Panel – Closed loop medication up to point-of-care scanning

This has been an important issue for Teva since the 1980s. At that time, Teva had in their range a hospital packaging where a semi-permanent sticker with product information could be used to stick to the patent file after administration. This century that was been transformed into a JFK barcode in collaboration with the hospitals so that electronic control was possible.

In recent years, I, as Manager Commercial Operations Teva NL have been focused on converting the current JFK barcode to the GS1 standard, in parallel with the adaptation of the various hospital automation systems so that after scanning product identification will be possible.
