Healthcare systems around the globe are facing challenges that affect the entire supply chain, from pharmaceutical to medical device supplies, manufacturers, wholesalers, distributors, group purchasing organizations and healthcare service providers. Everyone is concerned primarily about two main issues: increasing supply chain efficiency and more importantly, ensuring patient safety.

The regulatory landscape continues to evolve and new regulations have a direct impact on the healthcare supply chain, requiring stakeholders to implement automatic identification technologies, electronic product catalogues, serialization (a unique serial number on each package or product, where appropriate) and/or traceability systems. Join this workshop now to learn more about the DOs and DON’Ts in healthcare supply chain system and the success factors in uplifting the traceability.

This training is designed to demonstrate how global standards and enabling technologies can help address the diversified healthcare challenges through sharing of global and local case studies and exercises, such as:
。the new Unique Device Identification (UDI) system requirement on medical device management released by U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA)
