The Adents Team Written by The Adents Team

As part of the HDA’s VRS task force to ensure compliance with DSCSA’s requirements for the verification of saleable returns, Adents successfully completed end-to-end testing for Verification Request routing including Look-up Directory synchronization with several solution providers. Adents VRS, developed in partnership with Microsoft, is the unique solution currently tested by 4 of the top 5 largest Pharma wholesalers in the US.

Testing the Verification Router Service in Real Conditions

During this test, wholesale distributors generated product verification requests by sending to Adents VRS. Based on the internal Blockchain-based Look-up Directory, Adents VRS determined where to route the request and sent it to another solution provider, from where the response was generated and routed back via Adents VRS to the requestor. This test includes a connection with manufacturers owns serialization repository.

The significance of this achievement is proof of the VRS ecosystem interoperability, as it was envisioned by HDA VRS working group that laid out the key principles of the saleable returns verification system. This was an exciting moment during what was a major team effort and the system is now ready to be commercialized.

While it may be a little too early to declare the HDA VRS effort to be a complete success, it is safe to say that the developed business requirements, VRS ecosystem architecture and messaging standards development are on the right track.

Adents VRS, developed in partnership with Microsoft, is being tested by 4 major wholesale distributors as well as manufacturers participating in this group effort.
