Dinocrates CTO Served as Keynote for Drug Information Association (DIA) Regulatory Submissions, Information and Document Management Forum
Dinocrates Group today announced its CTO, Jim St. Clair, delivered the keynote for the Drug Information Association’s (DIA) Forum on Regulatory Submissions, Information, and Document Management (RDISM) in Bethesda, Md. St. Clair provided an insider’s perspective about the ways in which blockchain is being piloted for use in the drug information supply chain.
Blockchain has the potential to dramatically improve elements of the pharmaceutical supply chain by helping pharma companies and distributors improve security and traceability to cut down on the spread of counterfeit drugs. With barcode-tagged drugs scanned and entered into secure digital blocks whenever they change hands, an ongoing real-time record can be viewed anytime by authorized parties throughout the supply chain.
St. Clair, who also founded the Institute for Healthcare Financial Technology, presented to a packed crowd of regulatory specialists on the use of blockchain to create immutable records of drug information transactions. As part of the presentation, he explained how using blockchain distributed ledgers can help facilitate compliance with the International Standards framework for the Identification of Medicinal Products (IDMP).
St. Clair is leading the effort to establish one of the first blockchain solutions labs for the public and life sciences sectors. The lab, known as ALEXANDER, will host demonstrable solutions and concepts to showcase blockchain applications for industry processes.
