This webinar explores some use cases to show how machine learning and Big Data analytics can help overcome the challenges facing the biopharmaceutical industry through more confident data-driven decisions.
The GS1 Healthcare US Secure Supply Chain Task Force, consisting of more than 50 members from throughout the supply chain, has developed a guideline to identify and serialize pharmaceutical products using GS1 identification numbers. The guideline titled “Applying GS1 Standards to U.S. Pharmaceutical Supply Chain Business Processes to Support Serialization, Pedigree and Track & Trace” enables pharmaceutical companies to trace the movement of products through the U.S. pharmaceutical supply chain.
