Supply Chain in the time of the Coronavirus
The coronavirus pandemic has shifted the hospital supply chain towards taking a more proactive approach when anticipating supply needs – different from their traditional processes.
Forecasting is becoming more essential for hospitals as supply needs fluctuate during these uncertain times. Focusing on optimizing supply chain visibility and aligning supply capacities allows for better decision-based outcomes and helps minimize unnecessary reactions and associated costs.
When we start to move on from the pandemic, hospitals will benefit from utilizing key takeaways from their current processes. This includes improvements in forecasting and error minimization, creating a hub approach to help analyze data and capacity planning.
