The healthcare industry comprises of global supply chains which are complex and specialist, in terms of sources of supply, and can require distribution channels that spread over long distances. Many organizations still don’t have oversight or control over how their suppliers are performing and a lack of time and resources are the main reasons for not consistently monitoring supply chain risks.
Sustainability and responsible sourcing strategies play a large role in reducing potential risks and protecting an organization’s brand and reputation. Furthermore, risk of diversion and quality excursions are frequent downstream concerns for pharmaceutical organisations, attempting to reach patients globally. Finally, as globalization increases, healthcare organizations need to mitigate risk from threats such as counterfeit products which could threaten the safety of patients.
