VU Solutions cover all stages of Pharmaceutical Supply Chain Including Manufacturing, Transportation, Warehousing and Distribution and End Point (Retail or Hospitals etc.) Inventory Control thus providing visibility and control to manage entire end to end Supply Chain including the Cold Chain component
Globally, standards have evolved into a system called “Item level Serialization” where each item is coded with unique serial number. This simplifies the ability to track, trace, monitor or authenticate any pharmaceuticals.
The GS-1 standard is widely used, however, it is not a failsafe measure. Counterfeit pharmaceuticals are a global concern. Counterfeiters duplicate GS-1 codes allowing them to introduce counterfeit, ineffective medications into the supply chain.
To attack the counterfeiting problem, GS-1 codes are combined with other proprietary coding which are associated with the GS-1 codes. Vu360 solutions seamlessly associates these codes. For the management and storage of pharmaceuticals, temperature-controlled storage is also used.
Transportation challenges are complicated in the pharmaceutical industry. Temperature monitoring, theft, counterfeiting and diversion are problems plaguing the supply chain. Temperature control and monitoring is key to ensuring efficacy of medications.
The ability to track and trace medications during transportation allows companies to reduce theft and diversion. Track and trace technology also greatly reduces counterfeit medications from entering the supply chain as medications can be verified once they reach intended healthcare facility.
This stage involve several areas as following
a. Receiving: This step includes product tagging (using RFIDs or barcodes). This step will especially be important in the case of implementation for the Ministy of Health since earlier part of supply chain is not in place. This will allow each case/pallet to be identified with information such as product name/type, manufacturer, expiry date, storage conditions etc.
b. SKU Management: Information about each type of medicine needs to be stored in the database to cross reference storage conditions and expiration dates etc.
c. Storage: Warehouse need to be divided into zones and each case/pallet stored in proper zone. Each zone needs to be monitored to maintain proper conditions. Vu360 state of the art monitoring includes thermal imaging.
d. RFID-based Scanning: This level of scrutiny can prevent theft and human errors including shipping the wrong material.
e. Order Processing: Material can be assigned to work order but instead of normal first-in-first-out scheme, more intelligent algorithms based on expiry date and other parameters can be used.
f. Shipment: RFID readers at shipping doors can make sure that the right material is shipped against different work orders etc.
The Vu360 Solution is fully capable of being extended to end-point facilities, such individual hospitals, while maintaining full centralized control. The system can be expanded to hospitals and other healthcare facilities to ensure proper receipt and inventory control.
