The healthcare sector faces major challenges, including increasing healthcare use, rising healthcare costs and structural labor shortages.
As a result of these challenges, major transitions are underway in the healthcare sector to keep society future-proof and vital:
- A transformation from a ‘Reactive Care system to’ Proactive and Preventive Care solutions with a focus on individual behavior’, in which self-reliance and the citizen’s own control over their health are central (client-centric).
- The extramuralization of care, whereby care and support will increasingly be provided at citizens’ homes and at locations other than in the care institution.
Healthcare and logistics
The healthcare sector is therefore moving fast and is putting pressure on healthcare logistics managers to stay one step ahead of these changing needs.
The logistics sector plays an essential role in supporting these transitions. The logistics sector is exemplary for this because it makes frequent use of new (technological) developments, is accustomed to having to be adaptive to changes in society and naturally serves as a facilitator by offering services within various sectors.
The right care with the right logistics
Product integrity and healthcare
Product integrity is everything in healthcare. In the pharmaceutical supply chain, the slightest swing in a temperature-controlled truck can cause a drug to lose its effectiveness. At best, this can result in many euros wasted when medicines and therapies have to be thrown away. Worse still, if the problem goes undetected, lives could be at risk.
This challenge has led to a demand for reliable, real-time tracking and monitoring solutions to ensure compliance with safety protocols. Looking ahead, this demand will only increase as the number of pharmaceuticals requiring a cold chain and even cryogenic conditions increases every year.
Flexibility in healthcare logistics
Recent events have underlined the need to build flexibility into healthcare supply chains to strengthen their resilience. When the global pandemic hit, countless supply chains were disrupted, impacting the supply of everything from pharmaceuticals to personal protective equipment. While delays are undesirable in any industry, they can endanger lives in healthcare, making it critical for supply chain managers to find timely solutions when the worst happens.
