The KPMG secure supply chain capabilities bring together blockchain-based accelerators that allow participants (patients, providers, suppliers, and regulators) to forecast demand, locate specific quantities of physical goods, and take preventative actions against shortages. These capabilities facilitate rapid deployment of a shared, secure view of data related to the movement of goods through the supply chain to enhance transparency and help reduce the risk of illegitimate products and bad actors.

Blockchain is designed to provide the transparent, connective tissue among the events related to the movement of a product, such that any participant in a supply chain can trust the quality of the product, be assured that customers are getting what they ordered, and have confidence that what arrives is authentic.
