9. Sanofi: The arrival of the ‘haute couture’ supply chain
Sanofi is a one-of-a-kind pharmaceutical company for the modern age. Self-described as ‘pushing the frontiers of science’ and ‘chasing miracles’, the 100,000-plus employee company delivers ‘life-changing treatments and life-saving vaccines’ to patients around the globe.
Arnaud Dourlens believes that the clinical trial supply chain can be a source of value for patients and the healthcare sector.
“When a patient is suffering from a disease, they are in a tough situation, and clinical trials are an option of care for them,” explains Dourlens.
Behind the clinical trial, there are a lot of activities that happen around defining a protocol, defining the way in which the study will be carried out and the way that the data will be managed.
Yet the treatment that the patients will get – when they receive a box of drugs or a vaccine designed to either save or vastly improve their life – is what the patients will see from Sanofi. It’s Dourlens’ job to get the drug to the patient on time, whatever the situation.
