The industry is quickly learning how to deploy this relatively new medium to deal with difficulties and improve workflows for doctors and patients alike.

The growing utilisation of mobiles is inevitable. Current estimates show that there are 3.8 billion mobile device owners, which is a penetration rate of 51% globally – though there are obviously differences from country to country. In Spain, for instance, 87% of the population possesses a mobile device, while only 52% of people living in India own one.

Choosing the Right CMO for HPAPI Manufacturing

AMRI

Over the past few years a steady stream of contract manufacturing organizations (CMO) have added high potency active pharmaceutical ingredient (HPAPI) production capacity.
