    • “When using VRS initially, we utilized GLNs to identify a trading partner. We discovered GLNs that were not active or not associated with the requesting entity. GLNs also do not inform about authorized status. Additionally, we had no proof that the provided GLN actually came from the trading partner. This was a compliance gap we had to close.”

    • Data is the key ingredient for almost all aspects of DSCSA compliance. Our role is to provide a solution for secure and reliable capture, use and storage of that data—so that our customers can focus on their core operations. Our goal always, is to partner with our pharmaceutical customers on their compliance journey. By combining Spherity’s subject expertise with our leadership in traceability, we provide a swift and easy to integrate route to best practice compliance for our customers.

    • As a VRS solution provider, all we had to do was a simple API call to the digital wallet to either retrieve or verify credentials and some small changes to handle the response from the wallet. All in all, this technology allows us to implement the ATP check to the existing — and established — processes without disruption.

    • Legisym is thrilled to be working alongside Spherity to bring the first production level ATP credentialing solution to the industry.

    • The pharmaceutical supply chain is entering a critical phase as trading partners prepare for DSCSA compliance in 2023. Integrating credentialing into existing data management or pharmacy IT systems is key to enabling industry adoption and increasing efficiency in an affordable way. Credentials are key to product identifier (PI) verification and product ownership tracing, two key DSCSA requirements starting Nov 27, 2023.
