From the Healthcare & Life Sciences Institute

Pharmaceutical companies have been working diligently to meet global product traceability mandates, particularly the November 2017 U.S. Drug Supply Chain Security Act (DSCSA) serialization requirements. Organizations will  continue to commit significant resources to meet a variety of compliance deadlines over the next five years, while the industry works to achieve full end-to-end traceability of pharmaceutical products.

A compliance program of this magnitude creates significant implementation challenges and disruptions across various functions within and across organizations. However, it also provides opportunities to seek and achieve value through business process improvements and more effective revenue lifecycle management.
