Pharmaceutical Supply Chain Using Blockchain Technology

Shivangi Sharma [2] | Meenu [26]

Abstract: The production, distribution, and delivery of pharmaceutical products from manufacturers to end - users, such as healthcare professionals and patients, are all included in the complex network of activities known as the pharmaceutical supply chain. An overview of the major elements and difficulties in the pharmaceutical supply chain are given in this abstract. The sourcing of raw materials, such as active pharmaceutical ingredients (APIs), which are needed to make medications, marks the start of the supply chain. These raw ingredients are subsequently converted by manufacturers through a variety of production procedures, such as formulation, packaging, and quality control. After being produced, the goods travel through several distribution channels to reach the final consumers, including wholesalers, distributors, and pharmacies. To maintain product availability and integrity, this process necessitates careful management of inventory, transportation, and storage. Maintaining product quality and safety along the whole supply chain depends heavily on regulatory compliance, such as adhering to Good Manufacturing practices (GMP) and Good Distribution practices (GDP). There are many difficulties in the pharmaceutical supply chain. Maintaining the supply chain's integrity is one of the main concerns to stop drug fraud and counterfeiting. To improve product authenticity and traceability, technologies like serialization and track - and - trace systems are being used.
