It is the age of rapid delivery, and it does not stop at retail. The rise of eCommerce is affecting all industries, including the business of healthcare. According to Goldman Sachs, the healthcare industry is prepared to spend an estimated $32 billion on eCommerce and web services annually. That is five times more than the $6 billion online retailers currently spend annually on all forms of eCommerce and services.
Benjamin Patipa, MD., Vice President of Healthcare Strategy for MonarchFx, has just recorded a new video The Healthcare Logistics Solution. Patipa explains why the healthcare product supply business as we know it has changed forever, why sellers must switch to a single unified supply chain, and MonarchFx’s healthcare logistics solution.
Healthcare supply chain leaders are experiencing five main industry trends consolidation, cost reduction, distribution and supplier model changes, and data-driven decision making. In addition to the demand to increase profits, these leaders face pressure to rethink traditional distribution and supplier models.
The video explains the key feature to healthcare logistics. Healthcare logistics need to be 100% consumer centric providing convenience. Companies must ensure the customer can interact, engage, and buy any way, anytime, and anywhere they want, also providing immediate delivery.
