Working Toward Universal Connectivity in Drug Delivery

HealthPrize Technologies is teaming up again with West Pharmaceutical Services, Inc., to incorporate additional features into the system they developed a few years ago aimed at rewarding patient behavior that complied with their injectable drug regimen.
