Pharmaceutical Supply Chain Security

Ensure detection, tracking and reporting of suspicious drug orders with a controlled substance management program.

We support and streamline the security of the drug supply chain


The 2013 federal Drug Supply Chain Security Act (DSCSA) requires standardized, unit-level traceability of pharmaceutical products along the entire drug supply chain, with a goal of end-to-end unit-level traceability by November 27, 2023. We partner with you every step of the way to ensure the safety and integrity of the products you order.

We work with you to achieve complete and real-time compliance in these key areas:

  • Product identification
  • Tracing and verification
  • Detection and response
  • Notification

Effective controlled substances management

Our Controlled Substance Monitoring Program offers effective safety checks against the diversion of controlled substances – a primary aim of the DSCSA – and assists with the detection and reporting of suspicious orders.

Controlled Substances Ordering System

Our Controlled Substance Ordering System (CSOS) eliminates the paper triplicate Form 222 requirement for Class II narcotics orders. CSOS seamlessly integrates with all controlled substance ordering technology, and orders are easily placed as part of your pharmacy management system or through our pharmaceutical ordering platform.
