Innovation + healthcare costs space
Innovation is the theme for Pharmapack keynote presentation
Feature Image 3 When considering innovation in drug packaging, Patrice Noailles, president of Seillans Investissement, France, said that you must first consider that drugs are the most efficient way of reducing healthcare costs. It is far less expensive to vaccinate against an illness than it is to treat the illness. So, it's important for drugs, drug delivery and drug packaging to continue to be innovative to drive costs down.
