Cold Chain Data Management – Combining Temperature & Shipment Information

Avoiding Data Overload

Temperature monitoring is an important part of the pharmaceutical cold chain management. Thousands of temperature sensitive pharmaceutical products are being shipped daily accompanied by data loggers tracking the temperature during transportation. Today the shipping information is often processed independently of temperature data. As an identifier the ID Number of the data logger is entered into a database at the sender. At destination this is not visible or has to be retrieved in a complicated way.

A new approach will combine the shipping information with the temperature date. This data management encompasses the collection, availability and use of data (temperature and shipping), to assure the integrity of the products during transportation and storage.

The challenges are:

  • Allocation of shipment information (AWB, Origin, Destination etc.) to the temperature data
  • Informing the data management system about the new open shipment
  • Assuring the data integrity over the supply chain
  • Collecting the data from several countries
  • Archiving all these data
  • Processing the alarms according to an alarm dispositive
  • Allowing data access to the right people
  • Reducing the total costs

This free webinar will show one ideal way to manage this data in a cost effective way.
