DOMINO SPONSORS MAJOR SUMMIT ON ROLE OF CODING, RFID AND EPC IN SECURE HEALTHCARE SUPPLY CHAINS

The hottest topic in healthcare supply chain management - how best to exploit track-and-trace technologies such as coding, RFID and EPC to ensure security and protect patients - will come under the spotlight at a major conference in Dublin on Thursday, 30th November 2006 at IBM's RFID Centre of Excellence.

Sponsored by Domino's Integrated Solutions Group, "Securing the European Healthcare Supply Chain - Where does RFID/EPC fit?" is presented by the GS1 Europe European Healthcare Initiative in conjunction with EPCglobal's Healthcare & Life Sciences business action group.

The event will feature a line-up of high-calibre authorities drawn from RFID/EPC communities on both sides of the Atlantic, including John M. Gray, president and CEO of the Healthcare Distribution Management Association (HDMA), the US's leading representative body for the healthcare distribution industry. Mr Gray will provide an update on recent developments in the United States, where the Federal Drug Administration continues to drive progress in key areas such as 'electronic pedigrees' for pharmaceuticals to combat the threat of counterfeit products.

A complementary overview of what is happening in Europe will be provided by Hugo Bonar, manager of the enforcement unit of the Irish Medicines Board. Bob Celeste of EPCglobal will report on the latest developments within EPCglobal's Healthcare & Life Sciences action group. Dr Barry White from Ireland's National Centre for Hereditary Coagulation Disorders in Ireland will present a vivid example of the potential of track and trace technologies to secure supply chains.
