Medical devices when combined with prescription drugs are under constant scrutiny from government regulators to improve safety and compliance. All participants in the life sciences supply chain, including manufacturers, distributors, hospitals and clinics must constantly add capabilities to their systems and processes to meet the latest regulatory and legislative hurdles.
With rapid globalization and increasingly porous borders, the life sciences industries have also faced challenges from counterfeit products being introduced into the supply chain. As a result, new US and Global laws have been enacted that require an authentic chain of custody for each medical device that includes a pharmaceutical product throughout the supply chain. These laws are particularly challenging because of the number of products that need to be tracked as well as differing requirements posed by different regulatory agencies.
In addition, the medical device industry needs the ability to execute targeted recalls for defective product. In the past, this has been a monumental task to identify which products are affected and where they are located in the supply chain.
