The Drug Supply Chain Security Act and Blockchain

The Center for Supply Chain Studies (C4SCS) has undertaken a comprehensive overview of the Drug Supply Chain Security Act (DSCSA) and the use of blockchain. C4SCS has explored the potential use of blockchain technology as a way to address the data sharing requirements of trading partners. Learn how the use of blockchain technology may hold a key to establishing a trusted network of information that both industry partners and regulators can rely on to aid in maintaining the security of the legitimate supply chain.

Connecting the Pharma Supply Chain with RFID via Enterprise Sensor Integration (ESI)

Pharma companies face highly complex challenges within their supply chains, including increasing regulatory requirements for serialization and security. They are under intense pressure to prevent counterfeiting and product spoilage, which can severely damage brand reputation and pose significant health risks to patients. During this presentation, learn how Pharma companies and other healthcare organizations can mitigate risk and extend supply chain visibility with Enterprise Sensor Integration (ESI). Tapestry’s ESI is an Internet of Things platform that seamlessly integrates RFID and myriad sensor technologies through a common interface – regardless of sensor types or hardware brands. Successfully implemented at Boeing and BAE Systems, ESI enables decision-makers to see a complete picture of asset movements and inventory. ESI supports track-and-trace capabilities across global supply chains, and also monitors cold chain conditions for products like biologics, which have strict temperature requirements. This helps ensure the integrity of pharmaceuticals while in transit or in storage.

Calculating the Return on Investment from a Real-Time Location System

An RFID-based real-time location system increases asset utilization rates and cuts expenditures on replacement and rental equipment. In this session, we explain how RFID Journal’s RTLS ROI Calculator estimates that return on investment based on expected improvements in asset utilization rate. The session also covers some of the other soft benefits that can be achieved with an RTLS.
