Training Devices & Patient Education Play A Crucial Role in The Self-Injection Drug Delivery Market

The biopharmaceutical industry has experienced incredible exponential growth in recent decades. Annual revenues have increased from US$4.4 billion (£3.4 billion) in 1990 to $275 billion (£213 billion) in 2018 (a 6,250% increase) and now represent more than 25% of the total pharmaceutical market.1 A primary driver of this rapid expansion is the pioneering pursuit [...]

Pharma’s Role in The Global Environmental Sustainability Movement

Environmental sustainability is a broad, expansive concept that can apply to everything from agriculture and manufacturing to building design. But how is it defined? The US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) defines sustainability based on an overarching principle: “Everything that we need for our survival and well-being depends, either directly or indirectly, on our natural [...]

Applying Connectivity to Enhance the Training Standard of Care for Self-Injection

The Internet of Things (IoT) and connected devices have transformed our everyday lives, from web-connected televisions and smart kitchen appliances to fitness trackers and home security systems. Similarly, connected medical devices are poised to revolutionise healthcare and drug delivery. The medical technology industry designs and manufactures more than 500,000 different types of medical devices [...]

Supporting Improved Patient Onboarding and Adherence With Training Solutions

With more biologics and drug delivery device options entering the market in recent years, pharma companies can decide whether it would be easier for patients to self-inject with an autoinjector or prefilled syringe, depending on drug viscosity and other factors. Some biologics also offer patients and their healthcare providers (HCPs) the ability to choose [...]

The Importance of Training and Onboarding for Intranasal Rescue Therapies

Nasal drug repurposing has seen a real resurgence recently, driven by several factors. From an economic perspective, partners benefit from reduced development costs, intellectual property (IP) creation, increased market share and extended lifecycle. The regulatory pathways, such as the US 505(b)2, sometimes complemented by orphan drug designation, are faster and less complex. It may [...]

Enhancing the Patient Experience for Self-Injection Systems Through Demonstration Devices

Diagnoses of chronic illnesses such as rheumatoid arthritis (RA), Crohn’s disease and osteoporosis are expected to skyrocket in the coming decade, resulting in growing use of patient-centric drug delivery devices – including autoinjectors, prefilled syringes with safety features, and on-body and respiratory devices. Because of the complexity of injectable treatment regimens, onboarding aids – [...]

Training Patients in The Use of Wearable Injectors

Millions of patients worldwide living with rare, debilitating conditions are benefiting from developments in biopharmaceuticals and complex chemical entities as well as novel approaches to drug delivery. For example, many therapeutics administered in a subcutaneous injection are suitable for at-home administration by patients themselves, rather than in a healthcare facility. This includes wearable injection [...]

Training Devices Increase Patient Engagement and Adherence – Creating Better Outcomes

Across the US, half of all adults live with a chronic disease – and many of them are prescribed a self-injectable therapy to help manage their condition. As the patient population and demand for self-injection treatments continue to grow, so will the number of patients being introduced to self-injection drug delivery devices. This growing [...]

Best Practices and Considerations in Developing Effecting Training Devices for the Pulmonary Healthcare Market

Over the years, many industry stakeholders and pharmaceutical manufacturers have come to realize the importance of patient training and the role it has on promoting healthy outcomes and effective disease management. Read full article >

Improving Patients’ Self-Injection Experience

The rapid advancement of biologic therapies has created numerous opportunities for improving patient self injection. As a result, every year, more patients are being introduced to both established and new devices for home treatment. However, studies have shown some patients find it hard to follow the required steps outlined in instructions for use (IFU) documents [...]
