Health, Medical, Dental and Veterinary Distribution

Solutions To Improve Healthcare Distribution

Hospitals, healthcare providers and the patients they serve depend on efficient, accurate supply chain and distribution systems to rein in costs while ensuring patient safety and quality. New product tracking regulations in many countries are affecting all segments of the medical supply chain – adding costly new requirements.

For years, Lucas has worked with industry-leading medical, dental, pharmaceutical and veterinary distributors, IDNs, and health product manufacturers to improve DC efficiency and accuracy. In addition, we have years of experience addressing the changing global patchwork of track and trace measures for pharmaceuticals and other healthcare products.
