The Central Drugs Standard Control Organisation (CDSCO) in India has issued a draft notification that every active pharmaceutical drug must ship with a QR Code.
The QR Code should display all the essential details about the drug upon scanning.
The pharmaceutical industry can benefit from using QR Codes on prescription bottles since it conveys all the important information to consumers pre-purchase.
Creating QR Codes for pharmaceutical packaging takes less than a minute, with Beaconstac’s QR Code creator. Pharma brands can digitize information with no hassle to help ease consumers’ concerns and establish transparency.
#2 Show tutorial videos using QR Codes on pharmaceutical packaging
Apart from drugs with an API, having a QR Code on other medical instruments can also be life-altering. For diabetics who need to inject themselves with insulin, a proper tutorial video can make all the difference in the world. Pharma companies can place QR Codes on pharmaceutical packaging to direct users to such tutorial videos to reduce the learning curve. The same can be replicated when it comes to blood pressure monitors, glucometers or inhalers.
#3 Provide additional information via PDF QR Codes on prescription bottles
Along with letting consumers browse the website, QR Codes on prescription bottles can link to a PDF which eliminates the need for the medication package insert completely. Not only is this completely eco-friendly as it saves paper, but it is also useful for the consumer as they don’t have to hold onto the insert forever.
