More about FMD

The role of the European Medicines Verification System (EMVS)

As a direct result of the FMD regulation, applied in the EU from the 9th of February 2019, all prescription medicines must undergo systematic origin testing before they are made available to patients.

In order to verify the authenticity of any medicine, the unique identifier of the medicine package has to be compared with the data of the unique identifier stored in the database of the National Medicines Verification Systems (NMVS).

Under law, to be able to check medicines protected with safety elements, national databases were created and are connected to each other.

The European Medicines Verification System (EMVS) was created and launched at the EU level, and is constantly being developed by the European Medicines Verification Organisation (EMVO). The development of each national database is organised and supervised by a national organisation set up by the relevant stakeholders at a national level.

Based on the regulation, only medicines with safety features can be marketed and distributed in the EU, the relevant data of which have been uploaded in the data storage systems and the safety features of which have been checked by the entities and persons obliged to do so during the process of distribution and sale to patients.

Offered as a service

Scan the medicine identifier using the phone's camera or scanner. MedTracS application communicates with the server via an internet connection and forwards data from the scanned codes. MedTracS server verifies users, perorms connections and communication with the NMVS national systems.

icon async
Asynchronous connection for fast operation

To ensure fast operation, an asynchronous connection is used between MedTracS application and MedTracS server, so you don't have to wait for responses while using the application. Thanks to this solution, you don't need a fast Internet connection or a high-performance device because the actual work is done by the server, not by the user's device.

Very low investment needed

The investment cost of MedTracS can be incredibly low, even zero, as you don't need to buy software licenses and can install the MedTracS system on any existing devices (computer scanners and/or Android or iOS smartphones).

If you handle a high volume of medicines and your employees need to process a large number of medicine batches and packs, MedTracS can be installed and used in one or many divisions and locations. You can install the MedTracS application on as many user devices as you need, and you can always make any changes later. You can assign one or more users to each user device as required.

MedTracS works both online and offline. If you use MedTracS application and lose your Internet connection, you can continue your work. Your device stores the scanned codes in its memory.

Who is MedTracS ideal for?

Mass scanning

If very fast and mass scanning of medicines is important

Speed, precision and tracking are very important for wholesalers, hospitals, logistical operators and companies which offer medicines depository and distribution services, where there are a huge amount of movements of medicines day by day, because every small shortfall or interruption may result in a loss of time and money.

With the LayerScan function, you can quickly verify or decommission hundreds or thousands of medicine packs, which increases efficiency, reduces scanning times, and simplifies and speeds up the work of your staff.

If you are looking for a simple and cost-effective solution

If you are a representative of a company or organisation with a lower pharmaceutical turnover, you may think that compliance with FMD requirements means a complex challenge and a high-cost burden.

Don’t spend money unnecessarily and don’t buy new devices, as your current equipment (desktop, laptop, smartphone) may still be able to satisfy the legal and technical requirements.

Contact us and see how easy it is to meet the requirements.
