HOLLOWAY AMERICA, a stainless steel pressure vessel fabrication company, announced today it will host a booth at Pharma EXPO and PACK EXPO International 2016 from Nov. 6-9 at McCormick Place in Chicago. The annual event is a joint venture hosted by the International Society for Pharmaceutical Engineering (ISPE) and the Packaging Machinery Manufacturers Institute (PMMI). Representatives from HOLLOWAY will join more than 50,000 professionals from various industries at the largest conference center in North America. At booth W-1033, HOLLOWAY AMERICA will be on hand to share information about its ASME pressure vessels, including pharmaceutical-grade mixing tanks and vessels, fabricated for high pressure or atmospheric conditions. Company representatives will be available to discuss planning and estimating requirements for custom-fabricated mixers, bioreactors or fermenters that meet one-of-kind specs, depending on the client’s needs. “We’re always happy to answer questions about our stainless steel fermenters, mixing tanks and other pressure vessels as well as discuss HOLLOWAY’s VesselWellness™ Program,” said Director of Marketing Randy Colwell. The company’s popular preventative maintenance program Colwell referenced involves meticulous pressure vessel inspection procedures designed to ensure equipment adheres to or exceeds standards for the pharmaceutical, biopharm and packaging industries. “That said,” Colwell added, “regulations vary from country to country, so at an international conference like this, we often field questions about our ability to engineer and fabricate code-ready vessels for our diverse clientele.” The exhibition, which started as a packaging show, eventually evolved into a joint effort with the ISPE and the PMMI as conference organizers discovered a significant interest among professionals from both packaging and pharmaceutical processing companies. Today, the co-located Pharma EXPO and PACK EXPO bring together more pharmaceutical professionals, manufacturers and suppliers than any other conference in the world, as stated on the event website. In addition to HOLLOWAY’s custom-fabricated equipment, attendees will have the opportunity to learn about thousands of other technological breakthroughs at the expo. Conference attendees can explore the leading solutions in processing and packaging equipment, learn about the latest breakthroughs at the Innovation Stage, attend free educational courses and network with thousands of peers. Conference highlights include a First Timers’ Lounge, industry-themed innovation pavilions and a charity event featuring magician-comic duo Penn & Teller.

The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act that was signed into law in March 2010 included specific language codifying a new health care entity, the accountable care organization. The accountable care organization model is put forward as a way to increase value in health care, that is, improving outcomes as efficiently as possible. It is not known whether this concept can be applied successfully beyond the carefully selected examples where it already functions. Three general principles figure prominently in known successful models: the provision of efficient primary care, shared savings, and IT infrastructure. The authors discuss these concepts, ongoing uncertainties, and how radiologists may fit into an accountable care organization. © 2011 American College of Radiology.
