Laying the Runaway for an Efficient Pharmaceutical Supply Chain

The human knowhow has many distinctive capabilities, but none aid its case more than that ability to improve on a consistent basis. We say this because the stated ability has already got the world to hit upon some huge milestones, with technology appearing as a major member of the group. The reason why technology enjoys such an esteemed stature among people is, by and large, predicated upon its skill-set, which guided us towards a reality that nobody could have ever imagined otherwise. Nevertheless, if we look up close for a second, it will become clear how the whole runner was also very much inspired from the way we applied those skills across a real world environment. The latter component was, in fact, what gave the creation a spectrum-wide presence, and consequentially, kickstarted a full-blown tech revolution. Of course, this revolution then went on to scale up the human experience through some outright unique avenues, but even after achieving such a monumental feat, technology will somehow continue to produce the right goods. The same has grown increasingly evident in recent times, and assuming one new pharmaceutical-themed development shakes out just like we envision, it will only make that trend bigger and better moving forward.

LSPedia, a trailblazer in traceability solutions and supply chain cloud, has officially announced the launch of a globally leading traceability solution called OneScan 7.1, building further upon its OneScan technology suite which is now trusted by the likes of Cencora, Cardinal Health, Walmart Health, U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs, and more. To understand the development in question, we must try and do a little recap on the wider OneScan suite. It is, in simple terms, industry’s #1 turnkey, cloud-based DSCSA compliance and exceptions management solution that we can use to manage individual points or the entire pharmaceutical supply chain at once. But what makes it such a runaway leader of its space? Well, the answer begins from its assortment of more than 24 standard RESTful APIs that can be seamlessly integrated into your original workflow. The solution also makes it possible for master data, serialized product data, and order data to flow seamlessly in real-time or in batches between connected systems, thus eliminating longstanding problem of double data entry and other possible human errors. Next up, we must get into OneScan’s capabilities in the context of serialization and EPCIS data interoperability. EPCIS is basically where your serialized events are created, updated, and stored. Hence, presenting the solution’s prospects in this area is its ability to take care of each and every step, including serial generation, encoding, commissioning, reworking, and decommissioning. OneScan further gives you chance to facilitate easy FDA 3911 reporting with auto-fill. You see, all you have to do is click a button and the solution will generate a complete 3911 form auto-populated with all of the correct data ready to send. Such a mechanism not only makes a significant cutback on the required time, but it also treads a long distance to again eliminate human errors that have, more or less, always remained a part of manual data entry approaches. Given its pledge to optimize your pharmaceutical supply chain, the stated suite unsurprisingly brings to the fore a strong use case across warehouses and dedicated fulfillment centers. This use cases translates to enabling scan-in (receive) and scan-out (pick, pack, ship) of packages through the 1D UPC barcode and the 2D data matrix barcode. The technology used here also allows aggregation for serialized packages.

Hold on, there is more. You see, alongside operational efficiency, OneScan conceives maximum security on your end. The suite achieves that by letting you access its ATP database of more than 31,000 authorized trading partners. So, you can quickly find, add, verify, and manage your trading partners. Taking that promise of security ahead is the suite’s exceptions management system, which while staying in compliance with FDA’s Enhanced Supply Chain Security requirement, can automatically identify alerts, and resolve EPCIS errors and discrepancies. A major bottleneck when it comes to the pharmaceutical industry is how to manage expiring drugs. Fortunately, OneScan’s proactive reporting mechanism addresses that as well by notifying users on soon-to-expire products, and therefore, giving them enough time to come up with a viable strategy.

Having touched on the underlying suite, we can now get into the brand-new OneScan 7.1 upgrade, which delivers at your disposal state-of-the-art global traceability features that help pharmaceutical companies track and manage products on a global scale like never before. The centerpiece idea here is to enhance transparency, streamline operations, and deliver actionable insights. The update also introduces a whole new supplier management power bundle, a package boasting capability to handle operational exceptions, integrate Investigator, and uphold the industry’s gold standard for EPCIS and VRS exceptions management. Thus cutting back on operational inefficiencies, compliance risks, and data frictions, the stated package is able to optimize supplier relationship management, facilitate real-time exception redressal, all while providing robust big data analytics for supplier scorecard. Complimenting the same is LSPedia’s new cutting-edge supply chain cloud. This cloud technology, in particular, will bear the responsibility to let manufacturers, wholesale distributors, 3PLs, health systems, and retail stores, access an integrated solution for their different supply chain needs. By packing together different elements in the stated manner, the new supply chain cloud can ensure smooth, efficient, and secure data-sharing across supply chain management processes so to minimize disruptions and improve overall performance. As for what it does for the compliance side of things, OneScan offers a line-up of more advanced functionalities, functionalities that can help you clock seamless adherence to ever-evolving US and growing number of global regulatory standards, including DSCSA, cGMP, CFR21 Part 11, FSMA, EU FMD, and more.

“OneScan 7.1 is a game-changer for LSPedia and the pharmaceutical industry. We have not only met current challenges but have anticipated future needs. The introduction of global traceability, enhanced compliance features, and our commitment to data-driven insights make OneScan 7.1 an indispensable solution for pharmaceutical companies seeking innovation and excellence,” said Riya Cao, CEO of LSPedia.

Rounding up highlights is the update on OneScan’s relationship with big data analytics. From now onwards, users can come to expect more comprehensive insights into their operations, something which can eventually set the stage for better-informed decisions, as well as for the birth of a data-driven culture on an organizational level.
