When the COVID-19 pandemic began – all hands were on deck to deal with the health crisis. This meant that many non-urgent healthcare services took the back-seat.
Quite a few clinics started offering virtual consultations for non-urgent care.
However, now that the economy is opening back up and physical distancing rules are easing, many medical facilities are starting in-person consultations for long-term issues, routine problems, and minor ailments.
Many healthcare organizations, that were not on the frontlines are now reopening and may have to deal with pent-up demand from the previous months. These include fertility clinics, dental offices, chiropractor and wellness centres, etc.
If you fall in this category, you will have to factor in the need to have adequate stocks of PPE and specialized equipment to ensure the safety of your patients and medical staff.
Similar is the case with pharmaceutical companies.
Many pharmaceutical companies struggled during the early onset of the pandemic as they faced production and supply chain disruptions.
This is why it is critical for pharmaceutical companies to review their supply chains and ensure that their products reach pharmacies and medical facilities in a timely manner. There is also an added concern of ensuring the products are effectively stocked and labelled.
So, what’s next?
Well, the pandemic has changed customer behaviours, impacted demand for medical services, and most importantly uncovered inadequacies in current processes.
