New regulations across the globe are coming into effect, requiring pharmaceutical manufacturers, distributors, dispensers, and others up and down the chain to build serialization, verification, and traceability into the supply chain. At TraceLink’s NEXUS ’15 conference, we learned a lot about the impact of these new requirements, how companies are responding, and whether there is an ROI beyond compliance.
End-to-end pharmaceutical development and supply chain, including clinical trials, raw materials, APIs, contract manufacturers, brands, distribution, retail, regulations, marketing, etc.
The supply chain business community now includes Risk Management as a business priority and cites it as a key area in need of improvement. Are solution providers ready?
The discussion has moved from if to how for many major pharmaceutical manufacturers. The barriers to adoption are down and the benefits are up. So you may have a good reason to look at solutions now.
The theft of pharmaceuticals has gone down dramatically in the past few years. Learn how they made such strides.
A look at the key role that carton-level RFID temperature tagging can have within today’s pharmaceutical cold chains.
Architecting Serialization and Cold Chains for Food and Pharma.
Life Science’s transformation is being driven by price pressures, healthcare reform, emerging markets, and other factors, disrupting the traditional value chain relationships and business models. We discuss some key trends and how companies are coping.
Solution Providers discuss integration to provide end-to-end Cold Chain Management and traceability – from seed to consumer.
Management Dynamics serves Content and services beyond traditional software solutions.
Warehouse Management Systems should be selected based on your industry. Here are some industrty-specific requirements and what’s available from various WMS vendors.
A consortium of ten U.K.-based companies, led by Authentix (an authentication and brand protection firm), aims to provide secure serialization and track and trace capability for the pharmaceutical industry. Their solution uses a combination of 2D barcodes, RFID, authentication, serialization, ePedigree, and wireless/mobile technologies to track and validate drugs as they move from the manufacturing plant, through the warehouse/distribution channel, and to the retail drug store or other point of dispensing. This should be helpful in anti-counterfeiting, reducing diversion, and improving drug safety. We’ve seen this movie before (at least a similar one) with California Express, but there are differences too.
