Dubai Health Authority (DHA) on Tuesday announced that it has adopted a pharmaceutical track and trace system, which aims to monitor medication from when they are at manufacturing companies in the UAE or abroad until they reach the patient.

The DHA said it is the first organisation to adopt this system in the UAE, which complements the barcoding system adopted by the authority in 2017. It will start implementing the new system in the middle of 2020, adding that it has started discussions with major pharmaceutical companies.

The DHA stressed that the new system helps combat potential counterfeit medication and ensures accuracy and credibility with regards to insurance claims for dispensing medications.
