The COVID-19 pandemic put a giant spotlight on the importance of supply chain visibility in the health care industry. And many companies are investing in better technologies to improve visibility in their supply chains. 

The goal is to make these supply chains more resilient and efficient. Combining more complete information about the supply chain with innovative technologies, such as artificial intelligence, offers even more opportunities to improve the supply chain.
