Technology adoption in the field of life sciences has streamed ahead by leaps and bounds. The Life-science sector generates and operates with enormous data every day- like clinical trials, patient safety, drug supply chain, inventory management, recall management, etc. Therefore, the life-science sectors face an urgent need to progress technologically in order to keep pace with the fast-growing demands and provide innovative outcomes to the patients. As a result, the life sciences companies need to think beyond their core capabilities and prepare themselves for the next generation of the supply chain.
This is now possible using blockchain technology. The recent COVID-19 pandemic has drastically impacted the healthcare and pharma sector supply chain. The lack of visibility across the supply chain has delayed the flow of information across the network about inventory, dispatch, and known market feedback of essential drugs. All the mentioned challenges have collectively given rise to the importance of protecting and enhancing the life science supply chains, in order to prepare them to be flexible enough to support a sudden surge in production to match the ongoing demands. All the crucial supply chain challenges can be managed through the use of next-gen technologies- like blockchain, to gain enhanced visibility and traceability so that the products or drugs can timely reach the end-users without any demand-supply gap. Using the Internet of Things (IoT), blockchain, etc. the manufacturers can gain better visibility into their supply chains. Therefore, aiding them to make vital business decisions. In addition, platforms like IoT and blockchain help life science sectors eliminate counterfeiting by entrusting clients’ customers and engaging their retailers efficiently.
Blockchain has the potential to build trust and create the right permissions for the sharing of data. Thus, allowing life science sectors to break through many of the crucial issues faced, by enabling better traceability. Life sciences companies can retrieve the information they want without disclosing commercially sensitive data.
Blockchain traceability allows you to track and trace information or products across a supply chain efficiently. Implementing blockchain-enabled traceability solutions within your life science can enhance transparency and visibility across the supply chain. Traditional traceability solutions, being centralized, are open to crises such as single point failure, drug counterfeits, data manipulations, etc. With blockchain, a distributed ledger technology uniquely used for sharing and reconciling information, the life science supply chain can easily tackle all the drawbacks of centralized traceability solutions. Blockchain traceability solutions and applications are already gaining the spotlight in different domains, especially supply chain management. Organizations across many industries have started integrating blockchain traceability solutions in their supply chain to enhance transparency via tracking and tracing all the events, facilitating faster and better cost-efficient delivery of medical products, and drugs, enhancing coordination between partners and aiding access to financing. Blockchain-enabled traceability solutions can go up to the extent where they can enhance the brand value and keep the brand reputation intact by detecting drug counterfeits and fraud. It empowers the end customer by giving them a detailed overview of the product’s origin and journey. For example, Traceability solutions help drug manufacturers monitor “to where the drugs are being delivered” while the companies and end customers can understand “where the products in their hands have come from”. This adds credibility factor to the brand instilling brand trust.
