Track and Trace: Business Benefits Beyond Compliance

Track and Trace: Business Benefits Beyond Compliance | Serialization | Scoop.it
Global track-and-trace requirements have increased the complexity and demands on supply chains. Now, more than ever, pharmaceutical companies need to deploy applications, services and mobile solutions that satisfy many parallel goals. Pharmaceutical companies must consider areas of compliance, product integrity, product visibility and risk reduction, all while running supply chains at full speed and low cost. The decision to serialize and track products opens up a whole new range of options and can provide value-added benefits for pharmaceutical companies beyond basic compliance.

5 Ways How Supply Chain Management Is Revolutionized by Machine Learning!

5 Ways How Supply Chain Management Is Revolutionized by Machine Learning! | Serialization | Scoop.it

In the year 2016, Otto, Uber’s autonomous trucking brand, made a shipment of 50,000 beer cans for the first time in a self-driving vehicle that traveled from Fort Collins to Colorado Springs along existing Colorado highways. This is one of the many examples that show the scope of Artificial Intelligence in various aspects of Supply Chain Management. Machine Learning uses existing data to discover patterns in an industry and pinpoints its most significant factors that can then be used to improve outputs in that industry, and so is the case with Supply Chain Management.

Blockchain Holds Promise for Thwarting Drug Counterfeiters

Blockchain Holds Promise for Thwarting Drug Counterfeiters | Serialization | Scoop.it

About seven out of ten Americans takes a prescription drug. Though most of us don't think twice about the journey our medicine takes from factory to pharmacy, the drug supply chain is in trouble.
About 10% of the world's drugs are tainted or unsafe, and the counterfeit drug market is now a $217-billion industry. Because drugs are manufactured all over the globe, products change hands dozens of times before ending up on pharmacy shelves. That creates plenty of opportunity for fake, expired or contaminated drugs to infect an increasingly chaotic supply chain.

Why the Health Care Industry Has Little Patience for Blockchain

Why the Health Care Industry Has Little Patience for Blockchain | Serialization | Scoop.it
“The biggest obstacle to using blockchain in health care is the lack of data sharing,” Melanie Nuce, blockchain expert and senior vice president of corporate development for the information standards organization GS1 US, tells ThirtyK. At a patient level, for instance, electronic health records (EHRs) may not be compatible with EHR technology in other health care systems. At a pharmaceutical level, it still can be hard to quickly and accurately trace ingredients, manufactured lots and individual doses through development, manufacturing and delivery.
Beeyond's insight:

There are plenty of obstacles to blockchain’s acceptance. There’s skepticism around blockchain’s scalability and security, [...] Many health care providers, payers, pharmaceutical companies and regulators have only a nodding acquaintance with blockchain, and there are few applications in use.
