Following а robust selection process organised by the Bulgarian Medicine Verification Organisation (BgMVO), Solidsoft Reply, the Reply group company specialising in enterprise strength solutions on the Microsoft Azure cloud platform, has been selected and signed an agreement to implement and operate the National Medicines Verification System in Bulgaria. The Bulgarian Medicines Verification Organisation is a not-for- profit organisation, incorporated in 2016, responsible for the implementation of the EU’s Falsified Medicines Directive (Directive 2011/62/EU).
The BgMVO join similar organisations in Sweden, Denmark, Ireland and Slovenia in a rapidly increasing list of European markets to engage Solidsoft Reply to implement their certified national blueprint solution.
The implementation of the Medicines Verification System across Europe is a key measure to ensure patient safety by preventing falsified medicines from entering the legitimate medicines supply chain. The Falsified Medicines Directive published by the European Parliament and the European Commission states that each eligible medicinal product must have a unique identifier and tamper-evident seal to allow for the authentication of each medicine pack at the point of dispensing which mandates safety features on medicines in Europe which will provide European and Bulgarian patients with reassurance against falsified medicines. A European Delegated Act was then passed in February 2016 which requires the full implementation of the European Medicines Verification System by February 2019.
Solidsoft Reply was previously selected by the European Medicines Verification Organisation (EMVO) to implement the European Medicines Verification Hub, enabling medicine manufacturers and parallel distributors to upload their pack data which is then routed to appropriate national systems. The Solidsoft Reply National Blueprint solution, has been designed from the ground up to meet the exact needs of the FMD. It is implemented using the very latest Microsoft technology and platformed on the Microsoft Azure Cloud. The futureproofed solution automatically scales ensuring that the challenging response times are always able to be achieved.
The BgMVO has been established in 2016 through a collaboration between key stakeholders in the pharmaceutical industry. Its founder members include: Association of Research-based Pharmaceutical Manufacturers in Bulgaria, Bulgarian Generic Pharmaceutical Association, Bulgarian Association for Medicines Parallel Trade Development, Bulgarian Association of Pharmaceutical Wholesalers and the Bulgarian Pharmaceutical Union.
