AI is here to stay, and the Covid-19 pandemic accelerated the adoption of AI in healthcare. Organizations are increasingly using AI to help reduce costs and enhance customer experience, including the world of supply chain.

Medical device companies are under pressure to do more with less.
The healthcare system is focused on patient-centricity, which means having to sustain a high quality of service. Additionally, market competition between device companies is fierce, there are more regulations than years prior, and reimbursements continue to drop.
