Tamper Evident Security Seals For Pharmacy Transport Pouches.
Solving the problem of securing drugs whilst in transit has become significantly easier with the brand new patented security seal from PM Strategic Sourcing; a value added reseller of the Veraspak range of Pharmacy products.
Drugs and medicines leaving the Pharmacy department in a zipped transport pouch should be sealed with a tamper evident security seal. Sealing the pouch or case ensures the products arrive "fit for purpose" at their destination. The addition of a unique sequential barcode greatly increases the ability to track and trace the goods ensuring they are collected and delivered within the required timescales. This is particularly relevant for Cytotoxic drugs where both timescale and temperature control are essential.
The new seal performs both of these functions and is able to be printed with a barcode format to suit the operating system used within the department. The seals are also available in a range of different colours.
At the collection point the sealed pouch would be scanned recording the date, time and location on a handheld terminal, the exercise would be repeated at the delivery point giving the pharmacy accurate data on the delivery timings. This information would be downloaded at the end of the day to a database and saved offering data that can then be analysed to ensure delivery criteria is being met or more importantly maintained.
The distinct benefits of using a barcoded seal are as follows:
- No need to manually record data
- Easy operation with accurate data
- Route monitoring
- GS1 and Peppol (Scan4Safety) conformity
- Confidentiality and security of drugs and medicines
- Availability of accurate data on delivery performance that can be measured against KPIs
Simple Handheld scanners for Couriers
We are able to offer a number of Motorola hand held scanning options that would be carried by the drivers in order to scan the pouches at the various collection points. Data would be recorded on these devices and downloaded at the end of the route to a database.
