Description

Healthcare is a diverse industry that includes institutions and practitioners that provide services for the diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of injury, illness, disease, and other physical and mental impairments. There is a wide variety of specialties that focus on specific treatments. 
Healthcare is composed of primary, secondary, and tertiary care. Social and economic conditions largely affect access to health care as do the policies and management of services. For a healthcare system to function efficiently, necessary aspects include generous financing, a well-trained and well-paid workforce, credible information on which policies can be structured, and health facilities that are well-maintained and reliably managed. 
The manufacturing of the Pill Dispensers provides work, as we look to use 3D printing to make the base of the product, we would need a lot of engineers and factory workers to assemble the products. The product also provides economic growth of the healthcare industry as they save up to £300 million lost every year in the NHS.

Challenges

One of the main areas of focus for operations is cost control. Cost controls affect the levels and quality of services provided to clients. Inefficiently managed costs usurp budgets, limiting the technology and equipment that can be purchased and used to provide necessary services. Cost of control is a challenge as it will determine the success of the product in the market through the financial information gathered, which will then determine how well it impacts patients and the market itself.
