PharmaLedger 1st Year Anniversary

It’s been a year since the official kick-off meeting in Prague last year of the PharmaLedger project, and exciting things are planned for the second year.

It was truly a challenging year, with all activities being moved online, from technical meetings to focus groups to dissemination webinars. Here are the most important milestones (past and future).

What happened in 2020

  • Design and project foundation successfully created
  • Basic structure of the PharmaLedger trusted blockchain-based open-source platform organized
  • Eight use cases defined

Things to look forward in 2021

  • Adding a stronger focus on two areas to further build trust and transparency: patient engagement and technology education
  • Moving towards the implementation of the open-source platform
  • Use cases lined up for implementation (first MVPs expected by June 2021)

PharmaLedger has eight use cases in total covering supply chains, clinical trials and health data. PharmaLedger is a three-year project sponsored by the Innovative Medicines Initiative (IMI) and European Federation of Pharmaceutical Industries and Associations (efpia) that brings together a consortium made up of 29 partners who are working together to build a trusted platform using blockchain technology and in addition create many healthcare applications.

RomSoft is a partner in the PharmaLedger research consortium and, alongside Novartis, technical coordinator of the PharmaLedger blockchain.
