Ohio Department of Veterans Affairs to Utilize rfxcel’s Drug Supply Chain Security Act Compliance Software

Reston, Va., Dec. 15, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE). rfxcel, the global leader in supply chain track and trace solutions, has been selected by the Ohio Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) to support their Drug Supply Chain Security Act (DSCSA) compliance needs for dispensers. The VA Northeast Ohio Healthcare System Pharmacy Service will utilize rfxcel’s track and trace technology to comply with the regulations set into place by the Drug Quality and Security Act of 2013. Included in the act is the DSCSA, which requires dispensers of prescription medications, such as the Department of Veterans Affairs, to meet certain requirements of tracking prescription medications through the pharmaceutical global supply chain.

Under the DSCSA, the Department of Veterans Affairs is required to track transaction history, information, and statements, and to validate its authorized trading partners’ licensure and authorization on an ongoing basis, including serialization and tracing of products to the individual unit level, and report any suspect products to the Food and Drug Administration (FDA).

In selecting rfxcel’s DSCSA Compliance Software, the Department of Veterans Affairs is now able to meet these requirements through rfxcel’s automated software solution. The rfxcel DSCSA Compliance Software not only enables the VA to track medications throughout the entire supply chain, but also provides significant cost savings in redirecting soon-to-expire products to sites that will use them faster, as well as enabling patient recalls to be tracked down to the specific patient level in the inpatient wards and clinics. This allows for more precise distribution channels and ensures the delivery of the correct products to the correct areas to best meet the needs of veterans being served through the VA.

“rfxcel’s compliance software will enable the Department of Veterans Affairs to meet all DSCSA regulations as well as meet the critical global supply chain requirements of visibility, safety, security and confidence at every stage of the supply chain”, said Greg Moulthrop, Vice President, Worldwide Government Group, rfxcel. “Nowhere is the capability we are providing more important than in helping to serve the needs of our veterans and play a role in enabling the VA in Ohio to ensure they are delivering the right medication to the right person at the right time, and that the medication is exactly what it is meant to be and where it is meant to be.”

As a premier vendor providing Track & Trace Security solutions to governments for high value products across multiple complex industries and global supply chains, and specifically for products that impact public health and safety, rfxcel is committed to ensuring complete visibility, safety, security and confidence for its global government customers.

Blockchain Based Supply Chain Traceability

Blockchain Based Supply Chain Traceability:

Blockchain is here to stay, and companies in diverse industries are either investigating how they might benefit from its strengths or have already invested in using the technology in their operations.

As you probably know, a key appeal of blockchain is its ability to maintain immutable records in a decentralized fashion. For supply chain traceability, blockchain allows the provenance of any product to be easily demonstrated with and supported by immutable, tamper-proof data. This not only improves product safety, expedites regulatory compliance, and helps prevent counterfeiting, fraud, and waste — it enhances transparency and visibility, and creates new possibilities to engage consumers with compelling, verifiable product stories.

This white paper provides an overview of the origins of blockchain, from its earliest applications in cryptocurrency and recordkeeping, and discusses how it has transitioned into other industries, including supply chain management. In so doing, we hope to demystify blockchain, which despite its growth and the “buzz” surrounding it, remains opaque to many.

We also examine rfxcel’s Blockchain solutions, our proprietary, platform-agnostic solution that helps customers and their partners ensure that they can interface with blockchain applications. You’ll see how our solutions improve end-to-end supply chain traceability, visibility, and transparency, and learn how it can work in the pharmaceutical, food and beverage/agribusiness, consumer goods, and government industries.

Our trust in the items we consume, from prescription drugs and organic foods to name-brand designer goods, depends on the reliability of supply chains. For almost 20 years, rfxcel has committed itself to making supply chains safer, faster, and more traceable and transparent. We recognize the potential of blockchain and will work with you when you’re ready to see how it might benefit your operations.

 

COVID-19 Healthcare Coalition: Coordinating a National Response to Counterfeit Mitigation

rfxcel is participating in a webinar presented by the COVID-19 Healthcare Coalition on December 17, 2020. Collectively, the coalition pulled together a distinguished set of speakers, including moderator Kevin Smith of the rfxcel Public Sector Team, and we are looking forward to the depth of knowledge that will be shared during the presentation. I hope that you will be able to join us, as we dive deeper into the issues our healthcare supply chain is facing amidst the COVID-19 pandemic.

This webinar is the 3rd in a series of 3. 

Title: Coordinating a National Response to Counterfeit Mitigation

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the healthcare industry has seen demand grow 10 to 15 times pre-COVID levels. Suppliers have struggled to keep pace with this demand, and counterfeiters have taken advantage of the situation to sell substandard products to desperate buyers. This webinar will address how industry, healthcare, and government (federal, state, and local) can work together to reduce counterfeits.

Panelists

  • Moderator: Kevin Smith, Senior Government Affairs Advisor, rfxcel
  • Dr. Alex Eastman, Senior Medical Officer-Operations, Department of Homeland Security
  • Aaron Graham, Executive Director, Brand Safety & Security, Boehringer Ingelheim
  • Sarah Hilderbrand, Chief Operations Officer, NASPO ValuePoint, National Association of State Procurement Officials (NASPO)
  • Raj Sharma, Founder and CEO, Public Spend Forum

Note: This 12:00-1:30 p.m. ET webinar is the third in a three-part series. Recordings of all webinars will be available on the rfxcel website following this presentation.

rfxcel Responds to Unprecedented Cold Chain Requirements and Logistics Challenges as COVID-19 Vaccine Distribution Nears

Reno, Nevada, Dec. 2, 2020. rfxcel, the global leader in digital supply chain traceability solutions, continues to address cold chain and logistical challenges it anticipates will arise from the first widespread distribution of COVID-19 vaccines. The company has been preparing for a “vaccine surge” since the pandemic began to ensure it can respond to customer and industry needs when distribution begins to exert pressure on supply chains.

“The pandemic has revealed shortcomings in every supply chain, and we’ve seen increased competition for resources,” said rfxcel CEO and Co-Founder Glenn Abood. “We’ve worked with our global customers in pharma/life sciences, food and beverage, consumer goods, and government to keep their operations responsive and nimble. Now, we’re prepared to address additional stresses distribution of COVID-19 vaccines could create as the call for ‘all hands on deck’ commences and already scarce resources are redirected for the effort.”

rfxcel has provided traceability solutions since 2003. Its rfxcel Traceability System comprises discrete solutions that work in concert to harmonize, optimize, automate, and monitor supply chain operations, including serialization, compliance, environmental monitoring, raw materials traceability, and data analytics.

The company’s Integrated Monitoring (rIM) solution uses Internet of Things (IoT) technology to monitor the environmental condition of products in real time as they move through supply chains on land, sea, and air. rIM communicates with small IoT-enabled devices embedded with products and sends updates and alerts about more than a dozen environmental conditions, such as temperature, location, humidity, light, and shock. It can alert users about route diversions and ensure logistics providers remain in compliance with delivery agreements.

rfxcel has also developed Accurate Immunization Management (AIM), an automated, cloud-based solution that tracks the dispensing of vaccines. It seamlessly integrates with critical healthcare applications such as Electronic Health Records (EHRs) and Immunization Information Systems (IIS). It empowers healthcare practitioners to view patients’ immunization records in real time, manage accurate administering, monitor inventory, and safely dispense the right vaccines to the right patient at the right time. Because it is automated, users can be up and running with virtually no training, ensuring quick implementation in mission-critical locations.

“We want to provide foolproof traceability,” Abood said. “Today, it’s more important than ever to be able to question, examine, and control every part of the supply chain, which is what our rfxcel Traceability System platform provides with solutions such as rIM and AIM.”
