The Importance of DSCSA to Dispensers
The Drug Supply Chain Security Act (DSCSA) is a United States federal law that was enacted in 2013 in order to prevent counterfeit and stolen drugs from entering the legitimate pharmaceutical supply chain.
The DSCSA has a number of provisions that aim to improve the security of the drug supply chain in the United States. One of the key provisions is to create an interoperable system for tracking and tracing prescription drugs. This system will allow the FDA to identify and track drugs as they move through the pharmaceutical supply chain from the manufacturer to the dispensers and ultimately to the customer.
This white paper was written by Excellis Health Solutions’ Stephen Kovary, RPh (Executive Vice President) and Caitrin O’Shea (Senior Strategy Consultant).

In collaboration with our parent company NNIT and their group companies SL Controls and Excellis Health Solutions comes the very first white paper. It gives a very holistic view of the digitalization of the complete production process and supply chain integration.
What is this white paper about?
In the future pharma production, it will be essential to manage increasingly complex production processes and manufacturing micro-batches tailored to more specific therapies and patient groups.
The enabler is a connected factory, where data and information can flow freely both within the production site and externally. This requires a fully digitized and integrated process and control equipment across all areas of operation including supply chain integration.
This whitepaper shows you
- Challenges and the potential benefits of an integrated factory
- Best practices and solutions for making it happen
- Common mistakes and pitfalls

With patient safety a critical concern, complying with global track and trace mandates and managing and mitigating risk is an essential component of safe and effective pharmaceutical supply management.
