Tech-in-Trace Healthcare Forum 8 February 2018

The patient is entitled to the best care. Safer, more efficient care starts with a simple scan.

To increase patient safety, supply chain efficiency, traceability and accurate data synchronisation in healthcare, a cost-efficient yet robust supply chain management strategy goes a long way. With the adoption of open global standards, an integrated supply chain can drive remarkable changes in business processes and work with positive results in better quality services, cost reduction and efficiency.

This forum is targeted at pharmaceutical and medical devices manufacturers, wholesalers and distributors, group purchasing organisations, hospitals, pharmacies, logistics providers, governmental and regulatory bodies and trade associations.
