By Angela Forsyth

No one ever wants to have supply issues, especially a biopharmaceutical company whose products can sometimes make a difference between life and death.  AbbVie knows this first-hand as it makes it a priority to ensure its drugs are always available to patients worldwide.

By Staci Davidson, Senior Editor at Knighthouse Publishing

Few people look forward to going to a hospital for a procedure or visiting a doctor for a checkup. Medical care is critical, but can be daunting to many patients. Vibra Healthcare understands this, and with its objective of “getting you back to better,” wants patients to feel comfortable in its care while they are at one of its facilities. The company aims to achieve this by creating a seamless continuum for patients and physicians, ensuring everyone gets the best care possible. The supply chain plays a critical role in this objective.
