As of 2019, every package of a prescription medicine in Europe must have a unique barcode that is recorded in a central European database. Inther Group has developed a software solution for FMD.
FMD (Falsified Medicines Directive) is a European directive to prevent counterfeit medicines from ending up in the legal distribution chain and ultimately ending up in the hands of patients. Individual medicines need to be verified using this central database.
The Inther FMD application supports processes required for a successful FMD integration. The most important functions are verifying and dispensing individual medicines in a central European database. In this web based solution, GS1 barcodes can be scanned and transferred to the NMVS database with the chosen action.
