The Healthcare Supply Chain Podcast Series
offered through our Thought Leadership Initiative
Expanding our Thought Leadership series into podcasts with focus into the healthcare supply chain industry.
Continuing our webinar series, we strive to bring you current industry “hot topics,” while providing you the knowledge, tools and foresight to reduce expense budget items, increase pharmacy revenue and reduce risk of paying higher prices for drug shortages.
Rationalizing the Healthcare Supply Chain
This episode was recorded during a recent webinar. In this episode, listen to Dwight deVera, Founder and CEO at RxTransparent, and Andy Perry, CEO and Co-Founder at Curvo Labs discuss their partnership and how healthcare providers can benefit from their, and similar cooperation. Each of them talk about where the spend is in providing healthcare and how technologies developed for DSCSA can reduce those costs.
Excerpts from February 28 FDA Public Meeting
On February 28, 2018 Dwight deVera, Founder and CEO of RxTransparent, and Dr. Scott Gottlieb, Commissioner of the FDA addressed the audience at a publicly-held meeting about the Drug Supply Chain Security Act. Instead of our usual interview format, this episode offers a replay of their speeches. Dr. Gottlieb spoke about the priority of the DSCSA at the FDA while Dwight covered what he sees as the priorities of dispensers and providers in relation to the DSCSA.
Drug Supply Chain (DSCSA) on Blockchain
Join Dwight deVera and Bob Celeste from the Center For Supply Chain Studies, as they discuss utilizing blockchain technology for DSCSA. Blockchain is one of the hottest topics in technology today, but understanding how the technology will apply in healthcare is still very limited. This event provides a high-level overview of how blockchain will be applied within the US Drug Supply Chain, the possible configurations of Healthcare Supply Chains utilizing blockchain technology and how blockchain can serve as the foundation to enable new innovations in the Healthcare industry.
Bob Celeste and his team at The Center for Supply Chain Studies are currently conducting the following studies and welcome participants:
- DSCSA & Blockchain 2
- Blockchain for Cold Chain
- Global Pharma Track & Trace

The Center For Supply Chain Studies is a neutral, nonprofit exploration, and educational forum designed to assist the healthcare industry in its mission to improve efficiencies, increase productivity, and streamline compliance with the Drug Supply Chain Security Act (DSCSA).
The Internet of Things (IoT) and DSCSA
In this episode, Dwight deVera and Jim Sabogal, Senior Director for Healthcare and Life Sciences at T-Systems, talk about the future of Healthcare from a perspective of the use of IoT (the Internet of Things) technology with DSCSA. IoT is exciting technology because all of its potential has not even been thought of yet. But there are already very compelling reasons to utilize this new technology in the drug supply chain, as they’ll point out during the friendly discussion. Listen in on their conversation about how IoT can improve the supply chain process and even save lives.
