Specifically, it includes replacing drug paper labels with colored electronic shelf labels (ESL), and enhancing drug display information and color recognition effects. The dispensing station is equipped with light guidance, voice prompts, and ESL labeling of drug names and warning icons. In addition, there are smart medicine carts set up by ESL to manage inpatient medicines, which not only replaces the manual and repeated pasting of paper labels, saving paper consumption, but also enables real-time access to patient medication information, shortening work time. This innovative electronic paper smart system can greatly improve the efficiency of drug management and the accuracy of taking medicines, and provide safe medication services.

Taipei Veterans General Hospital has more than 3,000 hospital beds, receives nearly 10,000 outpatients every day, and handles up to 36,500 drug dispensations. In addition, they need to manage close to 5,000 medicines. This smart drug management solution can greatly simplify the drug management process, reduce the consumption of manpower and material resources, avoid dispensing errors, reduce pharmacists' workload, and greatly improve management efficiency.
It is hoped that E-Ink will continue to benefit citizens at different levels in the future.
