Track & Trace | Serialization | Aggregation - tailor-made complete solution for the pharmacy
According to the World Health Organization (WHO), 10 percent of medicines WORLDWIDE are counterfeit, in developing countries up to 30 percent
Counterfeit medicines pose a serious health risk. Counterfeit medicines are also a matter of safety and, in the worst case, patient survival
Counterfeit medicines no longer only affect so-called lifestyle products, but also cancer medicines, medicines to treat cardiovascular problems, antibiotics...
In order to increase security in the regular supply chain, the EU issues additional requirements for security measures. Since February 2019, the packaging of prescription drugs must be provided with a tamper protection - e.g. a seal label.
The medication will be checked for authenticity by a scan in the pharmacy when it is dispensed. Before the drug is passed on to the patient, the pharmacist checks an identification code for each drug.
For this purpose, medicines are given packaging-specific serial numbers that are stored in a protected database. If a pack with an unknown number or one that has already been scanned is found, the system sounds an alarm.
THE SAFE SOLUTION:
TRANSPARENCY from production to the patient through:
Identification of each folding box with a unique serial number
Aggregation of the individual folding boxes in the next packaging unit (e.g. carton)
Aggregation of the packaging units to the shipping unit (e.g. pallet)
Global delivery of serial number and aggregation data
The advantages are apparent
An important step in the production of safe medicines
Improvement of quality management
Documentation of the supply chain from the manufacturer to the end user
Reduction in product aging within the supply chain
Improvement in product data accuracy and preservation of this data
New possibilities in CRM (customer relationship)
Improved product safety and increased customer confidence
Ensuring corporate earning power by avoiding product piracy
