How many medicines can be analyzed using the Verify system?

Approximately 300 of the most commonly prescribed medicines can be analyzed using the Verify system, which includes nearly half of the W.H.O. Essential Medicines, and this coverage will be expanded over time.

What data can Verify collect and report?

Verify collects and reports the essential information concerning medicines in your organization’s supply chain including location, protocol requirements, primary data and results from chemical screens and assays, as well as procedures and users engaged in handling medicines.

How does Verify identify the quality and safety of medicines in the supply chain?

Medicines are destructively tested locally with PADs and then undergo further chemical analysis by certified laboratories to confirm their safety.

What are the main benefits of using Verify?

Verify fills a critical gap in existing safety monitoring systems by providing actionable information obtained from chemical analysis of medicines that is accessed from commonly used browsers and mobile devices.

What insight and intelligence can be learned from the reporting and analytics available from Verify?

Verify provides reports of current and historical results by API, by location, by lot number, by manufacturer, among other factors; highlighting the emergence of hotspots where SFs appear with increasing frequency or jump across locations/regions; as well as trends and predictive indicators of quality risks in your organization, which inform mitigation actions by your team and business partners (eg., pharmacy managers, clinicians, purchasers, distributors, manufacturers, regulatory agencies, etc.).

How does Verify complement existing systems that monitor the physical characteristics of product packaging, appearance, and location in the supply chain?

Verify complements existing approaches by introducing high-volume and systematic chemical testing of medicines as they move through the supply chain prior to being dispensed to patients.

How is the information in Verify protected and secured?

Verify encrypts and transacts all essential information onto a blockchain distributed ledger. This process maintains an immutable chain-of-custody, a digital history, enabling stakeholders to confirm the accuracy of this information to support decision-making and satisfy compliance requirements.

When my organization adopts Verify, what will be included in our subscription?

A subscription to ARTiFACTS Verify includes use of the Verify LIMS (laboratory information management system) across all operational nodes in your organization, supplies of PADs, use of mobile PADReader App with its trained neural net databases, laboratory processing services, training materials, and product support.

What information should my organization provide to obtain a quote for a subscription to Verify?

Please provide a list of the APIs (active pharmaceutical ingredients) you intend to monitor, the number and types of sites to be monitored (eg., clinic, hospital, pharmacy, distribution facility, or other), and their locations in your operation.
