Author : Vinaytosh Mishra
Abstract :
Diabetes is a major health challenge in South East Asia. The disease management require wide spectrum of medicine including oral medicine, insulin and antibiotics; which makes the supply chain complex. The medicine supply chain faces diverse risk in geographically diverse country like India. The disruption due to these risks can be costly; and hospitals aim to minimise these risks. For effective management of these risks, hospitals need a comprehensive method to quantify all of their significant supply chain risks. We worked with a speciality hospital in diabetes-care to map their supply chain for a few representative medicines. The disruption risks accounted in the study are due to supplier bankruptcy, natural disasters and geopolitical events. The study develops, a fuzzy model for risk assessment for the diabetes clinic. The quantification of value- at- risk of a hospital in its supply chain gave them a clearer picture of where hospital needs to focus risk management efforts.

Despite this, the cluster faces the challenges like dearth of technological development, and poor usage of information & communication technology. (The Economic Times, June 17, 2018). Besides, there are a number of problems at the grass-root level like improvements required in processes, infrastructure and also development measures for developing the skills of the artisans (Sachan et al. 2013). If the predictable threats can be taken care of timely, art metal-ware sector can give a boost to the economy.
