Abstract: This project aims to help the medical industry. The medical industry strives to improve the delivery of key device information through the package to patients Distributor and end users. To achieve this goal Indications For Use and user manuals have been major tools and are necessary components required in Medical Package according to Food and Drug Administration (FDA) standards. Historically there have been challenges caused by packaging information materials aspects such as manufacturing, transportation and translation. The need for extensive packaging and labelling has ultimately contributed to increased cost of manufacturing for devices. It is also important to know what information a customer needs and recognize that the safety of the consumer is of the utmost importance. The development and implementation of new technologies and procedures in a medical industry may be complicated and slow but it is a necessity to improve safety and provide maximum comfort to the end user. The existing supply chain for the pharmaceutical industry is obsolete and lacks clear visibility over the entire system. Moreover, the circulation of counterfeit medicine in the market has increased over the years. According to the WHO report, around 10.5% of the medicinal medicine in lower / middle income countries are fake and such medicine may pose serious threats to public health, sometimes leading to death. In this paper, we propose a QR Code -based model to track the movement of medicine from the industry to the users and to minimize the chances of a medicine being counter feit. Barcodes and Two Dimensional code have been used in the medical device industry for tracking purposes; however, the focus of this thesis was using QR codes in medical device package without IFU, user guides and manuals to enhance patient safety, reduce cost and enhance the breadth of information available to the ultimate users. Access to the information was achieved by just taking a picture or scanning the QR code which was printed on a medical device package. This thesis also assesses the feasibility of implementing the QR code technology on medical device package and a case study is conducted that elaborates on the cost analysis
