Our Solution Partners' successful GS1 Standards implementations from across the world
Falsified medicines pose a serious health risk to patients. The European Falsified Medicines Directive (FMD), which had to be implemented by February 2019, aims to eliminate this risk. The directive demands a secured pharmaceutical supply chain through end-to-end verification of prescribed pharmaceutical products, thereby increasing the safety for patients. All supply chain partners have to fulfill specific requirements to reach compliance. PHOENIX group, a leading healthcare provider in Europe, has been FMD-compliant since April 20th, 2018. The company has chosen the Movilitas. Cloud solution to implement the FMD requirements in 17 countries for wholesale and pre-wholesale activities.
Starting May 26, 2020, hospitals are required to comply with the MDR (Medical Device Regulation) and already from January 1, 2020, they will have to supply product data to the LIR (Landelijk Implantatenregister; National Registry for Implants).
To meet the demands of the MDR, hospitals will be expected to process product data from the GDSN data pool. The NFU (Nederlandse Federatie van Universitair Medische Centra; Dutch Federation of University Medical Centers) has done extensive research into the best way to approach this for affiliated hospitals. This search led to the decision to choose SRC-PIM, provided by SRC System Integrators.
