NORTH READING, Massachusetts, Oct. 11, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- TraceLink Inc., the World's Largest Track and Trace Network for connecting the life sciences supply chain and providing real-time information sharing for better patient outcomes, today announced that JAC, the UK's leading solution provider of medicines management solutions, will partner exclusively with TraceLink to provide EU Falsified Medicines Directive (FMD) compliance for its hospital pharmacy customers, including more than 250 Trust and Health Board sites in the UK, totaling over 200 hospitals.
As a wholly owned subsidiary of US based WellSky, JAC is part of the largest global provider network of hospital-based pharmacy, e-prescribing, blood management and related clinical information solutions. JAC's flagship OneMedicines™ platform draws upon decades of domain expertise and prioritizes patient safety, operational efficiency and financial sustainability. EU FMD requirements dictate that hospitals and pharmacies connect to their National Medicines Verification Organization (NMVO) to verify and decommission serialized pharmaceutical products. Through its partnership with TraceLink, JAC will provide Smart Rx Manager, a TraceLink software application that is integrated into JAC's platform, to its customers, allowing them to connect with SecurMed UK, the UK Medicines Verification Organization.
"Our partnership with TraceLink allows us to offer a proven and tested EU FMD compliant solution for our customers to connect to SecurMed UK," said Rob Blay, CEO, JAC. "Similar to TraceLink, JAC also supports digital transformation initiatives and interoperability standards for community and regional data sharing. Therefore, we look forward to continuing to build our partnership in the future to offer compliance and digitalized solutions together for healthcare companies in the UK and Europe."
"The February 2019 deadline for EU FMD will impact all organizations in the end-to-end pharmaceutical supply chain and we are proud to support these organizations through our tested integrations with all NMVOs and the EU Hub," said Shabbir Dahod, president and CEO, TraceLink. "Through our partnership with JAC, more than 200 hospitals in the UK will have access to Smart Rx Manager, allowing them to not only meet their immediate EU FMD compliance needs, but also connect to the TraceLink network of more than 270,000+ trade partners."
