WAKEFIELD, MA--(Marketwired - Nov 20, 2014) - TraceLink Inc., the leader in protecting patient safety and enabling health for global Life Sciences, today announced that its Life Sciences Cloud is now the largest track and trace network serving the Life Sciences industry, having exceeded more than 50,000 connected members across the pharmaceutical supply chain. As pharmaceutical manufacturers, distributors, repackagers, and dispensers seek secure and cost-effective ways to meet new regulations under the U.S. Drug Supply Chain Security Act (DSCSA), the TraceLink Life Sciences Cloud has quickly become the preferred track and trace platform for conducting DSCSA compliant transactions between supply chain trading partners -- and ensuring that critical medicines reach patients the safest, most secure, and most timely manner possible.

"The growth we're experiencing with the TraceLink Life Sciences Cloud is unprecedented. It validates the fact that TraceLink is able to provide the pharmaceutical supply chain with greater connectivity, visibility and traceability of prescription medications than any other platform on the market," said Shabbir Dahod, president and CEO of TraceLink. "This important industry milestone widens our differentiated approach toward serving Life Sciences companies, just like the innovative step we recently took to help any pharmaceutical supply chain business to achieve January 1 DSCSA compliance in just 5 days. It's all part of our unwavering commitment to ensure patient safety, simplify supply chain complexity -- and most importantly, do whatever it takes to put our customers in the best position to thrive and prosper."

The TraceLink Life Sciences Cloud: An Industry-Leading Approach to Track and Trace

Built on the Amazon Web Services global cloud infrastructure as a native cloud based application, the TraceLink Life Science Cloud uses on-demand computing resources and database architectures specifically designed to handle massive sets of track and trace data and network connections in ways that traditional, on premise systems and relational databases cannot. A single connection to the Life Sciences Cloud delivers end-to-end compliance for all DSCSA requirements of the largest pharmaceutical company or the smallest pharmacy across all supplier and trading partner relationships. Once on the Life Sciences Cloud, manufacturers, wholesalers, pharmacies, and even medical practitioners can instantly begin sharing DSCSA compliance documents and data with any trading partner that is already configured on the network.

With the rapid growth of the TraceLink Life Sciences Cloud, pharmaceutical companies and others seeking secure and cost-effective DSCSA solutions typically find that over 90% of the suppliers and trading partners they do business with are already on the network.
