Mapping The Healthcare Of The Future
The global healthcare scene is projected to be worth US$10 trillion by 2022. We take a look at how Internet of Things and real-time data are transforming the healthcare supply chain.

All three apps live inside our phones and reflect a real-time view of the world around us. Yet today’s digital connections are also preparing us to map much, much more.
Hyper-precise technology is charting a new journey in healthcare
Using this data, pharmaceutical companies can now map critical information such as location, light exposure, humidity, barometric pressure and shock. They can also ensure the integrity and security of temperature, one of the most pressing industry challenges.
And while visibility and control are important in most industry supply chains, they’re absolutely vital for healthcare. From biologic manufactured items to pharmaceuticals, the items the healthcare industry ships are sensitive, critical and difficult to replace.
Tiny sensing devices such as SenseAware® powered by FedEx are just one example of hyper-precise technology charting a new journey for healthcare, as it moves ever steadily from a post-dated temperature tracking model to a live- tracking model.
These wireless sensors make it possible to view and monitor the temperature of a product anywhere in the world, making the entire journey of vital healthcare products ever smarter, more connected, accessible and compliant.
It’s just one way digital is transforming the business of healthcare, and reinventing how healthcare as we know it is delivered. For more insights on how the APAC pharma industry is transforming, stay tuned to our LinkedIn page here.
