT. Also, with the recent shift from a volume based to the value-based environment, healthcare providers are facing the need for deploying innovative care delivery models to meet the relentless demand among the consumer segment. Moreover, the healthcare sector is witnessing promising growth owing to the introduction of digitization as a part of the healthcare system. The industry at large is influenced by factors such as:
Increasing spending on healthcare: The spending on healthcare is increasing owing to the presence of macroeconomic factors such as increasing aging population and the growing prevalence of chronic disorders. To meet the rising needs of the end-user segments, organizations are facing pressures to bring about clinical innovations and enhance their service levels in the healthcare sector.
Innovations: Leading organizations in the healthcare sector are concerned about offering advanced medical assistance while compromising on the costs. To address such concerns, leading businesses have to rely on R&D and innovations to target prevention, monitoring, and treatment to improve healthcare outcomes and reduce costs.
Regulatory compliance: As the services involved in the healthcare sector are a matter of concern for patient health and safety, governments across the globe are strictly imposing regulations on the quality, safety, and efficacy of drugs and medical devices. Also, with the rising availability of counterfeit products, it becomes essential for the government authorities to go beyond the normal compliance and ensure proper regulations before meeting the target requirements.
To address these challenges and reach out to the end-user segment in a seamless and agile manner, leading organizations are utilizing supply chain visibility solutions. Supply chain visibility ensures better transparency into the supply chain activities right from sourcing to the customer delivery. Moreover, organizations can quickly adapt their logistic plan to the current demands and combat additional supply chain risks such as supply disruptions.
