By Pharma Tech Outlook | Thursday, October 29, 2020

Digital transformation has spread in all industries and what might have seemed like a niche to even the top CIOs in the leading corporates a decade ago is now a living reality.

FREMONT, CA: With IoT, 5G, AI, and development movements like no-code and low code, time-consuming, error-prone, and difficult to manage, the tasks and processes are being streamlined and giving an in-depth view of the business data; further allowing the industries to mold their future.

These development methodologies allow the line of business leaders, CIOs, project managers, consultants to resolve the cross-industry problems and develop a better future than the present.

This digitalization trend is significantly changing the healthcare industry, and the pharma industry as a core part is no exception to this. The perfect combination of the said technologies allows drastic changes in the business models and global manufacturing operations. With the increased integration level, automation, and real-time connectivity, medicine manufacturing and packaging will be transparent and distributed in a more controlled manner, given the regulatory constraints and needs.

Here are three apps that one must-have in the pharmaceutical industry

1. Paper-based manuals change every day as new studies are published, which means that they must be updated regularly. Having to consult these reference books for data can be a real pain, especially if one is in the middle of the meeting away from medical resources. Self Service apps consult any medical reference book in the digital format anytime, anywhere, using smartphones or tablets. The content can be immediately updated as the new information becomes available.

2. Accounting apps: While the above apps have focused on Employee support, few operational apps for the accounts and finance team can be used. From capturing bills and uploading to a core database, a billing app maintains smart reports, makes informed decisions, and scan barcodes, salts, brand name, etc. Accept payments through numerous modes from multiple customers, send for approvals, and avoid the paperwork or the email trails.

3. Track drug shipments, inventory, and replacements with a drug inventory management app. It allows high-level tracking of inventory, eliminating paper and human errors, therefore increasing the services' efficiency. Handle goods received, acknowledge the shipments, and request resupply in a few taps. The app may queue a lack of inventory to stop dropping below the predefined threshold and decreasing the scope of insufficient drug supply. The app can additionally assist in expiry tracking of inventory.
