Jim Nasr | VP of Technology and Innovation | Synchrogenix: A Certara Company

This session will develop into the practical considerations and approach taken to develop a large scale distributed ledger technology implementation for tracking drug shortage in the pharma industry, using open API technologies and Hedera Hashgraph. We'll be addressing the rationale and approach for our design and implementation, architectural components, complementary use cases, lessons learned and the roadmap going forward.

  18. 18. Generic Drug Supply Shortage POC Active Pharmaceutical Ingredient (API) Manufacturer Factory A Factory B Hedera Network Each API manufacturer can be declared on the network. Each API manufacturer can declare a list of factories and their status (active or not). Each factory needs to declare as well their manufactured ingredients. Distributor Each distributor can be declared on the network and defined their stock availability on ingredients. Pharmacy Each pharmacy can be declared on the network and defined their stock availability on ingredients. Group Purchasing Organization FDA inspectors can publish their inspection reports on factory to the network to identify potential inactivity of some factories. FDA Inspection Team FDA Regulator Team FDA regulators can access data real time on stock availability, factories status, inspection reports through a reporting system to make decision.
