The Pharma/Healthcare global supply chain is, needless to say, a complex and extensive one. It’s also a time-critical one, with careful planning, coordination and execution that’s simply non-negotiable. The road from clinical trials to final delivery of drugs into the marketplace must be carefully followed—with a complex journey that includes scientific labs, manufacturing sites, distribution centers, and ultimately, patients.

  • The strategic components of this vital lifeline
  • The significant planning and strategy required
  • How all of the players in the pharma/healthcare supply chain can best communicate and coordinate
  • And how to be prepared when unexpected events—including one of the magnitude of COVID-19—dictate an immediate shift in plans
