Uzbekistan to launch system for control of pharmaceutical products.
A pilot version of the information system for control and accounting of pharmaceutical products' movement will be launched in Uzbekistan beginning from July 1, 2019, "Podrobno.uz" reported citing a government decree.
The Uzinfocom Center, the State Unitary enterprise under the Ministry for Development of Information Technologies and Communications of the Republic of Uzbekistan will be engaged in development of the system. It will collect detailed information on pharmaceutical products sold in Uzbekistan, as well as information on parties involved in the goods' supply chain, from the manufacturer to the consumer.
The main advantage of the new system is the implementation of automated tracking of movement and accounting of products through special marking.
In the future, it is planned to integrate it with the systems and databases of the "Health Care" complex, which will allow for introducing the procedure of prescribing pharmaceutical products by a doctor using an electronic prescription form, which will be the basis for the release of that product from the pharmacy.
The Ministry of Health should sum up the results of the pilot project until February 20, 2020 and submit its proposals on the final terms of connection to the system of all participants in the supply chain of pharmaceutical products, having provided for a ban on the sale of the information system to the legal entities not connected to the system.
