Talking Travel

Patient Engagement Demands

Two major factors have been, and continue to be, prime movers in the area of patient engagement: the ever- and exponentially increasing competition for eligible and interested patients and the burgeoning and rapidly evolving internet-driven service industry, which is often experienced by users through the utilisation of mobile device applications.

Superior retention of those using the service in this study scenario makes sense. When mobility problems and significant distances from the sites are concerning, one would expect a professional travel assistance programme to remove a major barrier to participation.

Tightening Your Supply Chain Against Counterfeits

World Courier

As today’s global pharmaceutical supply chain grows increasingly longer and more complex, each link provides added opportunity for counterfeiters. While pending regulatory changes promise to tighten the supply chain with respect to production and distribution entities and new packaging technologies will make the identification of counterfeit products easier, the logistics of global distribution remains a weak link.
