2016 A GOAL
Reduce Opioid Diversion
Our story began with a simple goal. Develop a drug disposal technology that, when used properly, could eliminate unintended access to leftover prescription opioids in the home.
2018 THE SHIFT
An Expanded Vision for the Future
In-depth research of the drug wastage life-cycle proved that fast, affordable, onsite destruction could also reduce registrants' exposure to drug related risks of non-compliance and environmental contamination.
2020 OUR PATENT
Patenting a Proven Technology
Five years of development and testing yielded SafeMedWaste, the industry's first patented, onsite destruction solution for controlled substance wastage.
A New Standard for Destruction of Controlled Substance Wastage
SafeMedWaste is a proprietary and patented chemical digestion technology that lets registrants manage controlled substance wastage with the confidence only destruction can provide.
A Commitment to the Future
As a member of the Pharmaceutical Waste Management Industry, Okra Medical is keenly aware of the daily challenges registrants face when handling, storing, and disposing of controlled substance wastage. We believe those challenges present an opportunity, and a responsibility, for disposal product manufacturers to innovate simpler, safer, and more cost-effective disposal solutions that can keep pace with the needs of industry.
