summer 2018, IMVO is running a pilot of the Irish Medicines Verification System
(IMVS) to ensure that it functions correctly with pharmacy and wholesalers
systems and that associated IMVO procedures work efficiently.
IMVS is fully ‘live’ during the pilot and the packs scanned are actual
serialised packs that have been placed on the market in Ireland and distributed
through wholesaler. We will use the learnings from the pilot to fine-tune our
procedures and plan the full ramp-up phase of the project where we start to
onboard all the remaining end-users (pharmacies, wholesalers, hospitals) ahead
of 9th February 2019
would like to thank all the pharmacies, hospitals, manufacturers, wholesalers
and IT software providers who have volunteered to take part in the pilot as
their support will play a key role in ensuring that Ireland is ready by the
February 2019 deadline. We would also like to acknowledge the support of the
Irish Pharmacy Union which is providing extensive assistance with the community
pharmacy part of the pilot.
If you are interested in
joining the IMVO pilot, please email us at email@example.com. We are particularly keen to
involve more hospitals and manufacturers.
