How can pre-filled syringes help Compounding Centers (503b) optimize drug preparation and elevate Hospital efficiencies?

According to an evaluation of the WHO, medication errors cause at least one death every day and injure approximately 1.3 million people annually in the US alone.  Apart from harming patients, medication errors also drive up the costs for the health care system. Adverse drug events in US community hospitals cost more than 3,000 USD per incident on average and lead to a median increase of hospital length of stay of 3.1 days. On the other hand, drug shortages may adversely affect patient care by compromising or delaying medical procedures. High quality pre-filled syringes make the drug administration process much faster, easier and safer.

In this joint session with AST, leader in aseptic manufacturing processes, we will break down the daunting challenge of selecting the right pre-fillable syringe and how to process it on an automated, high speed filling line, contributing thus to reduce drug shortages and save costs for hospitals and the health care system.
