The role that nanoparticles play in the rapidly developing field of ‘NanoMedicine’ has been discussed previously in Chapter 5. In this Chapter, we review the specificmechanisms by which such nanoparticles are designed and formulated and in which NTA has had a significant part to play. Thus, Villaverde (2011) reviewed the emergence of nanoparticles in translational science and medicine and Banerjee et al. (2010) had focused on the role and biomedical applications that magnetic nanoparticles play in that nanomedicine. Similarly, the impact and biomedical applications of a different specific subset of nanoparticles, nanostructured carbiobeads, has also been reviewed (Stanishevsky et al., 2011).

Every member of the health care team shares a common goal of optimizing patient outcomes. Yet each specialty and position of the healthcare team has a unique workflow facilitated by various tools, from an operative report to a progress note. In this regard the pharmacist plays a pivotal function in medication management and requires documentation specific to that role. The Pharmacist eCare Plan (PeCP) allows for an interoperable note to be used in the pharmacy to assist in the exchange of patient information, including active medication list, laboratory results, and payer information. To allow for this, a new type of clinical document architecture for the PeCP was created and standardized for use across pharmacies.

The worry was that pharmaceutical companies wouldn't be able to produce enough of their drugs for patients.
