Today’s pharmaceutical industry finds itself at a crossroads as it faces important structural changes, be it technological (higher R&D costs), regulatory (tightening regulatory environment, barriers to reimbursement), societal (increased life expectancy, insolvent health system), or commercial (increase in generics, market globalization, counterfeit).
Pharmaceutical and healthcare firms are thus entering a decisive phase where their ability to adapt marks the key to success.
Hospitals, clinics, and other health centers have equally faced a paradigm shift in both external and internal organization. Most struggle increasingly with both management and the rationalization of financial resources.
Zalis works alongside pharmaceutical and healthcare firms to adapt their business models to today’s industry environment. We further deploy our managerial and financial reorganization experts to optimise the organisation of health centers.
Examples of accomplished missions
A group of clinics facing financial distress: rescuing a group from liquidity crisis
A European bank acting as the main creditor for a group of clinics called upon Zalis to determine if the financial situation of their client was irremediably compromised or if solutions were possible. A flash audit was performed by our experts, after which point we were put in charge of guiding the group out of bankruptcy. Within a month, Zalis on the one hand accompanied the group to recovery, and on the other helped the bank to dispose of part of the group’s assets.
A leading public health industry player guided through its transport and logistics challenges
The company, which runs a network of radiopharmaceutical preparation production sites, asked Zalis to study its delivery logistics. Our analysis isolated the relevant variables to then suggest an action plan to optimize logistic costs for the company, covering three principle axes :
- Flow optimization for finished product distribution;
- Flow optimization for the return of empty boxes and shafts;
- Potential avenues of negotiation with regular suppliers.
Zalis was later mandated to accompany this client in:
- Reducing its supplier costs for deliveries to the customers;
- Optimising the delivery schedules;
- Implementing the central management of logistics planning.
