Could a smarter prescription bottle cure the drug industry?

GSMS, Inc., a midsize pharmaceutical manufacturer and specialty packaging company, saw an opportunity to make drugs safer, sooner. Legislation in California requires all drugs to be serialized and traced through the supply chain by 2015. Rather than wait for the deadline, GSMS decided to get a jump on the competition. Working with IBM and DSS, an IBM Business Partner, GSMS designed a sophisticated track-and-trace system using 2-D bar codes and RFID tags. Having a unique serial number on every package of medicine helps GSMS prevent counterfeit products from ever entering the supply chain. Now patients can have confidence in the medications they're taking.
