WHITE PAPER: Supply Chain Reacts To Healthcare Cost Pressures With Innovative Partnerships
By Dave Bode, VP, Health Care Solutions, DSC Logistics
Innovation defines a wide range of initiatives that supply chain leaders in life sciences companies are pursuing to best help their organizations meet the fundamental changes occurring in the industry, such as heightened regulatory enforcement, outcomes-based reimbursement, consumer vs. provider centric care, increased access to care, and new taxes. The magnitude of these changes was made perfectly clear at a healthcare conference hosted by Gartner in November 2012. The keynote speaker, Don Cassey, CEO, Medical Segment, Cardinal Health, declared that the healthcare industry must reduce its costs by 30 percent in order to remain sustainable. To put this in perspective, this means that the U.S. healthcare system would need to shed $5 Trillion in operating costs. The need and value of step change innovation in the healthcare industry will never be higher.
