Usability of vaccines and medicines that need to be kept in a temperature-monitored environment is a major factor when arranging for delivering these to their destination. However, many healthcare organizations face visibility issues, specifically in terms of quick access to centralized, consumable, and real-time data of their essential medicinal supplies and its location while in transit. This makes it difficult for healthcare officials at the destination to detect the usability of vaccines that need to be in a temperature-monitored environment.
Quick access to real-time location of these shipments-in-transit is equally important, especially so when delivering to remote places. A lack of automation in the healthcare cold chain process not only leads to ambiguity regarding usability of essential medicinal supplies but also increases overhead expenses for the organisations.
