The Automated Monitoring of Pharmaceutical and Healthcare Shipments and Delivery: Addressing Challenges, Creating Opportunities

In today’s fast-paced healthcare landscape, the automated monitoring of Pharmaceutical and Healthcare Shipments and Delivery is crucial.
Imagine this scenario: A patient urgently requires a life-saving medication. However, due to logistical mishaps or late-stage changes, the medication arrives late or, worse, in the wrong place. The consequences could be catastrophic. 
Ensuring the timely and efficient delivery of life-saving medications is paramount. Challenges in logistics and supply chain management can lead to devastating consequences if not addressed effectively. 

The Rise of Automated Data Monitoring in Pharma Supply Chain Logistics

Checking and maintaining ideal environmental conditions such as temperature, humidity, shock, and tilt is becoming critical, especially for pharmaceutical, and healthcare.  That is why the Cold Chain Logistics industry is rapidly embracing a more data-driven monitoring approach. Everyone is aiming for active, automated, and accurate data!
With regulatory authorities demanding top-quality and dependable products, businesses are turning to innovative solutions to streamline their operations. By using efficient data monitoring to comply with regulations, businesses across any sector, can potentially save thousands of dollars annually.

Hive-Zox: A Pioneer in Real-Time Monitoring  

Hive-Zox has been at the forefront of this automation revolution with its cMaaS (connected Monitoring as a Service) proprietary solution. Products like the Hive Platform, Real-time IoT devices, and Active Trackers provide accurate and real-time data monitoring during shipments.  Hive-Zox’s products can be easily set up, programmed, and tailored to specific shipments on-demand. Professionals can track and manage real-time data in one centralized platform as well as easily integrated to the client’s existing platform, where all the up-to-date information on their shipments resides. 

The ConnectedLabel: A Cost-Effective Automated Monitoring Solution  of Pharmaceutical and Healthcare Shipments and Delivery

In addition to its core products, Hive-Zox’s ConnectedLabel was launched last year at LogiPharma in Lyon. The company recognized the need to replace outdated USB Dataloggers and bridge the divide between passive and real-time data tracking. USB loggers had become obsolete, as they required waiting for results due to the need for manual intervention. The goal was to provide a more agile and cost-effective solution. A quicker temperature report for quality assurance.  

Hive-Zox’s brilliant R&D and Firmware teams restlessly worked on creating a device simpler and less expensive than IoT devices. The resulting ConnectedLabel is compact, about the size of a business card, making it easily deployable in boxes or on pallets.  

The development of the ConnectedLabel was the outcome of rigorous testing and valuable client feedback, resulting in a user-friendly single-use application suitable for various business scenarios within pharmaceuticals. This would have benefited both the supplier all the way to the patient.  

This innovation was believed to revolutionize supply chain management and risk mitigation. And since its official launch, the response to the ConnectedLabel has been phenomenal!
