New Systech Offering Addresses DSCSA Compliance for Dispensers and Pharmacies

DOWNERS GROVE, Ill., July 11, 2023 /PRNewswire/ – Systech, part of Markem-Imaje and Dover (NYSE: DOV), and a leading provider of digital identification and traceability software solutions, today announced the availability of Systech UniTrace DSCSA for Pharmacies and Dispensers.

This new solution helps pharmacies and other dispensers meet DSCSA compliance by enabling them to acquire, validate and retain electronic transaction information that encompasses unit-level serialization data and transaction statements supplied by their vendors. With Systech UniTrace DSCSA, dispensers are equipped through one unified platform to completely access, examine, verify and distribute necessary compliance data as requested by regulatory entities or business associates.

Healthcare and retail pharmacies can choose one of three Systech UniTrace DSCSA package levels, basic, advanced and enterprise. The basic package is a complete, turnkey DSCSA compliance solution for smaller pharmacies that may not have the resources to invest in new technology or specialized personnel. The advanced offering is suitable for mid-sized dispensers, featuring capabilities such as scanning, automation and expiry management. The enterprise solution is ideal for large organizations or high-volume dispensers seeking multi-level management, multi-system integrations, custom reporting and data analytic capabilities.

Pharmacies using Systech UniTrace DSCSA will receive transaction data that reflects the shipments coming to them from wholesalers, creating a digital representation of the physical supply chain. In addition to maximizing efficiencies for pharmacies that have historically balanced shipment notices with the product received at each pharmacy manually, this solution will be critical for companies adapting to heightened DSCSA electronic interoperability requirements effective November 2023.

“Systech UniTrace for Dispensers is the solution for pharmacies to simplify their compliance workflows and streamline their pharmacy operations. This new offering is another example of how Systech is committed to helping pharmacies of all sizes become DSCSA compliant,” said Girish Juneja, Senior Vice President and Chief Digital Officer of Dover.“Systech UniTrace DSCSA reflects the industry’s focus to date on the role of manufacturers and wholesalers, data integration requirements and readiness for the final phase of interoperability requirements coming with the November deadline.”

Systech has proven itself over decades in the highly regulated and rigorous pharmaceutical arena with reliable and configurable packaging execution systems and serialization software. With the advent of DSCSA, Systech has led the way in delivering technology solutions that enable compliance, leveraging a platform that can uniquely create product data at the line level and deliver meaningful value from that data throughout the supply chain. Systech provides a complete traceability solution across the pharmaceutical supply chain ecosystem, from manufacturers, contract manufacturing organizations (CMOs), contract packaging organizations (CPOs) and distributors to third-party logistics providers, pharmacies and regulatory bodies.
