Modernizing the Supply Chain in Healthcare and Life Sciences

With Slalom and Databricks

The Healthcare Supply Chain: A Case for Change

Perhaps more so than in other industries, COVID-19 upended the historical dynamics of supply and demand in healthcare. We have witnessed unmanageable spikes in ICU bed demand, nursing shortages and massive gaps in COVID-19 diagnostic testing (due to both the tests themselves, as well as testing capacity). At the same time, the life sciences industry has grappled with the challenges of an inadequate cold chain that is ill-equipped for mass vaccine distribution, not to mention unprecedented spikes in demand for products like Tylenol.

Over the last two years, Slalom and Databricks worked together to help a Fortune 100 Life Sciences Company adopt the lakehouse as an accelerator for imagining a new modern supply chain, focusing on analytics.

In this eBook, you will learn:

  • Problems that this life sciences company faced
  • Why the lakehouse was their best choice
  • Specific use cases and the results achieved
