  • Tuesday, December 14, 2021

Patient safety, timely availability of medicines as well as operational efficiency are increasingly important drivers in the pharmaceutical industry. Modern medicines are becoming more complex and, therefore, increasingly temperature and time sensitive.

In this webinar, participants will learn from pharma and clinical supply chain specialists how integration of different hardware and software systems have contributed to improved patient safety and faster availability of new drugs.

Complex stakeholder structures and their use of many different software and hardware systems are delaying decision-making on product status. Integration of relevant systems is a pivotal tool to enhance rapid and conclusive decision-making based on consolidated and complete end-to-end datasets. Further, integration provides the opportunity to optimize the supply chain.

Register for this webinar to hear about the benefits of system integration in temperature monitoring, product release, automation and clinical supply chain optimization.
