Connecting Home-Based Drug Delivery

Hospitals and care facilities play an integral role in the healthcare system, with care teams working tirelessly to treat those in need of medical attention. From acute injuries and chronic diseases, to mental health issues, these facilities endeavour to equip themselves with the technologies, tools, and well-trained medical staff essential to providing optimum care.

While we like to think of hospitals as safe havens for patients, the opposite is often the case. This is due to the spread of viruses and hospital-acquired infections impacting patients, the likelihood of which increases the longer they remain in hospital. For example, a hospital stay carries a 5.5% risk of an adverse drug reaction and a 17.6% risk of infection, with each additional night in hospital increasing the risk by 0.5% for adverse drug reactions and 1.6% for infections (1).

Of course, there are steps that medical practitioners and care facility staff can take to mitigate the risk of infection, including diligent hand washing, use of gloves, masks, and protective clothing, and following hospital guidelines when dealing with contaminated items. Nevertheless, hospitals and care facilities often serve as breeding grounds for infection and disease, which proves to be costly for both 48 Igal Shany at Eitan Group providers and patients.

This has become particularly relevant in the COVID-19 era in which we find ourselves.

A Rules Based Approach to Labelling and Artwork Management

Kallik

Many organisations today are experiencing unprecedented demands from regulatory authorities and consumers alike for product labelling to be made clearer and more informative. Forthcoming regulations (including the new EU MDR regulations coming into force May 2020) also require that labelling content to be published electronically in addition to print. As companies seek to continuously differentiate themselves in established markets as well as gain entry into new territories, the increase in both volume and complexity of product and market variations will have a direct impact on labelling.
