SAN FRANCISCO, July 2, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Chronicled today announced that its MediLedger Product Verification Solution which assists drug supply chain stakeholder with complying with the saleable returns requirements of the Drug Supply Chain Security Act (DSCSA), has been launched.
The MediLedger solution is a collaboration between the leading pharma manufacturers, wholesale distributors, and innovative industry solution providers who have come together to create a product verification ecosystem which relies on open standards, blockchain hosted look-up directory, and encrypted peer to peer messaging to enable the Pharma industry to check the authenticity of prescription medicines as required by DSCSA. The launch of this network comes five months in advance of the regulatory deadline in late November 2019.
MediLedger Product Verification is an output of the MediLedger Project which has been coordinated by Chronicled, a San Francisco based technology company who for more than four years has leveraged blockchain to power smart, secure supply chain solutions. Chronicled is helping the pharmaceutical industry to launch a permissioned blockchain network based on open standards and specifications. The nodes are distributed and operated by industry participants and technology providers who serve the industry.
