Data: the public health supply chain's biggest challenge and opportunity
Public health supply chains face
two big challenges
.The first is the
availability of complete, accurate, and timely data
. The second is
isolated silos of data
, which disconnect global supply chains from in-country supply chains.
Without accurate, timely data available across the supply chain, it is extremely difficult for donors, organizations, and service providers that manage public health programs to make informed decisions based on facts and, ultimately, to reach their program goals.
PFSCM has invested in a next-generation Control Tower, which will enable public health supply chain stakeholders to connect to a single, digital cloud-based platform that will streamline stakeholders' data input capabilities and provide them access to previously idle and isolated data.
The combination of accurate, real-time, and all-encompassing data will provide donors, governments, countries, vendors, and all stakeholders with the tailored information they need to make data-driven decisions that ensure the optimal performance of the supply chain.
