Track and Trace refers to the process of monitoring the movement of prescription drugs from the manufacturer to the patient. The Drug Supply Chain Security Act (DSCSA) mandates that all prescription drugs must be traced through the supply chain at the serialized unit-level to help prevent the distribution of counterfeit, contaminated, or otherwise harmful products.
OneScan is the industry's leading track and trace solution. Our system allows organizations to quickly track the movement of drugs and identify any potential issues, ensuring that patients receive safe and effective medications.
(Sunsetting) Lot-level tracing using ASNs (Advance Shipment Notifications) is a method of tracking prescription drugs as they move through the supply chain. Under the Drug Supply Chain Security Act (DSCSA) as of 2015, ASNs must be used to provide lot-level information, including the product identifier, manufacturer, and expiration date, to facilitate product tracing. Lot-level tracing is sunsetting and will be replaced with serialized unit-level tracing (EPCIS) in November 2023.
Unit-Level Tracing Serialization (EPCIS)
Serialized unit-level tracing using EPCIS (Electronic Product Code Information Services) is replacing lot-level tracing entirely as of November 2023. It's a method of tracking individual units of prescription drugs as they move through the supply chain. Under the Drug Supply Chain Security Act (DSCSA), EPCIS must be used to capture and share information, such as the product identifier, serial number, and transaction history, of each individual unit of product. This information helps to identify the specific source and history of each unit, and enables more efficient and effective tracking and recall of potentially dangerous drugs.
“LSPedia's OneScan allows us to work smarter, manage technical issues and negative verifications better, and not find it necessary to hire FTEs and throw other resources at the problem. OneScan is the only solution that solves the management of anticipated volumes of negative verifications. In addition, it gives us the ability to manage suspect/illegitimate products and file FDA 3911 notifications in one place and do trading partner notifications when required.”
“We feel the pain when EPCIS files are late or error out. Shipments get set aside and pile up at receiving. With our volume, it’s impossible for us to check and catch errors manually. This needs to be addressed with automation and, OneScan is, in my mind, the best product out there to help with exceptions management.”
"LSPedia OneScan has been instrumental in managing partners and getting the EPCIS data. My CEO and I placed our trust into LSPedia. I am just happy that LSPedia is in our corner because I don’t have time to check EPCIS for errors. We are a small company. I wear a lot of hats. OneScan took a lot of burden away from us which gives me more time to generate revenue.”
"My experience with LSPedia has been exceptional, and the customer service has been fantastic. I am confident that LSPedia will continue to provide us with compliance to the regulations set forth by DSCSA.”
"LSPedia's cost was in-line, it's user-friendly, but most of all it was the support and trust we have in LSPedia beyond almost anything. We have just had a really positive relationship for approximately seven years."
