This webinar will provide a demonstration of HDA’s Origin — a high-powered, central data repository, hosting verified Global Trade Item Number (GTIN) information — and review key features of the service. Launched in July, the service enables the secure, accurate and efficient exchange of pharmaceutical product master data between manufacturers and their supply chain trading partners to help comply with the Drug Supply Chain Security Act (DSCSA).
Importantly, the GTIN is the crucial identifier that links a scan of a barcode to the data associated with that product. And, with manufacturers required under DSCSA to begin serializing products by November 27, 2017, now is the time to begin sharing this information.
HDA has partnered with ValueCentric to develop this service. Its concept is straightforward: manufacturers and repackagers (“contributors”) populate GTIN data into Origin and downstream trading partners (distributors and dispensers or “consumers”) can download that information into their master data systems. This ensures that manufacturers can simultaneously reach direct and indirect downstream trading partners when they introduce current or new products with serial numbers, make packaging changes that require a new GTIN, acquire or divest products and more.
