5 TECHNOLOGIES THAT ARE POISED TO DISRUPT THE HEALTHCARE SUPPLY CHAIN
The supply chain has carved out a critical role for itself as the healthcare industry shifts to a value-based model. In today’s evolving business environment, a data-rich supply chain contains the fuel that will help healthcare stakeholders tackle big industry challenges, including reducing variation through insights into which products work best for which patients. In the years ahead, we expect innovative technologies to facilitate supply chain advancements that will help the industry deliver against its mission of providing better care at lower costs. Here are five technologies that will play a prominent role in the healthcare supply chain’s continued evolution. It’s exciting to see AI technology already being adopted in healthcare, especially around the ability to use genomics, socio-economic and behavioral data to predict future patient needs. It’s also exciting to consider how the supply chain could utilize this data to better plan for the types of products and services required to support patient care. AI could also help predict potential shortages or backorders and enable the industry to ensure availability of products where they are needed, while avoiding overstocking areas where products are at risk of expiring before usage.
