Efficiency is a valuable commodity at WDSrx as we strive to streamline the supply chain between treatments and patients. Our drive for greater efficiency is fueled by identifying areas where we can reduce waste. In the language of continuous improvement, waste is referred to as the Japanese word “muda.” Sustainability initiatives take waste out of the business process and support our efficiency goals. Currently WDSrx is working to eliminate single-use plastics with the installation of water stations in our facilities and providing employees with reusable bottles. We’re keeping everyone hydrated with fewer consequences for our fragile environment.
The active maintenance of licenses, certifications, registrations and authorizations is a crucial element differentiating regulatory compliance at reputable pharmaceutical logistics services providers.
With patient health in the balance, multiple levels of government and other industry authorities require strict adherence to regulations, standards and practices. To inform interested parties about maintaining compliance standards, we produced a video series available on our YouTube channel revealing details about government licenses and registrations, certifications from industry authorities, controlled substance ordering and monitoring and adherence to ISO, PDMA and HIPAA guidelines.
Growing at approximately 20% each year, the WDSrx website has evolved since it was launched in 2016. Things are about to change again. The WDSrx marketing team is collaborating with our Boca Raton-based digital agency MDG to create a new online presence for our brand. The process began a few months ago. Planning involves developing new content, analyzing the strengths and weaknesses of the current site, establishing a graphic template, setting priorities for the user interface and assuring that the finished product achieves our goals including increased leads and conversions. The finished product will debut in the fourth quarter of this year.
Under normal circumstances, WDSrx locations welcome a steady stream of pre-approved visitors for meetings and facility audits. The lockdowns around the country ended our practice of on-site meetings. Although clients and regulatory authorities are postponing audits until a later date, the WDSrx Quality Assurance team also conducted a virtual audit for a client. With videoconferencing, Quality issues were discussed in a conference room. As part of the agenda, the client was guided through the facility to view and comment on various areas of the warehouse. Although virtual tours do not replace in-person audits, they answer specific questions and advance the overall audit process to a successful conclusion.
