Overview

Throughout history, the development and application of technology has been crucial to progress in healthcare provision. The shape that healthcare processes take will impact not only the quality of the resulting service but also the way in which suppliers of healthcare products will need to operate to make the most of their opportunities.
In this cutting edge guide to strategic supply chain management, Rob Whewell shows how to develop a strategy to protect your pharmaceutical business from key threats whether legal or illegal.

Parallel trading and counterfeit drugs, the requirements of organizations such as the FDA demanding more rigorous controls and traceability, new technologies and new ways of working with wholesalers or alternative distributors, all offer a new flexibility in manufacturing and the ability to respond to immediate opportunities or crises in any given market. The authoritatively written Supply Chain in the Pharmaceutical Industry provides you with the means to develop a strategic approach to supply chain that allows you to minimize risk and ensure flexibility and improved long-term profitability.
