Our Services

Uniquely suited to assist global pharmaceutical, biotechnology, and healthcare technology companies in evaluating the safety of their products.

Contact Us

Med-ERRS is dedicated to serving the pharmaceutical industry around the world to ensure medication safety during the naming, packaging, label design and evaluation process. Throughout the United States, Europe, Canada, Asia and South America, we provide services that span a product’s lifecycle, from pre-marketing assessments at an early phase of development through post-marketing evaluations and line extensions.



Using Failure Mode and Effects Analysis (FMEA) , Med-ERRS helps companies determine the likelihood that a proposed product, trademark, package label, package design, or technology system would be vulnerable to user error.

Collaborative Efforts

In order to provide the widest breadth of safety services, we often collaborate with other companies including name creation companies, market research companies, human factors engineering companies and law firms. These companies help complement the services we offer by providing another area of expertise beyond safety to the project. We are happy to recommend our colleagues for you to work with directly, or we can coordinate with them as your primary client contact, depending on your needs.

If you are a company who provides services to the pharmaceutical and healthcare industry who would like to collaborate with Med-ERRS, please contact us.
