HRG’s Rx Track-and-Trace tool targets DSCSA compliance

By Sandra Levy - 01/22/2019
Hamacher Resource Group is offering its Rx Track-and-Trace Compliance Services to help retail pharmacies meet Drug Supply Chain Security Act, or DSCSA, compliance requirements for the 2020 deadline.

HRG’s Rx Track-and-Trace Compliance Service includes data storage, item lookup and pedigree tracking, as well as real-time notification and alerts if there are issues to address, the company said. A team of HRG auditors actively monitor each client’s transactions to identify any alerts generated by the rules-based system that uses artificial intelligence to detect abnormalities in the transport of prescription drugs from their place of origin.

“Dispensers must find a solution so they can quickly identify and investigate suspect and illegitimate prescription drugs, and they also need to store the tracing documentation for six years to meet the requirements of DSCSA." HRG president Dawn Vogelsand said. "Our Rx Track-and-Trace Compliance Service eases this burden for pharmacies by providing a proactive, reliable, real-time monitoring service, as well as a state of the art secure repository to store the vast amount of data that will be generated by these requirements. From independent pharmacies and drug chains to large retail mass, big box and grocery chains that have pharmacies — they all need to choose how they’ll meet the requirements of this law, and the sooner the better,” Vogelsand said.

HRG is licensing the system from Advasur, a company that is experienced in building healthcare systems with three-tier security architecture for U.S. government agencies. The system was originally built for and has been in use to monitor a supermarket chain’s transactions across their 2,000-plus pharmacies and their hundreds of drug suppliers. Tens of thousands of transactions are being tracked daily.
