The Healthcare Packaging Immersion Experience is a unique educational event which brings together medical device packaging professionals and healthcare practitioners in a state-of-the-art healthcare simulation facility at Michigan State University.

MSU is the only university in the world that brings together the Colleges of Human Medicine, Nursing, Osteopathic Medicine and Veterinary Medicine on one campus. The new Learning and Assessment Center (LAC) at MSU is a result of the collaborative vision of these colleges. This unique multi-college organization allows for better efficiency, new cross-college collaborations and the opportunity to model aspects of team care so important to achieving optimal patient outcomes and improving our healthcare system.

The Healthcare Packaging Immersion Experience is a collaboration between the LAC (Human Medicine, Nursing, Osteopathic Medicine, Veterinary Medicine), MSU's world renowned School of Packaging, and a distinguished panel of experts from across the medical packaging industry.

In an environment where success is measured in terms of cost of total care as opposed to the lowest possible piece-price, packaging becomes a vehicle for enhanced health outcomes. Patient-centered solutions are taking center stage in healthcare, and HcPIE is the event focused on patient-centered packaging design. This year’s Immersion Event returns to campus, enabling more interaction and immersion. Participants will have unparalleled access to complete patient care teams and the opportunity to participate in healthcare simulations focused on package design and evaluation at our state of the art simulation facility. This year’s event features both pharmaceutical and medical device tracks, and space is very limited, so register early.
