Therapy Focussed Solutions

Negotiate changes in today's healthcare marketplace with therapy-focused supply chain solutions.

The healthcare market is currently undergoing acute and far-reaching changes, this is particularly true for the medical device market. With the move from the 2P (patient and physician) to the 5P (patient, physician, provider, payer and policy maker) model, there can be more than twice the number of stakeholders making purchasing decisions, increasing complexity along the supply chain and heightening expectations.

Vascular device procedure kits, which include various low-value disposable components, are particularly susceptible to this trend. To offset these pressures, medical device manufacturers are employing unique contracting practices by bundling core devices with ancillary support products. This increases the value of their proprietary technology. However, bundled products in the form of packs, kits and trays often involve a chain of vendors leading to excessive inventories and increased potential for lapses in quality control.
