Blockchain 4 for the Pharma Supply Chain

The Pharma Supply BLOCK Chain Forum, is an in-depth, one-day educational program taking the discussion of blockchain adoption to the next level. We are no longer talking what is blockchain technology; but rather why now and how to make it happen. Attendees will hear from a blended group of tech innovators, regulatory leaders, industry experts, academic researchers and professionals from outside the industry presenting on supply chain usage study progress.

Practical Learning Topics Include:

  • Optimization of the drug supply chain from production to patient
  • Restoration of integrity to the supply chain
  • Maximizing the revenue potential from the data available on the blockchain
  • Understanding the different yet collaborative nature of emerging technologies (IoT, AI, Blockchain, DLTs and more) to optimize the supply chain
  • The role of digital identity and how it intersects with the pharma supply chain
