Abstract:

THE OBJECTIVE OF THIS PROJECT IS TO INVESTIGATE THE USE OF SEVERAL TECHNOLOGIES WHICH, TAKEN TOGETHER IN A COMPLETE SYSTEM, PROVIDE THE CAPABILITY TO TRACK PHARMACEUTICAL PRODUCTS/SERVICES IN BOTH A RETROSPECTIVE AND PROSPECTIVE MANNER. THE APPROACH IS TO DESIGN A SYSTEM USING BAR CODES, OCR, AND ELECTRONIC DATA TRANSFER TECHNIQUES TO TRACK PRODUCT/SERVICES REQUIRED BY THE PHARMACEUTICAL RESOURCES BRANCH (PRB) FOR PRODUCTION AND CONTROL PURPOSES. RECENT ADVANCES IN THESE FIELDS SUGGEST THAT PRODUCTS AND DOCUMENTATION COULD BE ""TAGGED'' AND AUTOMATICALLY TRACKED TO A GREAT EXTENT, AS THE ITEMS TRAVELED THROUGH THEIR LIFE CYCLE FROM GENERATION TO FINAL RECEIPT AT NIH. THE ABILITY TO TRACK A PRODUCT AND KNOW WHERE ITS DOCUMENTATION IS AT ANY STAGE OF ITS LIFETIME WILL FACILITATE THE PRODUCTION AND CONTROL REQUIRED BY THE PRB.
