ePedigree provides information of drug movement in entire supply chain – From manufacturing to Pharmacy. This has been initiated by California board of pharmacy as a part of anti-counterfeit drugs program. This will provide genuine medicine to patients and also secure product authenticity and reduce loss due to stolen identity.

Analyzing ePedigree in print form may be tedious because it may run in pages providing details of manufactures and various transactions done till it reaches Pharmacy. It would be better to get the details in a report where a product authenticator can perform due diligence on product to confirm its identity.

Let us understand what kind of information is required on pedigree report and how it can be analyzed to confirm product identity.

Brand name

Generic name
