How Logistics Sparks the Healthcare Revolution
The need for complex logistics support is another reminder that personalized medicine requires a multi-faceted approach from professionals in many disciplines.
There is a revolution taking place in healthcare delivery.
Patient-centred care is changing the way that professionals think about health and its management, which is reshaping healthcare organisations and their funding structures.
The revolution is all about putting patients and their individual needs at the centre of healthcare systems.
The potential benefits of this revolution are enormous, but none of them can be delivered without a matching revolution in intelligent, data-rich logistics.
Specialized, personalized care also depends on extensive systems support.
One critical area is temperature-controlled logistics, as many personalized therapies are biologic and highly temperature sensitive in nature, needing temperature management throughout the logistics chain.
