Digital medicine labelling and traceability in Russia
The labelling has become widespread. The changes affected the legislation of different countries, mainly in the West. Label is a barcode on the product packaging, an identifier containing information about the product. Marking is needed to identify counterfeits. Logistic information systems allow to optimize the connections between system elements. IT companies offer their solutions for transparent tracking of products. SAP SE has launched SAP Advanced Track and Trace for Pharmaceuticals (ATTP). The IT solution specified in the paper serves to ensure patient safety. This new marking and traceability solution helps the pharmaceutical business to keep track of products, collect data from logistics, manufacturing business processes and communicate with regulatory authorities. This paper discusses the main business processes associated with the adoption, movement and disposal of medicine after the entry into force of the laws on mandatory labeling using the example of a multifunctional health complex. The research focuses on minimizing costs and changes in the organization’s work, implementing the SAP ATTP solution, interacting with the existing SAP ERP system. By choosing this solution, it will be easier for the user to adapt to new realities faster.
