HCPC Europe | November 2010

MWV Healthcare’s MedEasy™ is the Winner of HCPC Europe Compliance Packaging Award 2010

At the HCPC Europe’s conference 2010 about compliance enhanced packaging, which took place in London on November 3rd and 4th, the role of packaging in the context of patient adherence was discussed by an international forum of experts. Innovative packaging solutions with elements to help patients to take their medication as prescribed were presented and the annual HCPC Europe Compliance Pack Award was given to a pack that, according to the jury, offered the most comprehensive support.

Out of a large number of entries the jury nominated three outstanding packaging solutions for the award:

AmerisourceBergen Packaging Group/Brecon Pharmaceuticals’ IntuiPac, was designed to facilitate patient medication adherence through ease of dispensing, discreet portability, and maximum patient convenience while providing the highest level of child resistance. Product construction creates a simple push-through dispensing mechanism with inherent tear resistance, while providing an eco-friendly solution with aquaeous based heat seal coatings on a paper based structure.

Carl Edelmann/Uhlmann Pac-Systemes’ Packed2Protect, complies with the resistance requirements stipulated by the PPA/16GTR 1700.20 and has passed in the child-resistance test conducted according to this standard while offering at the same time a high level of convenience and easy access to the elderly. The patient information leaflet, which often is the cause of problems in following regimen is packed in a way that it is kept always available for later reference if required, while assuring the maximum ease of opening and reclosing of the pack.
