Seeloz Inc. today announced the Supply Chain Automation for Public Health (SCAPH) initiative to partner with countries managing public healthcare systems. Leveraging Artificial Intelligence (AI), SCAPH will help partnering countries improve the operational efficiency of their public healthcare supply chains and accelerate the fulfilment of the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals (UNSDGs). Building on its Supply Chain Automation Suite (SCAS), a Vertical AI solution to minimize waste and inefficiencies across the food and healthcare supply chains, SCAPH allows countries to minimize expirations, overstock, stockouts and cross-warehouse movements across their public healthcare supply chains.
The forecasted SCAPH benefits for partnering countries are numerous and they include tangible tracking and reporting of UNSDG fulfillment, optimal patient care with minimized budgets, and the substantial reduction of all forms of supply chain inefficiencies from supply expirations, overstock, stockouts and logistics costs.
The Sustainable Development Goals are part of the UN’s 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and the 17 SDGs, adopted by leaders from all over the world, is a guide to help countries build a better future for all. With Seeloz’s new initiative, AI and Automation will assist partnering countries to effectively excel in, at least, 3 of the 17 SDGs -
- SDG 3: Health and Well-being
- SDG 9: Industry, Innovation, and Infrastructure and
- SDG 12: Responsible Consumption and Production.
The Importance of AI
“The importance of this announcement cannot be understated. Currently, 30% of what the world produces from food and medical supply goes to waste. A somber statistic and a monumental issue that needs to be solved if countries are to achieve the SDGs. At Seeloz, we believe AI can indeed save the world by substantially minimizing this waste. One of the fastest paths to make this a reality is to improve the efficiency of public healthcare supply chains around the world.” - Dr. Mohamed Aly, Founder and CEO of Seeloz Inc.
"AI-driven technology is redefining the boundaries between the digital and physical spaces. Data was once static and boring, but today with Machine Learning, things are getting more exciting and dynamic. Malaysia is excited and committed to adopt AI to revamp the operational efficiency of the public healthcare system and positively impact millions of lives, in line with Malaysia’s commitment to UNSDGs.” - Dr. Dzulkefly Ahmad, Minister of Health, Malaysia
Within each partnering country, the SCAPH adoption typically involves a gradual implementation across the country’s different regions, municipalities, and cities by injecting procurement and inventory management AI-driven automation into the healthcare supply distribution centers, hospital warehouses, and even across the departments and sub stores of each hospital.
