The evolving healthcare system requires everyone to break down silos and build more integrated solutions. World Congress’ Pharma4 meetings bring together crucial yet complementary functions: specialty network design, supply chain strategy, patient services and hubs, and compliance. It’s a wonderful opportunity for the industry to reflect on how we can all serve patients more effectively and efficiently. I expect this multi-faceted event to trigger many new crossfunctional conversations and collaborations.
