The Future of Healthcare

The Future of Healthcare

In 2015, SCM World established the Future of Healthcare Advisory Board to recognise the critical role supply chain can play in improving the accessibility of healthcare. Its mission is to identify, research and tackle supply chain issues that impact patient care.

The board consists of global supply chain and operations leaders from organisations across the full patient value chain: providers, distributors, and pharmaceutical and medical device manufacturers.

In 2016 the board is focused on improving collaboration across the value chain for two purposes. First, to identify and reduce wasted medicines across the value chain. Second, to quantify the impact that excellence in supply chain can have on better patient outcomes and reducing the cost of care.
