Supply chain operations within an evolving health care system 


The manufacturing of pharmaceuticals and medical devices has become more complex. The healthcare industry is quickly changing, with the need for more products increasing, as well as ensuring that the life cycles are lengthening. Regulations are becoming stricter, with quality and compliance becoming more and more important. All of this is leading to the need for supply chain management to be cost effective and more efficient. 

There are lots of opportunities to re-evaluate and drive new operational models that can bring about savings, efficiency and greater collaboration. Whether it is a hospital, pharmaceutical manufacturer, drug distributor or retailer, every link in the chain could better manage their inventory or work more closely with suppliers.

By embracing the challenge of supply-chain leadership, pharmaceutical and medical-device companies can provide safer, more affordable access to products that enhance the lives of patients. This conference will highlight lessons from leading experts to help improve the operations around KSA and the region.
