Pune, India, October, 2018 /press release/- Market Research Future Published a Half-Cooked Research Report on Healthcare Supply Chain Management Market Research Report.
The healthcare supply chain management market is presumed to garner exponential growth during the forecast period (2017-2023), registering a phenomenal CAGR, asserts Market Research Future. The main antecedents for the adoption of healthcare supply chain management are the increasing fragmentation of the healthcare industry. Supply chain management refers to the planning, design, execution, control, and monitoring the flow of goods and services to create net value and competitive logistics infrastructure. Healthcare supply chain deals with informational and physical resources required for delivering services to the end-customers.
Potential and Pitfalls
With the transformation of the global business environment, the adoption of supply chain management has increased. The healthcare supply chain management is expanding pervasively mainly due to the increasing pressure to reduce the exceeding cost in the burgeoning healthcare sector. Automation has become a prevalent trend in healthcare mergers and acquisitions and supply chain fields. New suppliers and competitors and increasing healthcare consumerism increase the complexity of the fragmented healthcare supply chain. Supply chain leaders are gradually adapting to the changing landscape by equipping their team members with proper insights, improving collaboration skills, and discarding existing system-wide silos. Supply chain organizations offer access to medical-surgical products in order to reduce supply chain expenses and waste and delivering quality customer service. This is, in turn, helping the healthcare organizations to generate more profit and revenue, which is further escalating the market on the global platform.
On the flip side, lack of innovation and awareness, need for reorganization of business, complications related to integration, and the high cost of maintenance and installation of software are some of the major factors anticipated to retard the market growth in the coming years.
