In recent years, there’s been a rise in direct-to-patient care, with more North Americans receiving medical care and treatment at home. This also increased the need for medical devices and equipment to be shipped to hospitals, clinics and directly to patient’s homes. Home-based care can range in purpose from drawing blood and checking vitals, to more acute treatments for illnesses such as cancer and diabetes.
