Abstract
The pharma industry is one of the main enterprises and effective supply chain is required for
taking care of the demand of the clients or the patients. The efficiency rate and the patient
satisfaction needs to be 100% as it straightforwardly impacts the soundness of the patients.
As a result quality of service plays an important role in the pharmaceutical supply chain. The
traditional procurement supply chain in hospitals lacks in response time, delivery time, loss
of data, operational expenses etc. In this scenario an attempt is made to improve the
procurement process in hospitals for better service to the patients. The cloud based
intelligent system has proved to be useful in automobile industry, service industry etc. In this
article, factor analysis to identify the factors which affect the efficiency in the whole supply
chain process if cloud based intelligent system is adapted and model test using multiple
regression analysis is estimated to further understand the advantage of adoption of cloud
based intelligent system in order to find a way to improve the efficiency in procurement
process of medicinal items in hospitals.

Key words: Supply Chain, Patient Satisfaction, Operational Expenses, Procurement Process, Intelligent System.
