Integrating RFID technology into existing pharmaceutical production lines calls for a thorough understanding of process requirements. In general, the complexity of national policies is not stopping the broad adoption of auto ID technologies in public and private healthcare systems.

How can intelligence be embedded in pharmaceutical processes and products while preserving patient safety?
