On today’s episode, Stacey Bruzzese talks to Dr. Tim Sandle, the Head of Microbiology and Sterility Assurance at Bio Products Laboratory Limited.

Stacey and Tim cover a variety of topics:

  • For pharma manufactures, how does fewer employees, smaller inventory, less space and reduced time impact patient safety?
  • What type of supplier oversite is necessary?
  • As supply chains become more and more digital, how does IoT impact processes and programs controlling quality?
  • How do Big Data and Cloud Computing relate to patient safety, accessibility and affordability?
  • What does Dr Sandle see as the next major shift in supply chain migration?
