The medical and health industry face challenges such as changing patient needs, competition, supply chain disruptions, rising costs, regulations, and technology’s impact, which must be faced effectively in order to remain successful.
The medical and health industry is one of the most critical sectors, facing numerous daily challenges that demand quick and effective solutions. The industry is continuously evolving, and new challenges arise as a result of emerging trends and shifting consumer demands. One of the main challenges in the medical industry is keeping up with the latest technology and medical research to ensure patients receive the best possible treatment.
Moreover, the industry is grappling with supply chain disruptions and rising costs of medical supplies and equipment, which puts a strain on healthcare providers and affects the quality of patient care. Regulations also pose significant challenges, as compliance with new rules and guidelines can be complex and time-consuming.
Another critical issue the medical industry faces is an aging population and an increase in chronic diseases, which leads to a higher demand for healthcare services. Addressing these issues requires not only more healthcare providers but also a more efficient healthcare system that can cater to the growing needs of the population.
Furthermore, the global pandemic has exacerbated existing challenges in the healthcare industry, including shortages of medical equipment, increased patient demand, and a shortage of healthcare workers. As a result, healthcare providers need to be agile and adaptable to meet the needs of the population during the pandemic.

Stratega took part in the consultancy activities for a French newsprint paper manufacturer facing increased demand and operational uncertainties leading to potential losses and inefficiencies. Within a tight timeframe of less than a week, Stratega identified four key areas for improvement. As a result, the printing house achieved a remarkable 20% reduction in operational costs through improved efficiency and supply management.
The implementation of the Operational Excellence methodology led to a 30% increase in NOP (from -10% to +20%) and a significant improvement in market share due to better plant utilization and improved business profitability. The results were confirmed in the years following Stratega's intervention. The work done has created a solid foundation of processes and technologies, durable and with great future potential.
Through our Asset Care program and our work with the team, the company was able to improve line availability, OEE and OTIF of products, reduce maintenance costs, and ensure profit. Our work has also created a culture of failure prevention and enabled them to better manage plants, ensuring customer satisfaction and company growth.
Stratega has helped implement a successful TPM program, customizing the approach based on the specific particularities and challenges of their organization. The turning point of the project was to complement the training material, which in itself was very comprehensive, with an on-demand coaching activity. Thanks to this, the result was a 20:1 ROI in just 9 months, with a target audience of 1750 people.
