Enhanced due diligence

Healthcare due diligence

Get essential due diligence reports to help expedite the sourcing and on-boarding of new suppliers whilst safeguarding your reputation and meeting your regulatory obligations.

Conducting detailed and holistic assessments of all risks before engaging a new supplier or third-party is critical, particularly when expanding into less familiar and higher-risk territories. 

Healthcare supply chains can be complex with tier-1, tier-2 and tier-3 suppliers, as well as third-party vendors and distributors located across the globe from the company’s headquarters. Where screening indicates heightened risk in these networks – or even potentially higher risk – companies and organizations should conduct enhanced due diligence (EDD). 

What is healthcare due diligence?

Healthcare, pharmaceutical and life sciences companies operate in a highly competitive and tightly regulated industry.  The often-long lead times and significant investment needed to bring products to market drives the need for high levels of security and discretion in the industry. 

Due diligence is an invaluable tool for the healthcare industry to aid decision-making when assessing the on-boarding of new third-parties and suppliers or when reviewing or renewing existing contracts and agreements - to uncover hidden risk and flag potential links to financial crime and corruption, particularly in high-risk countries.
