The Covid pandemic rattled a very fragile medical and pharmaceutical supply chain, which has proved very costly to health systems due to supply inflation, canceled procedures, and inefficient labor utilization. Contributing factors to these challenges include globalization, poor data standards, lack of transparency, and inadequate preparation. However, there are solutions, and the industry is adapting quickly. Health care providers can focus on three main areas:

1) Metrics and accountability
2) Preparation and planning
3) Operational forecasting.

This webinar will define key strategies that supply chain professionals can take to prepare for the future.

At the conclusion of this session, participants should be able to:

-Recall the nature and scope of global health care supply issues.
- Identify the root cause of supply issues.
- Recite the key metrics to help understand a health system resiliency risk.
- Discuss the elements of a strong resiliency plan.
- Describe how to use data to develop actionable operational forecasting.
