10:35 am - 10:55 am Orchestrating Patient Outcomes: How Serialization and the Digital Network Platform Will Transform Specialty Pharma

High-complexity specialty pharmaceuticals—from cell and gene therapies to biosimilars—are driving the need for flawlessly orchestrated end-to-end patient-driven supply chains. The goal in this fast growing specialty pharma space is clear: deliver safe and effective personalized medicines to the right patient at the right time.
 
After many years without a driving patient-centric ethos and often competing agendas, the healthcare ecosystem has become fragmented and complex. Fundamental change is needed to build holistic capabilities to support the drive to personalized medicine. Leading and managing this transformational journey has become an urgent business challenge. 

Who will succeed in this new paradigm? Companies who harness their serialized data with advanced analytics on a digital network platform to orchestrate patient outcomes and unlock business value from past compliance efforts will be the true digital pioneers. In this keynote session, Roddy Martin, Chief Digital Strategist at TraceLink, will explain how new digital platforms will enable this transformation, and how specialty pharma companies can use the 5-stage maturity model to plan their journey.
