Traceability Webinar


(Webinar held: April 28, 2017) HDA’s Origin is an easy-to-use central data repository that will ensure the efficient and accurate exchange of pharmaceutical product master data between manufacturers and their supply chain partners.

The repository stores Global Trade Item Numbers (GTINs), the critical identifier that links a product with its master data to provide a foundation for the industry to initiate using the product identifier required by the Drug Supply Chain Security Act (DSCSA). 

The traceability system the DSCSA mandates will require a massive amount of frequent and accurate data exchange. Relevant data that is needed for the initial launch of serialization includes the GTIN, the NDC number, package size, quantity and more. To ensure accuracy of master data, the GTINs must be up to date. Origin helps provide a single, uniform method for manufacturers to share product master data with multiple, direct and indirect trading partners to ensure that consistency.

This webinar will help you understand:

  • The critical role of GTINs within the Drug Supply Chain Security Act;
  • How to register and format GTINs;
  • The benefits of a central master data repository to manufacturers, distributors and other stakeholders;
  • The answers to frequently asked questions; and,
  • Next steps and Origin launch plan.
