Life sciences companies are reimagining logistics capabilities to meet the new health care needs of today. For life sciences businesses, the supply chain used to mean one thing: getting products from the factory or warehouse to the distributors or ultimate customers as quickly and economically as possible.
Now, with today’s evolving regulatory environment, an increasingly globalized market, more complex health products, and an increased focus on the patient, pharmaceutical companies and medical device manufacturers are looking at their supply chains and logistics needs in a whole new way.
Done well, these processes can lead to competitive advantage, through lower costs, agile response to customer needs, visibility into products throughout the value chain, and expansion into new markets. Done poorly, these processes can lead to low product quality, poor customer relationships, loss of reputation, or even patient death.
And if too much time is spent managing increasingly complex logistics, it detracts from the core competency of the company itself: creating products that improve the health and wellness of the customer.
This live interactive HBR webinar with Markus Hayek of Accenture will look at how life sciences companies can achieve competitive advantage through a well-run supply chain by reimagining the role that the supply chain and logistics functions play in delivering care. Leading practitioners are embracing new digital technologies, sharing more information with partners, and rethinking the roles of customers, supply chain managers, and the C-suite in their business success.
