TraceLink Launches Drug Supply Chain Security Act (DSCSA) Solution, Creates First Transaction History Management System for Pharmaceutical Supply Chain

WAKEFIELD, MA -- (Marketwired) -- 05/19/14 -- TraceLink Inc., the leader in pharmaceutical serialization, track and trace and supply network towers for global Life Sciences, announced today the release of TraceLink Life Sciences Cloud version 5.0 with Product Track, the industry's first Transaction History Management System for end-to-end Drug Supply Chain Security Act (DSCSA) compliance starting on January 1, 2015. Product Track delivers a complete DSCSA Tracing, Verification and Serialization solution for the unique requirements of all companies across the pharmaceutical supply chain, including flexible HDMA ASN, GS1 EPCIS and secure web portal data exchange.

"Our customers trust TraceLink to be their partner in understanding and meeting new regulatory compliance requirements like DSCSA regardless of the size of their business or the complexity of their trade network," said Shabbir Dahod, President and CEO of TraceLink. "In response, we developed a true Transaction History Management System to help our customers deal with DSCSA regulatory complexity, pharmaceutical trading partner diversity and the need for operational efficiency in a secure compliance environment. TraceLink helps take the risk and complexity of DSCSA compliance off our customers' shoulders, enabling them to focus on serving patients not managing systems."

DSCSA, Title II of the Drug Quality and Security Act, implements new regulations governing drug products across all changes of ownership from pharmaceutical manufacturer to pharmacy dispenser. DSCSA regulations require:

  • Tracing: Provide, receive and manage Transaction History (TH), Transaction Information (TI) and Transaction Statement (TS) compliance documents for each change of ownership of a drug product
  • Verification: Retrieve, analyze, verify and provide TH, TI, TS for each product in response to queries from government officials during suspect product investigations and drug recalls
  • Serialization: Serialize drug products at the saleable unit and case level for manufactured and repackaged product

The Life Sciences Cloud, the only secure, validated cloud solution designed for Life Sciences operations, provides a highly connected network linking pharmaceutical companies, CMO/CPOs, 3PLs, wholesale distributors and pharmacies that is tailor-made for fast, secure DSCSA compliance. A single connection to the TraceLink Life Sciences Cloud delivers: (1) full DSCSA Tracing, Verification and Serialization compliance, (2) complete connectivity to all supply and trading partners and (3) comprehensive outsourced supply network management for any company regardless of size or technical capability.

TraceLink Product Track for DSCSA Compliance
