Pharmaceutical Packaging

Improving the patient experience is at the top of the priority list for pharmaceutical packaging manufacturers today.

The patient experience is front and center in today’s pharmaceutical packaging market.

Recent trends in pharmaceutical packaging revolve mostly around how to improve the patient experience through avenues like medication adherence and integration within the larger healthcare ecosystem. There is also significant pressure being placed on packaging manufacturers to use environmentally-friendly materials, both from a sustainability and recyclability standpoint. 

While technology is making an impact in the pharmaceutical packaging industry, it’s mostly on the manufacturing side - like, for example, recent changes to pharmaceutical packaging serialization and barcode requirements implemented by the FDA. Some manufacturers are applying tech directly to the packaging itself to benefit the consumer; things like loud speakers within packaging to read instructions aloud to a patient, or a connected medication dispenser that shares data between the patient, doctor and pharmacist to improve adherence rates and health outcomes.

 

pepto-bismol-medicine-dosing-cap (002)OUR PHARMA HISTORY

NS is uniquely positioned to solve pharmaceutical packaging challenges.

NS has nearly 50 years of experience, much of it working on pharmaceutical packaging and drug delivery innovations. Did you know that NS designed and patented the first-ever dosage cap for Pepto Bismol®? That is just one example of extensive work done over the years with leading pharmaceutical companies like Procter & Gamble, Johnson & Johnson and Bayer.  

Our collaborative approach to packaging innovation allows us to understand each stakeholder’s unique goals and requirements. Nuanced details, like how the package stacks on a shelf, the location and ease-of-access to the bar code, and other logistics are often overlooked when work is done in a silo. We solve that challenge by keeping all diverse user needs in mind throughout the course of development.

NOTTINGHAM SPIRK: Return On Innovation

DESIGNING A $93M MEDICAL TECHNOLOGY: A BEHIND THE SCENES LOOK

While working a Case Western Reserve University, Yoram Rudy, PhD had the idea for a game-changing cardiac monitoring device—a vest filled with more than 200 sensors that could detect the heart’s electrical activity. While standard 12-lead EKGs had become the gold standard for detecting many heart problems, EKGs still can miss cardiac problems because they only probe electrical potential at a limited number of points on the body.
