Healthcare labels. They don’t make the list when C-level executives meet to discuss cost controls. And, because of a spend that’s less significant than medical devices or personal protection equipment, healthcare labels often don’t get attention from the supply chain team. But, like their higher expenditure brethren, when managed effectively there are steps you can take to impact costs and ensure effective patient care.
When you don’t feel well, who wants to leave the comforts of their home to visit a doctor’s office? And, the convenience of consulting a healthcare professional from your home is one of the reasons telemedicine is a growing healthcare alternative to doctor visits. Although that trend is still emerging for veterinarians, pet owners value that same ease of access. So, if you offer that service today or plan to consider it in the future, connecting with the patient electronically isn’t the only consideration. There are medical record and medication labeling steps that remain an important part of the process.
