UPS Survey: Time to act on untapped opportunities in healthcare industry
An environment of increasing risks, complex regulations and continuing cost pressures is impeding healthcare executives from moving quickly to seize untapped industry opportunities, according to the 7th annual UPS "Pain in the (Supply) Chain" survey. Globally, healthcare executives are planning for strategic partnerships and technology investment to mitigate risks and capitalize on growth opportunities.
The most significant factors contributing to uncertainty in the healthcare supply chain are more stringent regulations and increased product protection challenges. For the third consecutive year, regulatory compliance is the top supply chain pain point (UPS Press Release, 23 September 2014).
